Thank you very much for the information, the fact that rear discs from a 92 ish crown vic will fit is a HUGE bonus! I have the same axle flange as in the illustrations (medium bearing) and I plan on getting some donor car parts and give her a try. It looks pretty straight forward, but maybe alittle more info on the spacer you had to make and it's need/construction, other than that please keep me updated.

I got a set of rear brakes off a 93 crown vic police interceptor car, and it had 11 inch rear discs (bonus) and looks like it fill work fine. It is 5X4.5 wheel size and the backing plates look to fit with minor grinding. I'm still going to have to test fit it all to see what all this spacer stuff is all about, but should be great with 11 inch rotors all the way around.

P.S, Should I use the granada poportioning valve in the system, or just use a willwood adjustable valve for the rear.

What kind of car do you have and what type of brakes on the front? Usually, it is best to use an adjustable, especially when you don't have a pressure gauge or skid pad to play on.

I have a 63 fairlane with the granada discs up front and hopefully the crown vic 11 inch rears soon. I'm not sure about this spacer that takes up the space differences between the old drum backing plates and the thicker forgings on the discs? I guess I'll just have to fiqure it out by doing it!
