Ford 9" disk brakes.

I've been lookin all over the board here, in all forms of search engines and whatnot recently trying to find the "formula" to get disk brakes on a 9" without having to buy those stupid currie spacer bearings, bolt on backing plates, or machining down the axle flange to fit in the rotor. However I have been unable to do so.
So I went out got a Brembo book of parts and went to work. After $498 in returns I found the combo that works.

First thing was using BTF (or any brand) 1/2 GM weld on brackets and '78 k10 GM 1/2 calipers. Then finding the correct rotor. This was the pain in the ass part. Trouble is finding a rotor with a wide inside register, but also with a very deep hat so the 1/2 ton caliper will fit inside a 15" rim. And the ONLY rotor that fits this description is a 2001 Dodge Ram1500 4wd front rotor.

Then i just used 3/16" hardlines and drilled out some front jeep brakelines so the GM banjo bolt would fit. All in all i went through 9 rotor combos trying to get this to work and was a major PITA.

*note: depending on what type of 9" you have, you may have to grind 1/8" out of the diamter of the caliper bracket before you weld it on.

And to think you could have just gone to TSM and gotten their kit. What's wrong with bolt-on backing plates?

Or you could have spent < $75 at the local pick and pull and grabbed some
'99 Ford Explorer rear disk brakes with the parking brakes built in. Depending on what bolt pattern you have which relates to what axle bearing you have (small, large Ford) you might have to modify the bracket a little, but if you are running 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern it will all bolt on.

Kind of worthless info without the bore size of your M/C!

Well true... i could have spent 300 and gotten a kit....


Or i could have spent $140, gotten large 1/2 ton calipers, huge vented rotors, and then post it up for other people to use since I have yet to see a person posting a rotor that has a deep and wide enough hat to use.

And i dont want using a bolt on bracket so i dont have to go to currie everytime i want to buy a special .100 wider bearing.

So for all you saying its not for you... shove off.

Had you presented a tech artcile instead of an "I am better that you " statement you might be further along in the karma scale than DUMBASS.
