rear brake brackets for a fox lenght axels

I have an 88gt with disc brakes in all 4 corners with stock lenght axels in the rear
I have a kit on the car that uses Turbo Coup caliper and rotors. I now have a five lug setup with rangers axels and I had the TC rotors drilled to match the 5 lug but I want to switch to a 94 setup using the same axels because the rotors are easier and cheaper to get but I need the brackets for this setup and the only one I can find is North racing and they want $150 for the kit is there anything eles out there for a better price.

I got my '94 rear kit from a guy who was parting out a car. I paid less than $200 for brackets ,calipers, rotors & pads. You can find deals like that all the time in any of the Mustang Forums. (Did you check www.stangnet.com?) The anti-moan brackets are brackets that mount to the caliper bracket and axle. On some '94 Mustangs the rear calipers would moan from vibrations when you would stop. So Ford added the Anit-moan brackets to keep them from making that sound.

Richard is the guy from North Racecars. Check out www.performancepartsinc.com for the anti-moan brackets. I needed them with my cobra brake kit I bought from north racecars.

94 Mustangs' axles are .75" longer to acomodate the brackets you're talking about. He mentioned in his first post that he wants to keep the Fox axles. Your solution won't work in that application. He would have to buy new axles.

Ooops my bad. Yeah you would have to switch to '94+ axles. But you can still find what you need pretty cheap just by digging around. The brackets you need for Fox length axles can be found from either a Thunderbird Turbo Coupe or the old Ford Motorsport rear disc conversion kit.

I don't think $150 isn't a bad deal for the rear brackets to keep the stock Fox lenght axles. It is pricey if you have to buy the axles and the rest of the brake components.

I am using the NC brackets along with fox-lenght 5-lug axles for a Cobra 11.65" rear disk setup. I want to keep the stock fox lenght so i can run 17x9 wheels out back.

Neither part is required. The anti-moan brackets are nice to have though.

He is using the proper length axles, not the slightly longer Mosers that you had. North Racercars also says in their instructions that you may need to slightly shim it with the washers that they provide.

When I installed mine one side was perfect and the other side I needed to use a washer per hole. He isnt going to need to fabricate spacers.

Nope, different rear setup due to the IRS. Only the calipers and rotors are the same as solid rear Cobras/Mach/Bullitts

yeah 1/16 of an inch equaled a 3/8th of spacer on each side. Just be prepared. I was also real impressed with Richards attitude towards my questions. After he says I'm just trashing his stuff and my axles are too long (1/16 of an inch compared right next to the stockers, pics don't lie.) he then tells me the brackets are made this way for people running different pinion depth?????

gary harris - I've the same rear disc set-up you have (I used the SSBC conversin kit) and was thinking the same as you while I'm in the process of going 5 lug. The thought of redrilling rotors all the time is not high on my list. However, I've found brand new, 5 lug rotors for our current set-up. They are sold through discbrakesrus.com. However, they are pricy at $140 a pair. But given the cost of the North Racecar brackets, plus the cost of the Cobra set up, etc., I think I'll pick up those rotors. I've about 10 years and something like 60 - 70K miles on my original rear rotors, so I don't think I'll need to change them out all the time like the fronts. By the way, discbrakesrus says these are 10.25" rotors and claim they fit the 93 cobra, SSBC and Turbo Coupe set-ups (which are supposed to be 10-11/64"). Just FYI

I have a very similar set-up. Putting together my rear end tomorrow using the NRC brackets for Cobra 11.65 disc brakes, 31 spline '03 CFiber clutch Trac-Loc, Moser 31spl Fox length axles. Richard was great and answered each e-mail promptly and shipped those things on an SR71 evidently. I'm in Ga, ordered them on Fri night, on my doorstep Monday morning. I'm running Konig 17x9's with 6" backspacing BTW. Sn95 axles were way out there with the 6" backspacing

Now I'm stressed about using the Moser axles

Gary, back in '96 I pieced a Cobra brake kit together for my '88 LX and recently switched from SN95 length axles to Fox length because I went from a 8" wide rim to a 9" wide rim and wanted the correct backspacing. I bought my new rear caliper brackets from North Race Cars as well and Richard was phenomenal. As others have stated, you may have to shim your calipers even with his brackets (I had to shim mine about .100") to locate them properly as there is seemingly a fairly loose tolerance on axle lengths. If you are still leaning toward running SN95 length axles, I have my old ones with ABS rings and ARP studs as well as the rear caliper mounting brackets that I'm going to sell (all parts are in great shape and were barely used as the car rarely sees 1000 miles/year). I do not have anti-moan braces though. PM me if you're interested. Either way, good luck with the project.
