Awesome! Looks like I won't even bother to mess with the factory drums when it's time. Thanks for the link!

I did a write up over on Ford Muscle about how to use the very common Crown Victoria and the disc brakes off of its 8.8" axle on early Ford axles. Check it out!
does this setup work on any 8 inch rear , such as a maverick or just the mustang 8 inch? thanks for any replys

That's a nice article. What are the differences between the CV and the Explorer? Which would be more advantageous.
Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

The explorer setup can only be installed on large bearing or Torino style 9" axles. The Vic setup is for all small bearing setups 8" or 9"
