78/79 were the first years of the big bronco and the axle is shared with the same years of F-150. a handful of earlier years of F-150 had a near identical design. starting in 1980 the suspension design and that axle went bye-bye in the half-tons.

back the single bolt out.


there is a metal "shim" between the caliper and the mount. Use a hammer and a punch to drive the shim out.


once the shim is out you can remove the caliper.


clean the pieces with a wire wheel/brush before re-assemby. grease the shim with anti-seize or something to make next time easier.
