Has anyone used these guys for their rear disk kits? I was thinking of getting their large kit.

I have the same setup on my 8" in my '69 mustang.
If I had to do it over again, I would go with the wilwoods with the parking brake shoes inside the rotor hub.
The Eldo calipers are a real B*tch to bleed.

I had those on my car for awhile and wasn't satisfied. You MUST use the parking brake regularly in order to keep the rear brakes adjusted. But even when you do, there is a spring which may begin to get weaker and the brakes never properly adjust.

I have reverted to 10" x 2 1/4" Granada drums for now, but eventually will upgrade to Explorer discs with the internal parking brake. Cheaper, better.
