There are no federal standards for replacement automotive friction materials. When you buy brakes, you’re buying the standards of a company along with the good will and respect earned by a brand name manufacturer.

Raybestos has stood for quality in braking since 1902 and they are the exclusive supplier to Early Classic for calipers, friction and master cylinders in every kit we sell. While others in the industry choose foreign suppliers for their parts, our company philosophy has always been American-Made quality and dependability over foreign-made cost savings, insuring our customers trouble free braking for years to come.

Raybestos is so sure of their commitment to quality that they extend a limited lifetime warranty on their brake products. Ask your Early Classic salesperson for complete details.

One word of caution when shopping for brakes: Half-ton trucks require Half-ton brakes! General Motors engineered the '71 and newer C-10 trucks with a much larger disc brake spindle that utilizes a 12" brake rotor, along with much larger diameter wheel bearings. Although it’s possible to adapt smaller passenger car parts to fit onto the stock drum brake spindle, you will never achieve the proper stopping power using these types of components on a C-10 truck. We’ve designed every Early Classic Spindle to accept standard GM ½ ton brake components, so replacement parts are readily available at your local auto parts store.

Every Kit Comes Complete With Master Cylinder, Proportioning Valve, Brake Lines, Brake Hoses, Calipers, Pads, Rotors, Bearings, Seals, Dust Shields, Dust Caps, Castle Nuts, Slotted Washers, Banjo Bolts, and All necessary Hardware and Brackets.(MAY NOT WORK WITH ORIGINAL '60-'70 STOCK WHEELS)

One of the biggest improvements GM ever made was upgrading the truck braking systems to disc in '71. Prior to that, we were stuck with front drum brakes that, quite frankly, left much to be desired when it came time to stop. By design, drum brakes do not dissipate heat well, and heat is the enemy of your brake system. Disc brakes, on the other hand are open to the cooling air that flows under the vehicle, allowing heat to transfer and the system to operate at a lower temperature. When you compare the piston size of a disc brake caliper to the bore size of a drum brake wheel cylinder, you immediately realize why disc brakes should be first on every classic truck owners list.

Knowing this great need for brake improvement, it’s easy to see why there are so many choices when it comes to upgrade kits on the market today.

We suggest that prospective buyers arm themselves with as much information as possible when shopping for their project. The most important questions to ask of anyone selling a disc brake conversion kit: Compatibility, quality and completeness. Are all of the components a matched system, and are they truck brake components? Who manufactures the components, and are they made here in the United States? New or rebuilt? How complete is the kit, and what else would you need to purchase in order to install it on your truck?

Asking these questions will let you know how knowledgeable and helpful the salesperson is and a lot about the company you’re dealing with. Most importantly, they will help you decide which kit is best suited for your needs.
