Looking for the best disc brake set up. Right now I have manual drum brakes, and I want to keep the disc brakes manual as well. What is the over all best kit to go with and master cylinder to use. Just looking for mainly a street car 69 superbee, weight is about 3500lbs with a 4 speed.

Dr.Diff/Cass would be your best bet including the master to go with it.

I used Dr.Diff for my front brake conversion in my 69RR. Works great.

Drum to Disc with manual master.

Good advice, but the proper reply to your question is, "How much do you want to spend?"

I have used Dr. Diff for 3 disc brake conversions. Two of them were 13" front disc, but you have to go to 17" wheels with those. His prices are as good as I have found, but the main thing you get is service and hands on Mopar experience if you have any difficulties.

Buddy of mine used a Dr. Diff kit on his Barracuda. He is extremely happy with it.

I don't really have a price point, I'm just looking for a nice brake upgrade that I can run a 15inch wheel with. I don't want any cross drilled rotors or pro touring stuff.
