This kit looks to be the same as

a kit sold by Tom's Offraod, A site dedicated to Early Broncos.
They have an excellent install video here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgaM3pgYoas&t=379s

At 2:28 of the video, they talk about bolting a bearing retainer on after bolting the caliper adapter on. My Bj kit says toss out the old bearing retainer, the bracket does the job. I'm puzzled and just want to make sure the retainer is not needed on my set up. To be honest I can't see how bolting the retainer on after the bracket would do anything useful.

I'm just trying to be thorough.

I don't have an answer for you but a few questions. You mention BJ's and Tom's Off-Road. Who provided the kit?

Does this setup somehow retain the parking brake?

This kit came from BJ's

Got mine through BJ's, yes it has a parking brake. I was looking for more precise directions on the internet and came across the Tomm's Offroad video of what appears to be the same kit. I don't know who manufactured it.

here is the video ,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgaM3pgYoas&t=384s
it's pretty good,. The written instructions from BJ's says get rid of the original bearing retainer as the new bracket serves the purpose. Tom's says to do something different.
Anyway I'm done, just need to bleed the system and test.
