hope your gonna change those nasty axle bearing s and seals.Well, I was going to update last night, but carried away pulling things apart last night.
Went to the yard yesterday and got some parts.
Calipers, brackets and related off of a 2004. Master, booster, and dust shields off a '95.
Here's where things get a little strange.....
The anti-moan brackets on the left are off of the '95, the rusty ones on the right are off the '04. Hmm, which ones do I need....glad I got both sets.
I wanted to use the cleaner ones, but they wouldn't fit. The upper control arm bracket is in the way of the U-bolt. My luck, I had to use the rusty ones off the '04.
Still had to trim them to fit though.
Had to cut off about 3/4" so they would clear the bracket on the axle. The U-bolt went through the middle of the bracket and clears. (pic taken after blasting and powder-coating)
Here's where I am now
Caliper bracket attached just to get the anti-moan bracket in place.
You can see where the U-bolt goes through and If it wasn't cut, it would hit the lower control arm bracket.
For the main caliper brackets (ones attached to axle tube), I decided to use the switch and flip method. Cut an opening in the bracket to get them on the inside of the mounting flange and switch sides. This way I can retain the stock axles.
Got new calipers, rotors, pads, hoses, master cylinder and a '93 Cobra booster coming. Going to get a master without reservoir so I can use one from an Explorer or Ranger. They are just a rectangle reservoir with no angled top. I pulled one off a '97 Ranger and it fits the '95 Mustang master. Yep, all these are just for cores. There were no good parts there.
So far, this is pretty easy. (Once things got figured out with the help I've gotten). The hard part is going to be the parking brake. I was all set to pull a parking brake handle out of another car when a light came on. On the '84, the adjuster for the cable goes through the tunnel on the right side of the handle. On '87-up, it goes through on the left of the handle. Gonna have to dig into this more before I order cables or anything. Maybe next week I'll just grab a newer handle and see how I can modify it to work. If I used a '87-up handle, it would end up waaaay off center.
Oh, almost forgot, I did at least get the clip for the e-brake handle just in case I need one.
