12 Bolt Narrow with Moser Big Ford Ends
I noticed a thread that was from someone at this site regarding Moser big Ford bearing weld on ends. I'm in the process of narrowing a 12 bolt, and have found an issue with after market disc brake brackets. I have mini tubbed and have plenty of room for the 315-35x17's, but, with the Moser big Ford Bearing weld on ends, the caliper brackets may not fit over the diameter of the Ford bearings. Also, the flanges on the Moser ends are thicker than an original 12 bolt causing the location of the caliper to be mis aligned with the rotor.
I'm sure there are plenty of you who have mini tubbed, yet I can't seem to find anyone willing to share info on how to redo the rear seat base.
The method I came up with for mini tub is one that retains the stock fuel tank, moves the frame rails inboard 3" and I have even adapted an Art Morrison Triangulated 4bar with coil overs to the stock rails without changing the width of the rails at all, (those I have seen that cut them down to 1/8" are nuts in my opinion), for a total investment of around $1400.00 and 30 hours of engineering and labor, (and that includes all the AM Parts and brackets, including shocks and sway bar). All of this I would be willing to share either photos of, or I'm thinking of doing a Video of the narrowing and bracketry for the disc rear. So,...has anyone got pictures of their rear seat modification, or information on the modifications needed to correct the disc brake brackets?
