If it's fully rebuilt or has gears/locker, yeah. Otherwise, I'd say between 75 and 200.

You know the local salvage yard is littered with these right? i think they are $150 or so? And you can't just swap the discs alone anyway....

i found my sn95 rear discs minus pads for $70 at the salvage yard. i've yet to put them on though

don't waste your money, mustang up the rear! You'll get vented rear rotors, and a huge selection of pads and rotor upgrades to choice from than an explorer rear brakes.

Get the caliper brackets, anti-moan, calipers, and rotors.

Modify the caliper brackets like they do in this link:
http://vb.foureyedpride.com/showthread.php?t=71585

Or, you can buy the brackets with four holes if you don't like three holes. The modified brackets are about $150 depending on where you go.

Junkyard it up for under $100 for rear brakes and know what kind of condition your rear end is in. Or buy that $300 unknown condition axle and gamble.....seems like an easy choice to me.

If you go with the custom made brackets for ~$150, you can get the cobra rears brakes, which have a diameter of 11.65". They would match your front!!! lol
