    Rear disc pictures. *DUW*

    When i converted to rear discs i used the brake lines off the 94 Grand
    Marquis. The 92+ cars do not use a brake line on the axle,
    they instead run on the frame.

    The view in mine is simplified since i dont have a fuel tank.
    With a regular fuel tank routing of the lines might be tricky.

    Here is the drivers side. The upper line is the supply line, this goes into this
    "T" one outlet is a soft line that goes to the drivers side caliper,
    the third line crosses along the crossmember to the passenger side.
    The lines will bolt to the older frames, just have to drill two holes,
    remember to grab the mounting bolts off the donor car since they are
    self tapping screws.



    Here is looking over the axle from the rear to the passenger side.
    The block mounts the same way on this side, just two holes and a bolt.
    The line simply runs right to the caliper.




    The only fittings needed are 3/16" flare fittings.
    I got mine from the hard ware store. you also need a Legnth of brake line
    from the parts store i believe mine was about 3 feet.
    You need to take the fitting off the donor car that screws into
    the three way block. You then need to cut one end off the new brake line, slide the new fitting off install the donor fitting and install the line.
    Cut the end off the hline in the car where you want the lines to meet.
    I chose under the rear seat. Then you install the female parts of
    the flare fitting over both lines, then flare the lines.
    Add the junction and connect.

    the bolt in the floor is the rear seat bolt mount.

      Thats the standard set up from 92 an on. There is plenty of travel in the lines, as long as the shocks are installed the lines will not go tight.

        Seems pretty straight forward. Thanks for that, Duce. Can you throw in a list of all the other parts you used? Basically everything that will unbolt from each end, yes?

          I'd imagine so, but that doubles the failure points....Guess the real reason it was done was to facilitate the traction control and ABS...

              The backing plates, and calipers, Lines if you are going to use them. Buy new rotors and pads they are pretty cheap.

                Okay. I should be okay to reuse the inner "shoes", yes? They are only utilized for the parking brake, after all.

                        Assuming Grandma didn't drive with the parking brakes on they should be OK I'd think.
