    Default Big Brakes on my Elky

    I am wanting to upgrade my braking system soon on my 70' elky. I have factory front disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear. I have a few questions in regards to the CCP big brake kits. I read the tech article where the nova big brake kit was used on the 68' Chevelle to change the offset using the nova hubs. How much does it change it? I am running 17x9 torq thrust 2's with 4" of backspace on 255/45/17's BGF G-Force T/A KDW's. I would like them to not be so close to the fender. I'm getting ready to lower it in the front by 1" and would love the extra clearance.

    The #2 question is as i already have front disc's and will be using my stock spindles. I recently installed a new master cylinder, and vacuum booster. From what it looks like I can use the MCPV-1 in place of the M/C but still use my booster?

    I plan on getting these items, am i forgetting anything?

    Good Morning,

    with using the Nova hubs (like all our A, F, and X body setups) this makes the front end have ZERO offset. This means the track width of the front end is not widened over the stock drum application. On your application it pulls the wheels in about 5/8" per side.

    You can use the MCPV-1 on your booster.


    I changed your list a bit... See the BOLD
