The calipers bolt onto the spindle. There are also brake hoses that need to be removed using flare nut wrenches.

Why do you need to remove the calipers?


Currently 1965 220Sb, 2002 FORD Crown Vic Police Interceptor

Had 1965 220SEb, 1967 230S, 280SE 4.5, 300SE (W126), 420SEL


Not part of the in-crowd since 1952.
