Every part we use is carefully chosen as if we were going to install it on our own cars. Since we started in 1983 we've said, "If we can't be proud of it, we won't sell it."
Each brake conversion kit we sell is designed and engineered to fit a specific vehicle and application. Every step is taken to make your conversion as much of a bolt-on as possible.
Making your installation easy really matters to us. We supply components that match the application, pre-assemble as much as possible and package everything carefully and in an organized manner while providing you with clear, concise instructions.
Individual hobbyist customers and dealer/installers praise our ability to listen and determine the best solution for each project. Have an issue or question? Or simply want to review an installation guide? Just call. We'd love to help.

Looking for a simple, straight-forward brake upgrade for your 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle? Look no further. If you can remove the original drum brake assembly from the rear axle housing, you can install our disc brake conversion kit. After the drum is removed and the axle replaced back in the housing, everything bolts on with zero modifications.
All of our primary caliper mounting brackets are manufactured from 3/8” thick steel. We could go with a thinner material to keep costs down but let’s face it, we are dealing with brakes. After the brackets are manufactured, we have them coated with a finish that keeps the brackets from rusting - providing your classic 1969 Chevelle years of good looks and no rust.
When you receive a Legend Series rear brake conversion kit, you get everything necessary to install the kit on your '69 Chevelle. Every part from the calipers and rotors to the park brake cables.
