DON'T DO IT! I saw this tried once on a mustang using a Granada rear with discs (yep you could get a Granada with rear discs) and try as he might he never could get it to work right. Until I saw Timothale's reply I could not understand why it would seem to work, sort of, at slow speeds but not at high speeds and high stopping loads. This kid had that thing over to my shop several times trying different valves and such but when it became obvious it was not going to work I convinced him to spend the money for the front discs. He did get it to the point where it was not really dangerous to drive but under heavy braking it just did not feel right, come to think of it we only tried it on a dry road so I am not sure how safe it would have been on wet pavement.
