Hi all- new to the site and already have questions! I’ve had a mustang for quite some time and recently decided to upgrade some of the safety related components of the car. I purchased front and rear Wilwood brakes and read through the instructions and feel like I’ve hit a road block. It appears that I need to deconstruct the rear axle shaft, remove the original axle flange, and remove the rear hub and lugs. Anyone out there done this before? I’d call but the tech support is not very helpful as I experienced just getting part numbers...

Thanks!

My guess is that the caliper mounting brackets also serve as the axle retainer. To install them you will need to remove the axles, remove the bearings, remove the stamped sheet metal axle retainers and replace them with the new parts. May as well install new bearings since you've gone this far but you can reuse the old bearings but you must use new lock rings.

We'd be better able to help you if we knew what you have to start with and whet your new kit has. If you can post a couple of pics, it would help a lot.
