Q & A

What's in the Box

This basic front disc brake conversion kit allows you to easily install '73-'77 GM mid-size 11" rotors (5 on 4-3/4") and '69-'77 mid-size GM single piston calipers onto your '37-'48 Ford passenger car style spindles. No machine work needed.

Kit includes:

  • 1973-77 GM brake brackets
  • 1973-77 hardware
  • Bearing and seal adapters
  • Seals
  • Inner bearing cups
  • Inner bearing cones
  • Spacers
  • Instructions
  • Does not include dust caps, washers or spindle nuts
Note: Not for use with bolt-on steering arms. The 11" rotor brake kits are great for street rods based on 1932-48 Fords. However these kits are much too large and heavy for a T-bucket or early roadster.

Simple and easy to install

December 07, 2010
I installed this brake kit on my 1948 Ford Coupe. It was very easy to install and the parts fit and finish are very good. You might need to look at how you want to finish the brackets if you decide to paint them. I found my brackets did not hold the paint very well and should have prepped them better. I plan to remove them and powder coat them soon.
Pros:
  • Simple instructions
  • Great fit and quality
  • Easy Installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

We apologize for the confusion but kit number 91631901 is meant to be used with spindles that have the cast on steering arms. Machine work would need to be done to the factory cast on steering arm spindles to enable using this kit and the bolt on arms. We offer kits 91031946 and also 91031942 for spindles that do not have the cast on arms with the same wheel bolt pattern.

Speedway 1928-1948 Ford Forged Spindles Only
(Part #91632104)
                        

These Speedway spindles are a one piece, drop forged design constructed of high strength 4140 steel, which makes them superior to original components. These spindles are modeled after the '37-'41 round-back design and use '37-'41 Ford kingpins. They  fit Ford axles from '28-'48 and can be used with period correct drum brakes or modern Speedway Motors disc brakes, but will not work with hubs from '28-'36.

  • Uses 1937-1941 kingpin kit
  • For Ford axles 1928-1948
  • Will not work with 1928-1936 Hubs

Be sure to include our kingpin kit (91032121) with these spindles.

Spindles also available in kit form with Standard or Deluxe kingpins.

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.
