I need to replace the rearend on my 84 and will be going with a GM 9 inch. I have fairly new brakes so was curious whether I can bolt the existing brakes, rotors, etc to this set up: https://www.quickperformance.com/QP-GM-1978-1987-G-Body-9-Inch-Housing-Axle-Package_p_63.html

Or do I need the complete reared package: https://www.quickperformance.com/9-Ford-Complete-Rearend-GM-G-Body-78-87_p_20384.html

Thanks!!!!

It's a Ford 9" , the rotors/calipers I have on mine are from a Ford Explorer. The axles are drilled 4.75 on 5 to run GM wheels.
I bought the whole kit unless you already have the gears and center carrier. GM brakes won't fit on a Ford axle.

I would suggest you buy the complete package. No parts to hunt around for. Just need to assemble it. There are videos online that show how to assemble a Quick Performance 9 inch. Good luck.

Yep, the rear comes in a bunch of boxes so it can ship UPS unassembled.
