1958-64 Cars came with a single master cylinder that feed the drum brake system. The power disc brake system upgrades to a dual master cylinder and proportional valve. This allows the brake fluid system to be separate decreasing total system failure if one line is compromised. If your stock Chevy is in need of disc brakes this is the setup for you. Also offered is a 2" drop spindle kit. This kit lowers the car using a drop spindle. When upgrading to disc brake the car should be upgraded to 3/16 brake line, this size line build up more pressure and gives a much better pedal feel. 3/16" line is commonly used for disc brakes while 1/4" line is used on full drum brake cars.
