Project 10 The Hard Way – Rear axles and brakes to fill the 9″ Ford housing

A close-up of the Strange S/Series caliper and what the shims look like.

Caliper bracket attached to the rear end housing. The rear end housing cam with new t-bolts that make attaching the caliper trouble-free.

We opted for the 5/8" wheel stud option since we will see nothing but drag racing and the 5/8 studs are stronger. The 5/8" stud kit comes with "sleeves" to make the wheel a tight fit on the studs and eliminate the damage the threads can do to an aluminum wheel. A lot of guys leave these off but take two minutes and use them, it's worth it.
