Baer brake rear 5 lug swap?

So just finished a new Baer track kit swap on my 90 GT that I found on Craigslist. Getting a scraping sound from rear brakes. Visually I can't see a problem. Also using ranger axles from my previous 5 lug swap. Any body have experience with this swap? Thanks -J

Did you follow the Baer spec sheet for the adjustments of the rears between the caliper and the anchor plate ( minimum 0.030 and maximum 0.090)?

No I didn't, ( I didn't get any info with the kit) I've been trying to find it on line but no luck. So what's the best way to go about this? Put a washer between backing plate and caliper?
Thank you for info

This is the instruction sheet for the rear I got from Baer when I swapped from 4 lug to 5 lug.

Nice to see you again Paul.


And Almost Stock pretty much has every diagram and picture known to man that has to do with a fox body.

I'm going to check it out after work, thanks for posting this info. There definitely wasn't shims with the kit I bought, also the hub rings were missing too but I ordered them from Baer

IIRC (it was 15 yrs ago that I did mine) Baer didn't furnish any shims with the fit.

Rick I gave up retirement and went back to work so it's not often I get the time to post on the Mustang sites any more.

I've decided to make this Memorial Day weekend a 5 day weekend.

You know what they say about all work and no play.

I was able to adjust mine within the tolerances that Baer said without any shims.

Rotor is grinding on backside of caliber bracket. Should I take a Dremel and take out some material where it is rubbing?

I would try shimming it first before I thought about removing any material.

I would email Baer and ask them how to solve the problem.

So I emailed Baer, waiting to hear back. I took some measurements and compared them to that last instruction sheet that was put up. Click image for larger version

It appears my axle is about 1/4-3/8" short of the recommended 2&1/2"
Should I try to shim the caliper bracket off the axle flange that much or look into buying some new axles as the ones I have are from a junkyard 5 lug swap I did back in 02?

Oops, just re-read my last post, shimming intermediate bracket off of axle flange would have same effect as shimming caliper bracket off of intermediate bracket?.?.? It's been a long week... I'm gonna wait to hear back from Baer before I proceed any further

Baer got back to me and suggested clearancing the back of the caliper bracket where it attaches to axle flange plate. So I took the grinder to it and took off a bit of material. Bolted it back up and took it for a drive and all is well. Thank you everybody for your replies and info
