disc brake swap for a 62 falcon
im slowly working on a 62 ford falcon ranchero.I would like to upgrade the front to disc.
what exactly is interchangable with this?
i would like to replace the control arms too, with new bushings.
without using an aftermarket mustang II kit.

appreciate it!

Look here for brakes.

Welcome to CSRP sells reproduction Granada pieces that will work with some '63-up tie rod parts on your '62. Possibly the control arms need changed also. They sell everything.

Scarebirds kit requires machining. The drum itself is the hub, so you need to have the drum turned into a hub that a rotor can fit on. It works, but if you want to ditch 4 lug and go 5 lug, you need different parts, or the more expensive kit

I have a 62 Falcon sedan:

I bought manual disc brakes off front of a wrecked Maverick. I also removed the master cylinder and proportioning valve from the Maverick

New reproduction upper A arms for early Mustang fit the Falcon and had correct upper ball joint.

My lower ball on my Falcon fit the Maverick spindle.

I bought sleeve adapters for my 6 cyl tie rods to fit the Maverick spindles. Bolted parts on, a few new brake lines , rubber hoses, rebuild on calipers.

My Falcon stops well
