These versatile kits are easily optioned to suit the braking requirements and style preferences for a daily driver or the most discriminating show enthusiast. Require no modifications for installation, and clear most 14" and 15" OEM wheels.
Classic Series FDL-M kits can be used with either manual or power boost master cylinders, and come complete with calipers, rotors, brackets, hardware and detailed installation instructions. Kit requires purchase of additional brake line kit shown below.
