Will post the results of my front disc install when I get it done. Might be a little while. Right now I am getting ready to pull and replace the springs and check the ball joints. 1″ lowered springs from Detroit Spring are going back in. A little paint on the spindle… and then the disc brakes go on.

That Fairmont MC is much smaller than the generic GM MC that is sold with most kits and which requires more cutting. I believe another member used a S10 alum MC which fits nice and is smaller but the Fairmont MC fit well and is more period looking and has a deep pocket for the actuator shaft.
