Larger rotors up front, disc in the back, new booster and master cylinder. Check with Baer Racing www.baerracing.com , Stainless Steel Brakes www.ssbrakes.com , Wilwood www.wilwood.com , Master Power Brakes www.mpbrakes.com ,Performance Friction www.performancefriction.com , or one of the other aftermarket brake companies for a complete kit.

Imagine what he pays for shipping to Iran! I was there in the late 70's when we launched the Cadillac plant that built Sevilles from knocked-down kits from the U.S. when the Shah was still running the store......later, after Khomeini and the fundamentalists took over, it was one of the last foreign-owned businesses to be nationalized and shut down.
