Default My 93 Ranger With Wilwood Brakes

When I changed the stock rims for the ones I have for now (17") back in 2001, the truck never stopped the same. That's when I knew I wanted big brakes for my truck. But unfortunately all of us know that Wilwood and other brake companies don't care about making big brakes for the rangers, except for revolutionbrakes.com they make kits for probably all the cars.

Anyways here are some pics of my brake project. As of now I can only do the rear side first, because I don't have the fron't rotors and brackets yet.
I should be getting them next week (Can't wait)


This is the kit that I bought. It has an internal parking brake.


This is my Ford 9+ rearend, axle removed


The parking brake and caliper bracket goes first


Then the axle goes in


I had to cut the OEM axle retainer and installed the wilwood retainer since the caliper bracket is thicker


Next, the rotor and the caliper are installed






And that's how it looks

this is the front caliper which is a lot bigger than the rear ones. Both front and rear calipers have 4 pistons.


I haven't tested them yet since I don't have the complete front kit and I don't have the back lines yet, and I need to flush the system also.

I will post pictures of the front kit as soon as I get them!
