Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: Google
I was looking to get some pointers and ideas on changing our my drum brakes. I have a stock 67 SS, with a 383 stroker in it. I just got 17" wheels and dumped the old 14's that were on it so I could go with 13" discs.

I also want to know about going with a 2" drop spindle, I don't like the stock stance. Will I have clearance issues by lowering the spindles? Also what kinds should I look for, I see mention about problems with some on geometry in ads.

About the brakes, I have been looking at Master Power and Classic Performance products for affordable full kits for first gens. I plan on relacing the whole system and lines at the same time. I don't have power brakes currently, should I make that change it seems like most kits include that. I also have been told to get ceramic pads since they give off less dust, but do they perform? Are they other concerns on a 67 by moving up to 17's and putting on disc brakes?

I was hoping there were people out there that did the swap and had pointers for me on this.

Thanks

I still have stock ralleys, so I run a smaller disc set up. I went with Stainless Steel Brakes. They have everything you need. Cost will vary on the number of pistons you select in the calipers. http://www.stainlesssteelbrakes.com/

A couple of thoughts. I don't have drop spindles on my car, and I do scrape the larger oil pan needed for my stroker. Granted, it's only hitting a dip in the road to hard or on steep driveways, but it does happen.

Second, I don't know how big of a cam you have, but if you are planning to go to power brakes, plan to also use a vacuum tank, or an electric pump.
