Re: Needing advice on brakes
Manual brakes are fine for every application except for granny who doesn't have enough leg muscle to push the pedal down. In fact, I personally think manual brakes are easier to modulate and control the car than power assisted brakes are.
Granada front discs and there are lots of rear disc choices. I ran Explorer 8.8 rear discs. They worked good. Exactly the same as the M2300 Ford Racing kit that I believe is now discontinued. Pretty much just bolts on with the exception of the park brake cables-which I never messed with. I've also run GM S-10/Sonoma 4x4 front discs on the rear...works great, but no park brake and had to re-drill the rotors which is really easy to do if you have an old axle laying around. Currently using Aerospace 4 piston kit...which I will not buy again due to their poor customer service. They are light and pretty though.
