front brake conversion to disc
« on: August 02, 2006, 12:17:04 AM »
I'am to upgrade my drum to disc and was wondering what the real benefits of gettting a 2" drop spindle would do for me?

Everyone I talked to about it says not to and go with standard new spindals.


thanks

Nick P
any help on this ?

Dropped spindles may "look cool", but it severely limits choice of front tire size and results in tire rubbing issues.

In my opinion if you are going to convert to disc brakes keep the stance of the car as original as possible.

thanks :

I talked to several other on this and I will keep the stance the same.

The pozzi link was a huge help also once again.
