I am in the process of 'building' my
brake system. Currently I am using the original
front disk brakes but I have
purchased a Wilwood pro-street rear brake kit. I've installed
a Wilwood master cylinder &
proportioning valve along with a Hurst line-lock and
braided stainless steel line kit.
I have installed the new rear brakes with my own designed and
fabricated mounting brackets. The
brackets that came with the kit were not designed
to work with c-clip eliminators.
The cutout in the top of the bracket design to allow installation
without removing the axles.
Installation of the c-clip eliminators require that the end of the
housing be cut off (the section
that extends beyond the flange, and contains the original axle
The c-clip eliminator assembly must then
be sealed to the axle housing flange
to prevent leakage
of rear end oil. The Wilwood brake
mounting flange gets sandwiched between
eliminator and the housing flange and
thus must be sealed as well.
