Maverick/Granada rear brakes

I just bought a rear end out of a Maverick, with drum brakes. Is there a kit out there with all the hardware, springs, adjusters, parking brake etc?

I usually check Rock Auto for items and kits like this.

I looked on rock auto, and they have a couple of kits for each item. I was wondering if they had one master kit. I was hoping to not have to many, or not enough parts.

How much of a "kit" do you need? Speedway Motors sells kits like this.

You're probably going to be hard-pressed to find a kit that has the self adjuster lever and the link for the e-brake. Those aren't normal wear items that get replaced.

Now would be a good time to think about converting to disc.

To go along with what Joe posted....you may likely find that you can't buy a lesser kit without the drums and backing plates, then clean and paint your current backing plates and resurface your used drums for the same price as the full Speedway ready to go kit.

A lot of guys make this mistake..."Well, I've got a couple good pieces, I don't need the whole kit".... and find out later that the cost of having the drums turned, ect to get it all done and ready-to-go that they could have had the full kit of all new parts for the same or less money, or just a handful of dollars more....and not even had to mess with the old crap and putting it all together on the backing plate(sometimes a real half day hassle all by itself)….just toss the old in the scrap pile and bolt on the new.

8 " rear ?

Most later mavericks came with 8 in rears, early small 6 engine cars came with the smaller rears. The 8 have lots of common parts with Mustangs falcons fairlanes. the small ford forums have lots if interchange info/

Most all of the 9" parts interchange with the 8", as long as you pay attention to the axle bearing size and retainer plate/backing plate bolt pattern.
A lot of guys have replaced whole brake assembly's like the Speedway kit to get the bigger brake sizes that were on some of the 9" rears.

If the Maverick rear has the 9" brakes, pass on it. Look for a 10" drum rear unless you don't mind the hassle of changing backing plates & everything else over. Things like the parking brake link (goes from shoe to shoe) and the e-brake arms are available new.
