I am thinking of converting the rears on my 72 but don't want to spend a fortune....
What's out there that's good but not expensive....????

In addition to the actual brakes at the wheels what else has to be changed...?
Master cylinder...?
Booster...?

some people have been fine using their disc/drum master cylinder, and you would even be fine using a drum/drum cylinder, when you bleed it, it puts a nice amount of pressure on your pedal, and the car thinks you have all 4 drums, you dont have to press as hard to get stopping power.


but seeing as you can buy a disc/disc master cylinder for fairly cheap you may want to opt for that.

the booster shouldnt need to be replaced unless its damaged in some way, or if you find a good deal on a booster/master combo

If you're looking for affordability I say go with the LS brakes from a 98-02 camaro/firebird. Its a direct bolt on same lug pattern. And you can use the power booster/master and prop valve. Its all factory GM so finding brake pads and replacement parts are fairly easy. I found my complete set front and rear at a local wrecking yard for 200.00 I have about 325 total investment with front bracket and cleaning supplies and caliper paint.
