Rear Disc Brakes! No jokes this time.

Well I got them in and they work. I still have air in the lines though, I pumped a quarted of fluid through it and its still squishy, still drivable though.

All of it is off of a mustang. About the only modification I had to do besides cutting out the backing plates, is I had to use some precission eighth inch spacers between the backing plate and the caliper bracket. Also the little modification to the parking brake, I ran out of copper tube so I cut up my very first golf club to get it done. When I get back to school in the fall Im going to get on the lathe and turn down some aluminum adapters.

They are pretty nice. They area a hydrolic filled shock so they are nice in the summer, suck in the winter. Off road they arnt too bad, they have taken a few good jumps.
