how to get more stopping power from front brakes?

Post by dhw3971 on Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:37 pm

I would like to get some better braking performance for my station wagon. I'm guessing that upgrading the front discs would be the place to begin but I don't know where to start: remove OEM rubber and replace with braided steel lines, new pads only, new calipers and pads or go whole-hog and get a kit that replaces the rotors/pads/calipers.

What is your two cents' worth on disc brakes?

Ceramic pads, and make sure its got 11x2" drums.

Save for swapping in the 12" B-body brakes and rear disc brakes, theres not much more you can do to the system we have.

You could swap in stiffer springs in the front to reduce the dive and let the rears do more work.
