Is there another brake line setup I can use instead of the ones provided by carrie?? Its been 3 weekend already and the parts haven't shipped. I contacted them and they said as soon as they get them they will ship them. If so where?? Any local auto stores??
If anyone needs caliper mounting bolts, I have some left over from when I did this. Brand new grade 10.9 bolts. The ones that mount the caliper to the bracket. I've got six, so thats four to use and two extra.
Great thread. I currently have the 28 spline axle, but plan on upgrading to an Explorer axle ('95 - 01'). I have several reasons for doing this but the main reason is strength. I have a truck camper and plan on a lift with quite a bit larger tires (35" or 37"). So I will need all the braking force possible for safe driving.
In the initial write up, close to the end, there was a link for a currie bracket for the 31 spline axles. Will this work with all the other parts in the write up for an Explorer axle? And Currie says the bracket is for a 'late model Torino big bearing housing'. What does this mean exactly?
I'm just trying to make sure the bracket will work.
Yes, I'm fully aware of that. That's why I'm swapping an Explorer axle into my truck. My truck currently has 10" drums and the Explorer has 10" disks. I'd like to install LARGER disk brakes though for more stopping power. I'm also trying to figure out how to put larger disks on the tront of my truck as well.
I live in a very mountainous region and want the extra security of stopping power and heat dissipation to relieve the overheating and 'brake fade' with larger tires and camper weight.
