Hi,
I have almost reached the end of my 1968 Cougar restoration project, but I'm not happy with the front and rear drum brakes.

I've found this interesting Hydraulic Brake Booster:
http://www.cougarbrakeparts.com/products.asp?cat=15

Has anyone tried out one of these, or something similar?
How do I connect it with the power steering pump?

And what about the company selling them, Superior Automotive Products Inc, are the trustworthy?


I've also found this interesting Drum to Disc Brake Conversion kit:
http://www.superiormustangparts.com/proddetail.asp?prod=frontrearbrakeconversion

It has a very nice price, but is it any good?
The company selling this Conversion Kit seems to be the same as the one selling the Hydraulic Brake Booster. But is it realible?

Thanks in advance!!

Well i have no experience with either of those companys, but when i did my drum to disc convertion, i got a kit from John @ http://www.cascadeclassics.com/ and i was very pleased with price, fitment, how easy it was to install, and the excellent service John provides for his customers

Hydroboost brakes are awesome. I did an install on my 1966 Bronco and couldnt be happier, the brakes are amazing. You could piece together your own setup much cheaper than what that website is asking for. For my Bronco, I have maybe $200 total, thats including custom built hydraulic lines to go from the PS pump to the Hydrobooster and ps box.
A very popular hydrobooster is from a Chevy astrovan, also ford superduty and even newer mustangs use it. See them on ebay all the time.
