Well, a simple bolt-on is to pull the disc brakes from a '68 (or '69). Are you looking for new stuff?

Dan, I had a four drum '68 fastback that was upgraded with '69 front discs. I went with the single piston calipers for ease of rebuilding, (had them done locally, not shipped to stainless steel brake corp.) It was simply a matter of swapping spindle assemblies and using the distribution block, proportioning valve and master cylinder off the same car. I remember getting new tie-rods, but I don't recall if it was because the originals were worn or there was a size conflict. As for putting discs on a '69, I guess the '75-80 Granada set-up would be the way to go. If you are building a tricked out muscle car, the aftermarket guys have plenty of more costly alternatives.Hope this helps, Charlie

The 68 and 69 disc brake assemblies are identical. That is suspension wise! The drum spindles will not work unless you find some kind of after market retrofit type.
