    front or rear grandview ? i think the bridge bolts are 18mm and the cailper slides are
    13mm . make sure you lube them good ford is noted for sticky guides . i like to run them on the wire wheel . only tool that makes you life easier is twin cailper pistion tool . you can use a signal piston and large pair of channel locks in pinch .

    Update. Since so many guys leave us hanging.

    No real big problems, only one slider pin was rusted solid gave it heat.So all done.
