What's in the Box

Info

If you want to keep your original drum brakes on your favorite truck, we have you covered. The original came with ball-type wheel bearings and if you can find them, they are very expensive. Upgrading to modern tapered bearings is the only way to go. Tapered bearings disperse heat better and can deal with today’s grooved roads and modern wheels and tires much better than the original ball type.

  • Kit 916-31962 includes two new hubs, two inner and two outer wheel bearings, race, and two seals.

Can this kit be used with the 6-lug disc brake conversion kit?

These hubs are intended for use with the stock drum brake setup. Sorry we do not offer a 6 lug disc brake kit so it would depend on what disc brake conversion you plan on using. You may want to consult the manufacturer of the disc brake kit you plan to use to see if these conversion hubs are compatible.

Sorry this kit is only available in a 6 lug bolt pattern. We do offer a disc brake conversion in 5 on 4 ¾ bolt pattern which is part number 91031916. It will be an upgrade in braking as well as your desired bolt pattern.

These are 6 lug hubs that come with 7/16" studs to work with the original brake drums. They are not designed to have a rotor bolted to them and if looking for disc brake kits for the Chevy pickup we offer 91031916 in standard 5 bolt pattern.
