Having made a successful run to South Bend it is clear to me that a brake upgrade is in order for my recently completed 64 Wagonaire.
The question I have is: Turner Brakes or the 12" SteelTech solution?
The SteelTech's are less money but what is the performance and ease of installation. I have spoken to a few folks with Turners solution and they seem pleased.
Where does the jury stand on this topic?

I just installed the Turner brake kit on my 64 Wagonaire..
I bought the "basic" kit and got all the other parts myself..
On the next Stude I install the kit on, I will purchase the whole kit..
The install was straight-forward and simple..
Everything worked as designed, and the car stops great!

My car was a six cyl car with the small brakes but now has a 259 v/8 in it..

I hope this doesn't come off in the wrong way~
I'd use the search feature at the top of the page.
There are a quite a few posts on this very topic.
Plan for some long reads and very opinionated comments, though!!!
The way I see it- Lots of folks have become tired of this topic, and may not comment any further then they did back then...

Good luck.

Well said, I should have searched first, just a little anxious.
Having searched, let this be the last post.
