  • Brakes: brake pads

    I'm getting ready to check the front brake pads on my 64 cruiser. the build sheet says I have disc brakes I wont know for sure until I pull the tires.if they are disc brakes I would like to be ready to replace them if needed. my question is this, I have had some ptoblems getting parts for the cruiser,is there a special part number I need? and were can I purchase them? rock auto has some Studebaker parts I do not know if they have brake parts. thanks in advance for any info. leonard

        Checking to see if you have disc brakes on your 64 is easy. Just look under the hood at the master cylinder. If it's a single your have disc's, dual & it's drum brakes.

                  Many sources, as GrumpyOne says they are available from rock auto but you need to use AVANTI not STUDEBAKER to find them. Also can always try 1963 Jaguar or XKE for listings--same pad and usually available in multiple quality/hardness choices.

                    If you want better stopping compound pads. Use EBC Green Stuff pads for a Jaguar. Be sure to check caliper clearances for free travel especially on the sides. Even with STOCK PADS as supplied by vendors you will NEED TO CHECK. If they are not NOS then they will need adjustment.
