Converting Drum to Disk brakes

Post by streetracerwhite » Fri Feb 12, 2010 7:57 pm

Ok huge shot in the dark but does anyone know if upgrading just the front brakes to disk would be enough or would it just cost me more in the long run than getting the rear ones done.

What do you plan to do with it, most anything you would do would be ok with just a front disc conversion on it.

Then I would probably do just a front brake conversion, and save your money for something else you want to do.
