front brake question

does anyone have an exploded diagram of the front brakes from a 99 and from 02. im trying to figure out which parts are interchangable or need changed to go from a 99 to 02

the ford diagram didnt do me any good, shows the same part numbers on rotors when i know they are diffrent

rotors and calipers are bigger on an 02(not sure what else) with having an 02 spindle on the 99 the caliper is not contacting the rotor properly

the 2 rotor options were
1. 10.28" O.D. rotor
2. 11.28" O.D. rotor

power slot uses the same rotors for 98 and up 2wd, and the brake pads are the same as well.

ok, on 4x2 XLTs, in 98-00 its a 10.28" O.D. rotor, and then in 01, they upgraded to a 11.28" O.D. rotor and bigger calipers, the brake pads might be a different part number, but ive had the brake pads of my 01 on my old 99

when you buy an aftermarket spindle lift, it seperates the 98-00 from the 01-06 because of the different rotor size, if you try and put a 98-00 spindle on a 01-05 you will have to downgrade the brakes to a 10.28rotor or else the caliper wont fit over it properly, however if you do the oppisite, you can get away without upgrading to a 11.28 rotor, but you wont have full contact with the rotor and pads
