    This should without a doubt be a sticky. Thanks for everything being very clear.

    What size rims are on the rear of your car. Looks like you have lots of room with the new setup.

    I just ordered the 70-74 rear disc kit and I couldnt find any mention on their site of having to swap out the master cylinder or proportioning valve. Now ive ordered the kit Im worried I will have to place another order for a master cylinder and prop valve. Do they have to be changed? Right Stuff make no mention of it at all.

    From what I know you have two choices:
    1. Buy an adjustable proportion valve to get the bite right
    2. Buy the matching master cylinder and proportion valve

    I did the 2nd option because I can buy replacement parts at any autozone, pep boy, etc.

    caliper adjustment

    Nice write up on the install. How are the rears feeling after 6 months of driving? Are the calipers staying adjusted? These calipers rely on the E brake system to keep the pistons adjusted, if I recall correctly.

    No issues at all ... I absolutely love them ... the car has much better breaking characteristics.

    As for the adjustment; I have a manual transmission so I do use my emergency brake a lot therefore I have had not to make any special adjustments to the brakes since the install.
