Rear Disc Brake Conversion Kit Small Bearing 8"/9" 1965-1973 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit that is easy to install. I bought this kit for my '66 Coupe to get rid of the drum brakes. If you don't want to break the bank on a setup that costs significantly more, or you are never going to hit the autocross track, this is a nice upgrade for the money. Out of the box, the kit is very nice. I chose to paint the calipers myself versus paying the extra to have them powder coated. The directions that shipped with the kit were very easy to follow and understand, but read it a few times to make sure you know exactly what to do once you start the install. My biggest question was concerning the stock retaining bearing plate. The instructions state that you "may have to remove them", but after asking around, as long as you have enough clearance and the stock T-bolts are long enough, you can leave them on and bolt them up to the new brackets provided. You have the choice to leave them on, cut them off, or have the bearing remove and machine pressed again. After that slight dilemma, the rest of the install is very straight forward while following the instructions. I had to use two of the provided spacers on each side to make up the gap between the axle flange and the new brackets, which is normal, and I used to smallest bracket spacers provided as well. There are a couple of videos that you can watch on the site included in the instructions that will help with the parking brake adjustment, etc. My only issue with kit is that the parking brake cables that are supplied will not fit a '66 with a stock parking brake configuration that utilizes one cable, vice two, like the '65 does. You will have to make your stock parking brake cables work, or purchase different ones that will work for your application. The supplier noted that these are only generic parking brake cables and may not fit all applications. If these cables would have fit right out of the box, I would have given this product an overall rating of 5 stars.

Converting a "J code" 68 fastback 8" rear end from drum to disc with this kit. Do I need to change the proportioning valve as well? And do I need a new master cylinder? Any info would be great thanks

Asked by: TMO22
you will want a new master and proportioning valve for a complete system.  the adjustable proportioning valve will allow you to fine tune the bias to get the most out of your new rear disc brakes.

I have a 68 stock will this kit fit? How would i know if its a small or large bearing. Thank you

Asked by: 19stang68
the best way is to measure the pattern on the bolts that hold the axle retainer to the housing.  the small pattern is 3.375 wide 2 inch tall on center

will this fit 1973 mustang with 8 inch rear. if so does the master cylinder or per portioning valve need changing

Asked by: chopper
You would have to check the axle bearing size it will only fit the small bearing and it will not fit on a car with staggered shocks. You would need to install an adjustable proportioning valve.

By Bill Tumas: We're here with the rear disc brake conversion kit for your '64 through '73 Mustang. The kit comes with everything necessary to install rear disc brakes on your '64 through '73 Mustang equipped with an 8-inch rear or a small bearing 9-inch rear. It includes the hoses, mounting brackets, rotors, two loaded calipers, as well as a set of parking brake cables. This complete kit is a very affordable way to add disc brakes to the rear of your classic Mustang. While some 14-inch wheels will clear, we suggest you use the 15-inch or larger wheels when converting to rear disc brakes.
