Jim,Cheers from Down Under Australia,
Thank you very much Scott for your Baer brake install tutorial and photos!!! Awesome!!!
Hoping you can help me with a query. If you are kind enough to help, that will be super! I'm a bit of a novice but love to learn and do what I can myself. I have a 69 chevelle with T4 Fronts and SS4 REARS.
I recently purchaced ( from USA ) the rear backing plates with actuators and e brakes assembly as all the emergency brake componets are not on my current backing plates. I'd like to install and get the E brake working with minimal fuss and work and would prefer not to drop the rear c clips and remove axles.
My question is: can I remove the actuator and bits from new backing plates, drop the calipers, remove rotors and install all the brake components on existing backing plates without droping axles???? or am I best to replace the whole assembly and plates the long process?? Sorry for the lame question
Sorry for the late reply I just seen this now while I was looking for some other stuff... The answer is it's not recommended simply because BAER brakes are designed around their backing plate to center the rotor to the caliper properly..
