Brakes are probably one of the best mechanical features to upgrade on a classic vehicle. Many enthusiasts prefer vintage engines to modern ones for the nostalgic sound of the overhead valve configuration. But no one misses classic brakes. The brakes available on the 1966-1977 Broncos were fine for the time. But compared to the restomod options available, their stopping power falls short.
Not only can you upgrade your Bronco to disc brakes, but you can convert your manual brakes to power brakes. Getting a little help with braking can make a big difference and could even prevent an accident.
If you don’t want to go for a full brake conversion, upgrading your brake rotors or brake pads can make a big difference.
