Gonna pull everything out of the garage and try to organize better , between all of the boxes , tools and car parts , with more coming in I need to kick the nasty bug and cleaner up. When the parts come in I plan on doing some heavy cranking. I will mail my old 1 speaker dash pad out monday or tuesday to Dave at roseville it is nice no rust and has factory stickers on it so it should be easy for him to repad.  I still need to pick up some new rod bolts, a .484 cam and lifters, news springs and I will start assembling the 440.

Pulled the Cuda out of it's long winter nap, sanded the rear brake shoes (need axle seals) to keep em from grabbing, gave it a quickie tune up, drained the water out of the filter (got rid of a nasty surge I was having) took it for a test rip around the neighborhood and now it's ready for some summer action!

Challenger Comes out next, although I need to get some tires for the Charger so I can put the rallyes back on it

Clips and anti rattle springs won't be needed if you can get the shorter pins. Then you use disc brake pads that have the single slot.

Chrysler sold this as an upgrade replacement kit back in the 90's for OEM Kelsy Hayse disc brake set ups.
