Here are the components for the front of the car. It's SSBC's TriPower three-piston, drum to disc conversion kit with 2-inch forged drop spindles and 13-inch rotors (PN W129-40). The kit comes complete with all the necessary hardware needed for the job. The drop spindles will lower the ride height for improved handling thanks to the lower center of gravity, but will push out the wheels almost a 1/2-inch per side-keep that in mind when ordering wheels. The spindles use the factory steering arms for easy steering hook up. The heart of the kit is the 3-piston aluminum calipers and 13-inch Turbo slotted and drilled rotors. The calipers feature a lightweight aluminum body filled with three 43mm stainless steel pistons that help insulate the brake fluid against fade-inducing heat. Also, they use standard off the shelf pads for easy replacement. The larger rotors give the new calipers a better leverage advantage and combined with the extra clamping force, you can start to see why we needed these on the Bel Air.
