Is anyone running this combo? I’m looking to make this my final upgrade to the suspension and I seem to remember that they was an issue with the ball joint or some other clearance issue with the kit.

I’ve got the Dr. Diff 14.25” kit with a viper caliper.

Not sure about teh Andy F stuff, but Willwood, Baer and Stoptech in the 13"+ range work fine.

so buy different UCA's, that would give you the super big brakes and I am not impressed with hotchkiss stuff. I think that Heims are [censored] joints for steering. Tim

Are you calipers mount in the front or in the back?

The Hotchkis A-body arm have a wide turn in the rear and can interfere with some rear mounted calipers. I think E-body's don't do that.

I run this 15" setup. The calipers are rear mounted with Hotchkis arms.

A 15" brake with a wheel adapter eek?

Got to be more behind that story.


If you can't dazzle them with diamonds, don't waste your time, because nothing will

I need the spacers to run the Mustang bullitt wheels. I used them with the original disk setup as well. The brakes are from a 2015 Mustang. They were new take-offs that I bought on eBay for $300. I use the 15/16" power master cylinder. I have been running this setup for three years and it works great! At some point I would like to get new 18" wheels with the correct offset. But not today....
The grove in the rotor is just a scratch that occurred when I mocked everything up.

Mounted on the back! the rims were the year one rallye rims - The problem was the inside of the rim was rubbing against the top of the caliper...
