Our disc brake conversions are handled by skilled and experienced auto enthusiasts.
The brake system is one of the most important safety features on any vehicle, but if you’re cruising in a model that pre-dates disc brakes, you may not be in a vehicle that is very safe. Many classic vehicles, such as those manufactured before the 1970s, contain front drum brakes, which aren’t as safe as disc brakes. Luckily, you don’t have to give up your beloved ride to improve its safety. Instead, bring it to us at Father & Son Collision and Classic Car Restoration, where we offer disc brake conversions for classic car owners.
Disc brakes became standard on vehicles in the 1970s, so most models that were made during or after that decade will have disc brakes. If you’re driving a Chrysler, you may already have a set of disc brakes as this manufacturer made them standard several decades before others. Rear drum brakes are generally considered to be acceptable from a safety standpoint, but since front brakes do most of the work when you hit the brake pedal, it’s important to make sure they’re safe and ready to engage. Drum brakes require more adjustment than disc brakes, and they can also be impacted by debris, moisture, and heat. Having them replaced and the brake system converted can drastically improve the safety and stopping power of your car.
