66 impala front brakes
 
what ,if any, later disc brakes will work on my 66 impala.Spindles and all.It's ss 4speed and it will not stop with the old drums :eek:

my son has a 66 also, and was told a 69&70 impala car or wagon will work,you must use:
spindle
upper & lower ball joints
tierod assy's
center drag link
and all of the brake parts
good luck

also another option is year one sells a kit for front and rear discs this is the route i will most likely go with my 66 caprice

Hi all,

I did this swap on my 65 Impala SS. You don't need the tie rod stuff, the existing fits. Just replace what is bad. You need the master cylinder and metering valve and the left front hard brake line from the donor car. The rear line will fit with one of the brake line flair nut adapter that all the parts houses have. You will also have to go to 15" wheels to clear the discs. Mine sures stops nice now. 67 and 68 will work also, but they are the 4 piston disk brakes and parts are tough to find and I don't think they work as well as the floating calipers.

Hope this helps
Doug

If you read in the top left corner of a post you'll see the date it was done on. In this post it was back in 2003. THe issue was likely resolved and a reply 9 years later won't help anybody. I see you've done this on a couple of these threads from the dead.
