Hi gang !

I am sure some among you could tell me if this kit could fit my 1958 Plymouth belvedere 4DRHT....

And with the stroke of the ENTER key (AND removal of the unnecessary html formatting BS, I've magically made that link ALIVE!

I'm pretty sure that it is not for you for several reasons.

"Mopar Chrysler Plymouth A body front power disc brake conversion 5 on 4 chrome" is not a 58 Plymouth.

Wrong bolt pattern and wrong geometry. Get one from:
https://scarebird.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=64&produc... (15" wheels required)
or http://www.aajbrakes.com (stock 14" wheels)
Willwood is another higher end option (15" wheels required)

It looks like Scarebird has changed the rotors and calipers to ones that work with 14 inch wheels.

We use 1977 Cordoba rotors (11-3/4", same wheel bolt pattern and pilot size) and 1985-89 Cadillac DeVille FWD front calipers. This kit will clear your OEM 14" rims.

On my '60 Plym I used '77 NYer spindles & a late '70s Ranchero 9" axle. Had ordered Aspen/Volare spindles from a guy, they wouldn't fit, but I'm not sure if he sent wrong ones or what, they were supposed to fit.
