Re: [GFS] Updated Braking Options

I converted my 59 Sport Fury by using 75 Dodge Monaco
front discs. It requires upper and lower ball joint
bushings to be made to use the 75 spindle. I can bring
a copy of the directions to Carlisle. I also have one
extra set of bushings that could be use as a pattern
and have them made at the same machine shop. NAPA
carries the discs and brake pads.
