Hello,
I am looking to convert my drum breaks to disc breaks on all 4 wheels. Does anyone know where I could find a kit to do this for a 1956 Dodge Royal Lancer? Are there any key details/ parts that I need to know?
Thanks,
Willl

Here is a Scarebird kit for your car as well. I have a Scarebird disc kit up front on my 1956 Imperial and AAJ discs on all four corners of my 1960 Plymouth.

How big are those Ford Probe rotors that the Scarebird kit uses on the '55-'56?

ECI also makes conversion. I don't know of any companies that make conversions for the original 8 1/4 rear end. http://www.ecihotrodbrakes.com/dodge_plymouth_discbrake_conversions...
