Description

Converting the drum brakes on your Dana 60 axle to disc brakes has a lot of benefits:

  • Improved braking performance
  • Increased resistance to brake fade
  • Reduced un-sprung weight on the rear axle for a better ride
  • More clearance for wheels
  • Improved brake pedal feel
  • Easier brake maintenance

Whether you’re upgrading the drum brakes in your old pickup to disc, or adding disc brakes to an axle that’s going in a custom buggy, we’ve got you covered. This kit fits 1967-1985 Ford, 1968-1972 Chevy, 1972 & up Jeep, 1960-1993 Dodge, and 1994 & up Dodge rear axles (*8-lug axles only). Like all Lugnut4x4 kits, this kit clears 16″ wheels.

Every Lugnut4x4 disc brake conversion kit includes all the parts you need to convert your drum brakes to disc – all you need are the appropriate tools, brake fluid, and a little elbow grease.

The kit includes:

  • (2) GM 12.5″ standard 3/4 ton truck rotors
  • (2) 3/8″ thick laser cut brackets
  • (2) GM standard duty JB6 3/4 ton truck brake calipers with steel pistons. Heavy-duty JB7 caliper upgrades are available.
  • (2) caliper pins
  • (1) set of four high quality semi-metallic brake pads. Ceramic brake pads are available as an upgrade.
  • (4) copper washers
  • (2) steel banjo bolts
  • Anti-rattle clips
  • (2) flexible brake hoses, which can optionally be upgraded to braided stainless steel
  • All bolts are Grade 8, much stronger than the standard Grade 5 you find in most kits
  • (2) washers to act as spacers (if needed)

Please note that while mounting brackets are included in all our brake kits, our brackets are also sold individually here, and we can also provide longer braided stainless steel brake hoses here. To order this kit with the longer 18″ braided stainless, just order this kit with no hoses, and then add-on the 18″ hoses as a separate item.

Lift kits and hoses: Remember, the brake lines connect the caliper to the hard line on the axle. Since the hose does not go from the caliper to the frame, the amount of lift does not matter.

Interested in adding an emergency brake? If so, we offer calipers with integrated emergency brakes (just select that option above). This will give you a manual e-brake that hooks up to your cables.

Kit includes part number list so that ordering replacement parts is easy. Anyone with a basic understanding of brake systems will find the installation simple. Our only bit of advice: The rotor goes on the backside of the hub.

    I bought the Dana 60 rear brake conversion kit for my 1979 Ford F-250 2wd. This is a high-quality kit for a great price and super fast shipping! Easy to follow instruction, quality parts, and hardware! An easy to install brake conversion kit! Fantastic customer service, Shawn quickly answered all my question that I had. I’m very happy with the kit that I bought from Lugnut 4×4 and I’m happy that I bought it from them! I will always recommend Lugnut 4×4 for any brake conversion. 10 out of 10!
