ss lines are def a good addition while you are in there. u def want to replace your power booster and master cylinder with the matching year that you choose for brakes. also a proportioning valve would be needed. let me get the links that i used, they give u step by step directions. mike

What are your goals? A good street car? Or a road course monster? Makes a big differance on what parts to use.

i used all sn95 parts from the junkyard. at the time i was rebuilding my rearend so when i replaced my axles i went 5 -lug with a mounting plate for th rear disc. everything else including the spindles were from the sn95. hope this helped mike

This would be a start
http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/MM-BP1

You can also get some SVO calipers with the 73mm steel piston for like $15 a pop from advance. Stock 5.0's are only 60 mm .

Then use these on the calipers
http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/MM-MMSSCS

and these to use the pads in the first kit on the SVO calipers
http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...attle-Clip-Kit


So for about $350 you can have better than stock braking power.
