9″ hydraulic braked axles are very simple to install. Attached the Hydraulic backing plates to a weld ring, welded to the rear of the axle shoulder.
The hardest part of the entire job is to align the weld rings perfectly.
We recommend customers dry-fit the backing plates and weld ring, without grease. Once the drum is in position and locked with the axle nut, tighten the brake shoes.
Align the backing perfectly with the drum and then spot weld the ring in 4 places. Re-adjust where necessary and then finished the welding on the ring.
