I do not know anything about the kit you bought. But is does recommend 15" wheels. That's likely 'required'. But, as I said, I've no specific knowledge of the 'kit'.

Be prepared to change wheels and tires. Also, the wheel covers for a 14" wheel will not work with 15's.

Did you intend to also convert to front discs?

Power brakes can be 'added' to the drums w/o changing to front discs. If accomplished as GM did it, no 'other' changes are required.

Vendors sell front disc 'kits' for 14" wheels but they are based on Camero/Chevelle vehicle parts/weights (smaller rotors, for example). When GM went with front discs on the full size cars, the also changed to 15" wheels.

Just info.

Pete
