need just a little help.

Ok I am going to do a standard disc brake conversion from either SSBC or Right stuff and I thought I had all the info I needed and the guy at right stuff asks me if I have a drum brake wheel. I currently have factory drum brakes behind Weld Wheels Pro Stars 14x7 with a 3.75 offset wheel will either of there kits fit behind my wheels? Can somebody tell me what I should be measuring to find out?

Re: need just a little help.

Disk brake kits require the use of 15" wheels. There are some kits for 14" wheels but they are rare and expensive. See link below...
