H Charlie; I was very impressed with the full kit . Very well done . JY Chouinard had told me he had good success too . So I followed his lead . At first I was tempted by the minimal kit, for 300F , but with deluxe kit all the running around is avoided , every part from wheel bearings, rotors , spindle adapters , even hoses fittings etc is included .. It may be several hundred dollars more than the ones you see advertised but worth every cent . The machined parts like spindle wheel bearing spacers / adapters are simply beautifully made ( spoken as engineer) . AAA++++ from me .
Buying another one for front of 57 dodge shortly .
While I know they can be made to work ok , total contact front brakes can drive you crazy . Perhaps best described as very innovative , effective , smart , but as a result fussy . And rust in drum after sitting over winter often causes dramatic lock up in spring due to the two leading shoes .. ( arrange so you back up , and brake first!) . Took me a while ( many years) to “get” that . You at first think brakes went bad over winter .
Plus maintenance / parts looking ahead. I find myself moving to front discs. Slowly . And silicone fluids.
