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

LOL, they have a prepared answer to ever issue, “we have not seen that before” Every issue I have ever had that’s what they said.

That is the standard answer CPP, Danchuk and Ecklers all use. Anyone that is paying attention knows this and won't buy from them.
