Post Ford 9" brakes

I have a Rolls Royce that I am installing on a GM frame. I have the large GM discs on the front(12") & a 9" rear w/11"x2" brake linings. Are the rear drum brakes sufficiant for a car that wts aprox 4400 lbs.(it wts 4800 now but, the Rolls motor is 400 lbs heavier than the rolls).......if required are their larger brakes drums I can install by changing the backing plates. thanks guys ,Don

Don, actually 11" brake is pretty big to begin with. I wouldn't worry about it because the rear brake only does about 10% of the braking.

just my 2 cents, disc brakes are better so if u want to upgrade, look for a rear disc set up. good luck & let us know what works for your project.

Go to your local ford dealer and tell them that you want the rear disc brake set up for a 97 Explorer I think the kit number you want is M2300-g it comes with everything you need to make it disc
