Q: Front Disc Brake Conversion
hi guys i just got the front brake set up on a nova[think 74] but anyway the steering linkage is behind the tires but the question i have is do i need the upper and lower control arms to or not i was planning on going this friday to pull them off i was going to get the spindals and all attaching hardware rotors,calipers,etc as well as the prop. valve is there anything else i need allready have a new booster and disc-drum master clind. any help would be great as i know a lot of you guys have allready done this.
A: All you need is the spindle and it’s attached hardware (dust shield, caliper bolts, etc.). Just remove the upper and lower ball joints and take everything inbetween. You may also want to take your new booster and compare it to the one on the car (just to be safe). Sometimes the push rod from the pedel to the booster is a little different.
If possible, you may consider pulling the front steel brake lines. You know they fit and you can always use them as a model for new ones.
