Trailer disc brake kit includes 2 assemblies with e-coated rotors, hub spacers, calipers and mounting brackets. Assemblies fit 3,500-lb axles with 10" or 13" wheels. The 8" rotors feature a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.
Bearing, Race and Seal Information
More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes, and with good reason. Disc brakes deliver consistent braking - even at highway speeds - unlike drum brakes, which often show a substantial drop in braking torque at higher speeds. In addition, disc brakes offer a substantially shorter stopping distance than drum brakes.
Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, rather than the many found in drum brakes. This means that there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts to get damaged and fewer parts that will require repair or replacement, thus reducing maintenance costs.
Kodiak's slip-on, cast iron rotors work in conjunction with the included hub spacers to easily convert your idler axle to a disc brake axle. The hub spacers are designed to replace your standard idler hubs, and they come furnished with races and wheel bolts (bearings and seals are sold separately). Once the spacers are in place, the rotors can be slipped on. With a separate rotor and hub, you can easily repair or replace just one element of your brake system without having to junk the whole thing.
Kodiak calipers are constructed of cast iron to prevent flexing. Less flex means more braking torque, resulting in smooth, even braking every time. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel piston is 30 percent larger than standard pistons, ensuring shorter stopping distance and increased torque. In addition, the unique low-drag design of Kodiak's calipers allows the piston to retract farther than in most standard models, giving you a cooler-running brake.
Designed for axles with 4-bolt brake flange configurations, the included mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty ductile iron that is embossed to provide additional threading for guide bolts. The added thread strength ensures a tighter, more secure connection between the caliper and bracket. Another unique feature of Kodiak's brackets is the side-support angle, which guarantees that the load is carried by the bracket, rather than the bolts.
