Replacing Rear Disc Brakes

Sign in
Duration: 35:07

While front disc brake conversions are popular on classic cars, rear brakes can be equally as important and should not be overlooked. Mark Simpson takes us through the process to remove the original rear drums and hardware from our project ’57 DeSoto, including the use of a drum puller. Then starting with a clean slate he takes us through the process of installing new caliper brackets, dust shields, rotors and calipers. While rear brakes only account for 30% of the stopping power of your car, Mark reminds us that should the front brakes fail the rear brakes become 100% of the ability of you to stop your car safely.
