?? What's wrong with what your using now? I had a 70 Charger and thought the disks worked fine. I don't know if the Chargers had smaller disk diameters for the small blocks as mine was a factory 440 x 4 speed. But if they do it would be easiest to go with the big block brakes.

Now you got me wondering if my Charger had disks of drums??? It's been almost 20 years ago. Brain Fade!! I'd stick with the Mopar disks.If you put Fords on it, you'd have to call your car a FoPar!!

Or worse..... a Mord!

The easiest way by far is to use MOPAR disks. Check these instructions on how to do this swap.
