Video: Disc Brake Conversion Caliper Options Explained

Posted by David Alkire on May 20th 2021

When deciding where to start when upgrading your cars performance, there's no better place to begin than the brakes. Everyone loves a screamin' V8 powered, 500 horsepower muscle car, but at the end of the day, if you leave the stock drum brakes or disc brakes you're going to run into trouble.

Some key points of interest when buying a disc brake conversion kit or just upgrading your current disc brake setup would be; how many pistons (pots) the caliper has, what the piston is made of, size of the rotor the new caliper can handle and if the new brake setup will work with your wheel specs.

If you are looking at getting a big brake kit, some good names to look for would be, Wilwood Brakes, Brembo Brakes, Baer Brakes and Stoptech!
