Eric,

I purchased my 4 wheel disc conversion package from Direct Fit Brakes.

Some things to consider when doing this conversion would be to change all bushings front and rear, upper and lower ball joints as well as the bearings and seals in the differential. You will have to pull the axles to remove the rear drum backing plates.

Any questions feel free to ask, Beautiful GTO!

Hey Eric!
The car looks great!
Don't know if you have a copy, but first on your list should be picking up the GTO Restoration Guide. Tons of info and useful diagrams.
As far as the disc brake conversion, another place to check out would be PST,
Performance Suspension Technology

I bought all my poly suspension stuff from them and they are a good company to work with.

Have a great time with is. Glad you found something to stir your soul! :cool

Russ :cheers

Nice car Eric. I put on disc brakes from Stainless Steel Brake Company (SSBC). They have several options and were very helpful when I told them what I wanted to do as far as wheels. As mentioned earlier, you might as well replace anything in your front end that looks worn.

Very, very nice car. I was watching that one on EBay last week. It didn't sell - you must have really worked the seller over after the sale. Congrats!!!

Officially it's the Tiger, at least that's the animal that was in some of the adds way back when. We all know that the true animal of the GTO is the Goat. Never hurts to throw in a little of the demonic...:eek:

The raccoon is my friend. I found him when he was a baby (mother killed by a car). I raised him until he was fully grown (35 lbs)...He now lives in a near by State Park. His name is Russell, be nice to him or he will nest in your garage....Be afraid, be very afraid.......
