Frequently Asked Questions
I was looking at your rear brake kits for my 64 Galaxie with a small bearing 9". Is the axle flange to housing end the same distance on all 9" rear ends of that era?
Mustang Steve brake brackets are designed for a 2-1/2” brake gap. I am not 100% certain if the 1964 9” has that size gap, but it is easy to measure. Simply measure from the mounting flange outer surface on the axle HOUSING to the mounting flange outer surface on the AXLE, with the drum removed. You also may experience that the stub axle, where the brake drum or brake rotor would index on the axle, might be shorter than later versions. If that is the case, you might want to weld one of the rotor centering rings to the existing stub axle to lengthen it where the rotor will be perfectly centered. I am thinking the 64 will have the large 3.150” diameter bearing, so make sure prior to ordering to determine if you need the small bearing or the large bearing kit.
