- Improved brake pedal feel
If you’re looking for a way to make your old truck stop better and faster – and more reliably – you’ve found it.
Everything You Need
Every Lugnut4x4 brake kit includes all the parts you need to upgrade your old brake system – all you need are the appropriate tools, brake fluid, and a little elbow grease.
This Dana 44 axle brake upgrade kit is for 1976 to 1979 Ford trucks (8-lug axles only). A new and improved design, our kit now works with all known aftermarket knuckles including Crane Knuckles. Additionally, this kit uses a 1/8″ spacer bracket (included) that goes between the bracket and spindle.
NOTE: This kit will not work with OEM Ford Rotors
The kit includes:
- (2) 12.5″ standard 3/4 ton truck rotors
- (2) 3/8″ thick laser cut brackets
- (2) 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) Stainless steel banjo bolts
- (2) New inner hub/wheel seals
- Anti-rattle clips

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 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.
Kit includes instruction sheet and part number list, so that ordering replacement parts is easy. Anyone with a basic understanding of brake systems will find the installation simple.
