Stop Straight And Safe With Front Disc Brakes From Dearborn Classics
If you’re thinking of a “hot swap,” one of the changeovers near the top of our list would have to be swapping out OEM front drum brakes in favor of a set of front disc brakes. Disc brakes have numerous advantages over drums, and adding them to your vintage Mustang or Ford is one of the most worthwhile swaps you can make. With the addition of disc brakes, you’ll reduce fade considerably. Disc brakes shed heat much more efficiently than drums, so heat doesn’t build up nearly as fast. Heat buildup and retention causes fade, and brakes that stay cooler will stop your car better.
