I need a front disc brake kit. I'm looking at a Willwood kit & a Strange Kit (see links below). Does anybody have any experience with either of these kits? Or maybe something else that you have experience with that you would recommend? My price range is $700 to $800. I can tell you that the $3500 Baer brake kit is OUT of the question (now saving my money for a Lenco....thanks Cale :D ). I already have a rear disc brake kit on the car so it will be disc brakes both front and rear.

Your experience and thoughts are most appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not sure what you are going to find in an aftermaket kit for that price. I am trying to see a wilwood 6 piston kit with 13 inch rotors and 5 lug spindles and hub rignt now and want more thant that. Your best bet for that price is probably the 96 and up cobra set up. It will bolt to your spindle if you have a 5 lug hub, it is only a 2 piston caliper, but it worked on the cobra so it should a decent set up.

Well I got impatient and bought the Strange kit. It was $100 cheaper and still had the 4 piston calipers. The Wilwood also said that it may affect the offset and I didn't want to find out something bad once I got it here. So the Strange disc brake kit will be going on next weekend. I appreciate the responses.
