Has any one put Disc brakes on the rear of
a 68. Does anyone know how to to this, what all it envolves. I'm also looking into swaping out my front brakes with a Granada, but what all is envolved.
Thanks for any Help.

I don't have anything on the rear disks. Here are a couple of pages with good write ups on the Granada swap.

I put them on my 66 using a Granada rear and parts off a late model Lincoln Mark series. You'll need the discs, calipers and especially the mounting brackets. the bracket itself will not bolt up but if your housing has 3" tubes you can cut the bracket in half and weld it to the tube as I did. Email me if you need more info. [email protected] Ken
