Q & A

What's in the Box

Replace those old drum brakes with modern rear disc brakes. Steel rotor hat mounts .81" x 11-3/4" Pro-lite vented iron rotors and calipers to 3" tube rear end.  Complete with rotors, hats, calipers (7/16"-20 inlets), brackets, brake pads, caliper brackets and slider bolts. 

Hat fits 5 lug hubs with 4-1/2", 4-3/4", or 5" bolt circle.

Installation note: Due to a wide variation in daimeters of axle flanges and center hubs from manufacturers, it may be necessary to turn these diameters down to the proper dimensions.

don't use the inner clip on the brak pad

July 17, 2012
install by putting pads into calipers and onto the bracket, and do not use pad clip, or you cannot dissassemble caliper and pads once welded into place. I put the 'HAT and rotor' on the axle with 1 washer per stud between axle hub and 'HAT'. This will shift the caliper mounting position outboard by thickness of washer, giving a needed clearance for easy caliper removal and pad change. Once bracket is welded, remove washers between axle hub and 'hat', reassemble. The process is easy and they work great.
Pros:
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

too heavy

November 18, 2010
Brakes were too heavy to put on to my race car. I can't send them back as they weigh so much it would cost alot to ship back. So I will try to sell them for less than I paid.
Pros:
  • Quality was fine
No, I would not recommend this product.

A flexible brake line such as kit 6178563 or 6178562 will need to be used in order to allow the caliper to move freely. You can then connect your 3/16" hard lines to the adapter included in that brake line kit.

How do i determine the correct backspacing I am looking to put this on a 1967 C10 pickup. I am thinking that the 3" backspace would work but I am not sure. thanks Dave

The 3” backspace is probably the most common and location depends on the offset of the axle from the housing flange. For example if you have a 2 ½” axle offset from the backing plate mounting flange the 3” backspace would put the rotor inward approximately an additional ½”. Your caliper will straddle the rotor disc and you could compare this location to your wheel well of your pickup to determine location and clearance. If you are running a stock width housing on your pickup the 3” backspace should be fine.

Wilwood 120-10937 D52 Dual Piston Floater Caliper, 2 Piston/1.04 Disc
(Part #83512010937)
                        The D52 caliper is a direct bolt-on 2 piston replacement for the factory original single calipers on many 1968-96 GM Passenger Vehicles and Trucks. Forged billet aluminum bodies, stainless steel pistons, and competition style high-temperature seals put and end to the rust, bore pitting, and seal failures that plague the OE caliper design. D52 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 D52 brake pads and an OE 7/16-20 banjo bolt brake line. Calipers can be used with most wheels that clear the OE calipers. The front calipers with 2.00 piston provide 6.28 cubic inches of piston area per caliper, to maintain the original front to rear brake bias and use of the OE master cylinder. D52 Calipers come hardened slide pins.
