    Yes.

    I have 2 sets installed on both of my 1967 Nada 109

    They work great.

    Bud (AKA BoulderBtrett) installed both.

    We bought there shock plate for the front leaf springs. I run very large shocks. It moved angle back some distance, so the shock would not rub on part of the Forbyn brake Kit

    Blue has about 4,000 miles on its set

    Tan has about 15 miles total. Tan came home due to Bud house was in the fire zone...

    First time Bud drove Tan on the road with new brakes

    I run then on the front and rear

    Thanks, so you did have clearance issues with the front? I have read about Torrell, and Zues adaptation kits, this one was attractive due to the fact that I could still run 15 inch wheels. What other gear, )brake calipers) did you use?
    Cheers,
