I just bought and installed a standard drum to power disc conversion kit made by SSBC (Stainless Steel Brake Company) and sold by CJ Pony Parts. A stiff warning here, don’t expect any customer service or good advice from either of these terrible companies.
My kit was complete and very easy to install...but when I went to bleed the new calipers the left one would not bleed. Assuming some manufacturing defect I contacted CJ who immediately told me to call SSBC as they are the warrantor. SSBC would not return my calls, and I tried for about a week to reach someone, I believe his name was Tony—still no call back. Making a long story short, I disassembled the caliper myself, found some foreign matter that blocked the passageway to the bleeder screw and now it works just fine.
My warning to all is that SSBC is NOT a reputable company and couldn’t give a damn about customer service. As for CJ Pony, they were of no help and will never see my business again. Please be careful when dealing with either of these loser companies.
