9 inch ends and disk brake question

Have moser 9 inch ends welded onto my 8.8 for the longest time now and am trying to get ack into the mustang thing



someone refresh my memory what exactly it is that you have to get machined so that you can put the disk brakes back on the rear end. How much do you have to get it machined ect.all the info you have. Thanks.

I use the stock 8.8 rear disc mounting plates and machine the face to the depth of the bolt holes.

I used a set of Wilwood brackets and machined new holes to bolt up the stock calipers.

This is the best solution I have seen. Do you have a wilwood part number?

This has nothing to do with buying brakes. I was asking what bracket Bobtsgt modified to use Stock Brakes with a large new style ford end.

What is the brake spacing on the axle.

I have not been able to get anyone to build them with more that 2.50".

Actually the style of housing DOES have to do with brakes...

His post is a year old.

the conversion brake bracket is made by wilwood to match their brake caliper bolt pattern and offset mounting on to a stock "rectangle" bolt pattern on a 9 inch end...
some realignment is necessary depending on the exact "HAT" that holds the rotor.....

they also make a bracket to reuse the original ( 8.8"housings )brake caliper and mate it to a 9 inch end.

I have gone down the road that you are only now about to travel.
tires are the great equalizer
a degree wheel, EIGHT INCH dial caliper & adjustable pushrods should be just as normal as a 1/2" wrench in your toolbox
there aint no shortcuts to doing it RIGHT....

Is that something new? I can't find anything like that on their website.

That is a bracket that has been custom modified to work with an 8.8 brake caliper on a Late Big 9" end. I understood your post as they make a bracket specific to the stock 8.8 brake with a 9" end but that is not the case.

I have yet to find an off the shelf bracket that works with stock Gt caliper and a Late Big Ford End.

North Race Cars makes one for the old big style and small bearing ends, but not the late ford ends.
