disk brake kit
« on: December 06, 2017, 05:51:19 AM »
 I have a 1951 Chevy truck with stock straight axle but it has spindles off a 49-54 car. Im looking for a disk brake kit that will fit.  All the kits I find either needs stock spindles or don't work with straight axle.  Does anyone know if the car kit will fit or will I need to go back to stock spindle.

Thanks for the pic. I'm going to call speedway and see what they say. They might change the kit to make it work. I just do want to change spindles again I just put them on.

(just old).  I talked to speedway motors and they said I needed to use the the car kit but I might have some hitting on the strait axle when you make a  turns. He said that's a common problem. Do you have any problems with yours hit or any other problems. I'm going to order the kit in a few days.
