Q & A

What's in the Box

If you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a rear disc brake kit and still have to weld the bracket on, we've got you covered. This kit includes bolt-on caliper brackets, 11-1/4" vented rotors, '78-'88 GM metric style calipers, brake pads and hardware.

  • Fits both 5 on 4-1/2" and 5 on 4-3/4" bolt circles
  • For Ford passenger car axles ONLY 
  • Fits axle with maximum flange diameter of 6-1/4" O.D.
  • For 15" and larger wheel applications ONLY

NOTE: This bolt on brake kit is designed to be used on 8" and 9" housings using 3/8" retaining bolts. If you want to use it on a 9" housing with 1/2" bolts, you will need to use the 3/8" hardware to do so. Fits "old" and "new" style big bearing (3.150" bearing O.D.) Ford housings and with axle offsets of a minimum 2-3/8" to 2-1/2".

Application

  • "Old-style" big bearing 9" Ford axle
  • "New-style" big bearing 9" Ford axle
  • 8" Ford axle
  • Axle housings with minimum axle offsets of 2-3/8" to 2-1/2"

This kit will NOT work on pickup housings or the 50's 9" housings as they only have about 2" backspace. The exception would be the late 50's station wagon rear ends.

When using with a Currie Axle with an o/d register of  2.795", the rotor is included in this kit with an i/d register of 2.78" and therefore will need to be machined by increasing the hole diameter in the rotor to match the Currie axle spec of 2.795"

Wilwood 120-11874-BK D154 Dual Piston Floater Caliper, Black
SKU-83512011874BK
                        Wilwood's D154 forged billet caliper is a direct bolt-on, lightweight, high-strength, extreme duty alternative to the OE cast iron calipers that were used on a wide range of factory disc brake equipped mid size GM cars and small trucks beginning in 1978. Use of this caliper can still be found on some GM models as late as the year 2002. The wide spread and affordable availability of D154 calipers and brake pad compounds also made it a popular choice in a number of restricted class competition categories and drum to disc conversions on all types of hot rods and street machines. There are three piston configurations available for the D154: A large 2.50" single piston, and two two-piston models featuring 1.62/1.62" or 1.12/1.12" pistons. All three calipers utilize stainless steel pistons. Stainless pistons are used to resist corrosion and retard heat transfer from the pads into the caliper body. High temperature, square faced bore seals are used to provide controlled piston retraction and reliable performance from the wider sealing face. This combination of components is a proven performer with long service life and a history of reliable performance in any type of driving environment, including extreme sustained high temperature racing applications. The caliper slide pin holes are fitted with dampening rings to minimize noise from vibration. The caliper is also fitted with bleed screws on both ends to facilitate mounting in any left hand or right hand, front leading mount, or rear trailing mount locations.

Wilwood 140-12101-BK D154 Rear Caliper Kit, 1.12 Piston/1.04 Rotor
SKU-83514012101BK
                        Wilwood's D154 Rear Caliper Kit offers a matching rear replacement option for our front D154 calipers. It is a direct bolt-on 2-piston replacement for the factory original single piston "Metric" calipers used on many custom application rears. With the added benefit of smaller rear piston sizing (1.96 sq-inches of area) not normally available in OEM calipers, for correct front and rear bias. Forged billet aluminum bodies, stainless steel pistons, and competition style high-temperature seals put an end to the rust, bore pitting, and seal failures that plague the OE caliper design. D154 calipers provide low-maintenance performance and a huge weight savings with high temperature reliability for the street and track. D52 calipers mount in the stock location over stock rotors; use the original style OE D154 brake pads and an OE M10-1.5 banjo bolt brake line mounting. Calipers can be used with most wheels that clear the OE calipers. Kits contain Wilwood's hardened slide pins and BP-10 high friction pads.

Wilwood 290-0632 570 Brake Fluid, 12 oz Bottle
SKU-8352900632
                        

Wilwood's specially formulated Hi-Temp 570° Racing Brake Fluid has a minimum 570 degree dry boiling point to withstand the severe heat requirements of automotive racing. Hi-Temp 570's low viscosity allows easy bleeding of your brake system, eliminating aeration of the brake fluid caused by foaming due to excessive pumping of the pedal. 

This high temp brake fluid comes in a convenient 12 ounce container hermetically sealed to guarantee against unwanted absorption of moisture which can drastically lower the fluids boiling point (fluid from larger containers tends to become contaminated with moisture, lowering its boiling point and making it unsuitable for racing applications). 

  • Dry Boiling Point:  573° F
  • Wet Boiling Point:  313° F
