I'll be doing the same on my 73 over the winter using mustang Steve brackets. Any pros, cons, advice or how to's you ran into? Managed to find rebuilt cobra labeled calipers.

I notched my Mustang Steve brackets to allow the bracket to slide over the axle. Keeps you from having to press the bearings off. You do have to cut the retainer plate off this way, but it is thin and easy to cut.

The mustang Steve kit uses drum spindles and hubs. What cars interchange with the mustang or other years that may be easier to find? Torino, fairlanes, 69-70 mustangs?
