90 Mark VII 8.8 in Fox. Flipping calipers????
Ok I was at the JY and there was a 90 Mark VII sitting there. I knew they had a disc brake 8.8.Well I want to upgrade the 78 Z7 Zephyr I just got to an 8.8 with 5 lug, and disc brakes would be a plus. Mark VII rear is missimg dr. side axle and diff cover. No biggie as have diff cover at home and figure axle can't be to hard to find. I talked the guy into sellimg it to me for $75 and they pull it. Then I come home and read about how much longer the axles are per side and how it makes track width way wider in rear.. Then I read you can still get the dr side ranger axles or pass. aerostar and just flip the brakes on the Mark VII rear to have stock fox track width. What exactly are guys talking about when they say FLIP. Are they saying side per side, or side per side and flip calipers and brackets to front side of axle? Or just flip calipers to front side??? I still haven't picked the rearend up as they still had to pull it. Want to make sure I didn't screw myself and I can just get ranger/aerostar axles and flip the stuff. Just want to know exactly what FLIPPING the brakes means. Thx Chip
