Some of our members have had very good luck with these. Ask a question and I am sure they will advise you.

Yea Jim these kits are the best and easiest to put on , I bought the basic kit from Roger and he even told me I could buy all of the rest of the parts I needed at my local parts house. He is a real square shooter and a nice guy to talk to. He will bend over backwards to help you. Smile

I know I've commented on aaj somewhere else, but it bears repeating! My experiences are the same as sir robert. I highly recommend this. As you know, in order to be factory correct, a forward look mopar's brakes don't work properly.

I have been thinking very seriously about putting them on the rear of RedSled. I may wait till the back shoes are done for. I don't wear them out like I did , I mean the rear ones since I have put a line lock on RedSled for the burnouts, I am going to try and just do a small burnout , Just enough to wipe my tires off and see how that works, I can't buy a set of rear tires every year. Cost is to much. Smile

I wasn't impressed with the Scarebird kit. If I do another I will use the AAJ kit.

Both hoses listed are way to short to meet with the factory hose bracket, and the large pickup truck calipers hit the upper arm, reducing your turning radius.

Joe I talked to Roger and he said beings i would not need an emergency brake he could really give me a great deal on the basic kit for the rear. I think i will probly go that way. Will be a Winter Project. Then I will find out about the front for Eva's 65. If yu are going to have to replace some shoes or drums, it wold be a much better way to do it. Then You wouldn't have to worry about shoes a few years down the line' Smile I know I sure love the fronts on RedSled, one of the best things I had ever done to her. Smile

Does anybody know which calipers and rotors this kit uses? The scare bird is an ok t-bird of I recall and they are not easy to come by and requires 15 inch wheels
