      So they do make kits that fit in a 15 inch rim wheel well. smallest on a dart is 16. obviously wilwoods are expensive but there are kits out there small enough, just have to find one that fits on the rear hub.

      Good to know! Who knows - even if I can't find one, someone may make one. Or someone will mix and match parts - I know a guy who took hoses, calipers, discs and a new parking brake setup from all over the place for an old AMC Rambler rear brake conversion. Here's hoping!

      Well plan of attack if you want to do this probably would be:
      1. Find cars that have the setup you want.
      2. see if the cars come stock with 16 inch rims
      3. see if the bolt pattern matches ( i think this is where the real problem will be )
      4. compare rear spindle/hubs for bracket mfg or mounting locations
      5. R&D parts

      you could also go and get a caliper out of a junkyard and rebuild it and have a spare.
      That design makes my eyes hurt! LOL This is the Dart forum and not the Toyota forum so to Off Topic it should go.

      Do you realize how hypocritical this post sounds??? You bring up you VW all the time and no one gives you shit for it... let people do what they think will look good and dont give them shit because you dont agree that it looks good.

      Right moving on from those last 2 posts and back on topic,oh wait it never was off topic to begin with,

      the more i think about it the bolt pattern will not matter it will be more of a clearance issue really inside the rim. Plus have to take into account pad size want to try to keep that stock and jam a parking brake in there it may not all fit without a bigger rotor.

      Does anyone know the braking proportion front to rear on the dart? 75 /25? 60/40?
