Brake Parts
We can supply nearly all brake parts and have others planned for reproductions. Be sure to check this whole section. Brakes are important! A brake job
often leads to more parts as you find more problems. We have indicated parts you should consider. Drums should always be turned with new shoes for
maximum performance and wear (see page 142).
BRAKE TOOLS: Some make it easier and safer – See page 332.

62-64 Convertible Special Front Springs: We've had several customers say they never load the trunk and only have 2 people in the car, but
want the car to look basically level when empty. We now have springs that make the front ½–¾" lower than the stock springs when empty. The car may
appear just slightly low with 50 lbs. in the trunk and 2 people in the car. C1659RL 6 lbs. ea.

Early HD Springs: Unless you have a specific reason, we do not normally suggest the HD springs for the 1960-64 Cars & Wagons. They do not
lower the car! They do make for a stiff ride and often a higher ride. They also tend to make the rear wheels tilt out too much at the top making the tires
ride too much on the outer section of the tread.
LIGHT DUTY REAR FC SPRINGS
The original rear springs (& our rear springs) were designed for a load of people & cargo of 1700-1900 lbs. Some owners have said that they have no
plans to carry more than a couple of passengers and therefore, do not need a spring that will handle that weight capacity. We now offer rear springs that
are a little shorter and allow the tires of an empty FC to ride more perpendicular to the road. FC may appear 1/4" low if front is high (fronts tend to ride
a little high to allow for 3 passengers and a load right behind the cab). 61-65 FC rear "Light Duty" Springs C1662A 10 lbs. ea
