I have an 8" rearend from a '72 Maverick under my Comet. I'm swapping out for 5 lug axle shafts, so I'm going to need to swap my brakes too. I already plan on doing a Granada disc swap to the front. Will 8.8" backing plates bolt up to my housing? That really make junkyard parts easier to find. Is the 7.5 rear Ford used in the '80s the same as the one they used in the sixties? My current rear brakes came from the original 7.5 axle that the car came with. I'd probably just keep them but they're so narrow I'm having zero luck finding drums that would work. If the '80s Ranger stuff would work it'd be nice as they have a finned drum on some models that would look nice and old fashioned speed part. If I wind up going with open wheels that'd be a little cooler than a smooth drum.
