Here is the question? Rule change will now let us run 9" ford with disc brakes on metric car.Should I even worry about finding a rear end with disc brakes.or should I just run the drums that are on it?

I have the brackets,from when we used to narrow rear ends,for drag and pro street cars.I just was not sure if it was worth it for a stock class?

Like 17j said the discs are a far better braking system than the drums plus the discs are lighter. Eddie

Check out Speedway and JR Motorsports (web sites) Jacks. They can hook you up with parts or complete kits.
