    I’m thinking of trying the PST Rear Brake Disc kit. They give a list of a bunch of cars it fits. I sent them a message asking a few questions. Anyone ever buy this kit? Thoughts? Opinions? Thanks guys!!

    I've bought all the parts off of him to build my Dana 60 and even the rear disc brake kit.

    Could you post a link as to which PST brake conversion kit you are referring too?
    With that, I could give you a better answer.

    They have an rear disk brake setup – which I think you might be referring to (for $700 US), maybe https://p-s-t.com/i-23162840-rear-disc-brake-conversion-kit.html#!year%3D1984%7C%7Cmake%3DPLYMOUTH%7C%7Cmodel%3DGRAN%20FURY%20SALON

    This kit has instructions, which I downloaded and attached. I find that reading instructions tells me a lot about possible project.

    Two things I found in the instructions was:
    No mention as what to use for replacement parts (source of replacement brake rotors, pads, calipers, etc.) - for things wear out in time.

    Also, who is LEED Brakes? I thought this was a PST kit.

    LEED brakes are a NY company with a few decades of history. They are a full machine shop that also plates their parts; however, some of their parts are manufactured in Asia, and sent to their shop, but then LEEDS machines the holes, brackets, hardware, and plates it all when they finish...plus they are very knowledgeable for tech support. I recently installed a front and rear drum to disc conversion on a 65 Mustang Fastback and spoke with them several times before and after I purchased the kit for a customer's car. Anyone that has restored older cars using the junk from Taiwan (which is where almost all resto parts are made no matter the rebranded name) you know that nothing fits without reengineering the piece...my experience with LEED was the exception...every piece fit exactly as it should...it was a simple install front and rear. My only issue was the Classic Tube Stainless Steel brake lines the customer brought for me to install...every fitting and flare leaked...I ditched them and made my own out of regular steel. I will definitely use LEED for my Mirada and any other car that I will be converting.

    93-98 jeep rear disc brakes are pretty much a bolt on deal with a few minor modifications.

    Do you think these disk brakes are better than C body 11 inch drums?

    I use the 11" drums on my Volare, the thing that's a plus with drums is there's no drag , parasitic power loss, and yes they work great. My Volare is a bracket car that I dial soft so most of my races are won or lost on the brakes. I can scrub 15 - 20 mph in the lights if needed without locking up the brakes. I once considered putting a 9" in the Volare but Quick Performance would not put mopar ends on the axle for me. I wanted to use my axles and drum brakes that's how well I think they work.
