Brakes

The front brakes have been converted to 10.5” vented EBC GD7163 discs using a light weight  Wilwood D154 dual piston aluminum caliper mounted to a custom bracket from David Clemens that positions it at the nine o’clock position. Brake pads are Hawk HP Plus-154 racing compound.

The rear uses stock drums with carbon Kevlar shoes and new hardware again from The Source. All new stock size wheel cylinders and lines were used along with stainless flex hoses.

The parking brake hardware has been removed and self adjusters were replaced with manual kits on rear. Backing plates have been drilled for cooling.
