Re: Any tips anyone want to give on a disc brake conversion?
Also, not sure what kind of calipers you will be using, but if you are going with the single piston floating caliper design like the 69's use, beware of possible interference between the brake line mounting boss on the caliper and the bump stop welded to the subframe. This will show up with the wheel cut all the way. I have found that the Chevelle / Monte Carlo calipers have a lower mounting point for the hose and will clear. If you are using an aftermarket lower control arm that has provisions for a bump stop like 68/69 uses, you can cut the bump stop mounts off your subframe and avoid this issue.
