Ok, I'm really late to this party but in the interest of helping...I bought a 57 Chevy Disc Brake Conversion Kit from SSB around the time this thread was started - Unfortunately, they are GONE (2019) - I had no problems with their kit. I did get a list of the parts they used for just such an emergency, thankfully. I do not know if it extended the front tire track width nor do I care. It aligned well. The only "problem" was replacing the calipers with parts store calipers - I had to grind off a ridge on the top of the caliper.I have aluminum 14" wheels (OutlawII)
There conversion parts kit consists of -
Caliper and Rotor- 72 Chevelle
Seal Victor 46409
Pads 69-81 (Hawk -Delta 52
Hoses 69-71 Camaro
Bearings NA I assume they are the standard Chevrolet Chevelle bearings.
I also see how old this thread on the CPP 0 offset disc brake kit is just happened to run across it I bought this same kit in October of 2016 when I first bought my 56 hardtop the install was easy except for one problem junk bearings same problem inner bearing would not seat against the spindle replaced all with timken bearings problem solved but I contacted CPP explained what I found the fix & was told that they hadn’t ran into that problem before that’s is what really upsets me that they would continue to sell a product for that long a period without fixing a simple problem that might cost them a few dollars more for quality bearings This is the kind of problem that could cause someone to be seriously hurt if the person installing didn’t catch it I’ve bought lots of parts from CPP & will continue to but problems like this need to be addressed when they are pointed out & im sure I wasn’t the first to let CPP know the concern
I'm having issues with my CPP supposedly "bolt on" kit too on my 57. I too don't want the offset out either.
I had an older CPP bracket kit for 55-57 Chevy stock spindles laying around. So I ordered the 2700 kit that did not have the brackets or a master cylinder/booster. That did not fit at all. So my parts guy talked to CPP for the right bracket kit for my car and I bought the 5564DBK-V2 supposedly "2nd version" bracket but ended up being the EXACT SAME BRACKET AS I HAD. Now I'm stuck with a car without brakes.
