Video Transcript for Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads with Stainless Steel Backing Plate Installation

Today, we'll be having a look at the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads with stainless steel backing plate. They are for 3,500 to 6,000 pound axles. Their part number, K225CPSS. Let's go over a couple neat features of these brake pads. They are a carbon ceramic, which allow them to withstand high temperatures, and maintain their strength and integrity for longer than either NAO . Which is Non-Asbestos Organic brake pads .. Or semi-metallic models.

They're great for saltwater applications, because they have a nice stainless steel backing plate here, which will help resist corrosion. They withstood a 196 hour salt spray test. These will produce less brake dust than non-asbestos organic or semi-metallic models. They're champered 00:00:49 to prevent brake squeal. They'll last up to twice as long as traditional organic pads. These come in a set of four pads, so you'll be able to replace on axle on your trailer.

They are made here in the USA. Now, we're gonna go ahead and start installing the brakes on the right side of our trailer. First, let's go ahead and chock 00:01:09 the wheel on the left side. That way, the trailer doesn't move any on us while we jack it up. Now, we're going to go ahead and jack up the axle on the right hand side of the trailer, making sure we're as close to the spring as we possibly can get. That way, we don't risk bending the axle. Okay, with the tire off the ground, lets go ahead and remove it. All right, let's go ahead and take the wheel off, set it aside out of the way for now.

Now that we have our wheel removed, we have access to our brake caliper. We need to take this off to get access to the brake pads. This particular caliper uses as 13 mm bolt. Your application may vary. Let's go ahead, take the bolt out.

Just one on the top, one on the bottom. Okay, now with bolts removed, pop the caliper off. We can remove our brake pads. Start with the outer one first, just kind of pop it out. The inner one has clip that holds it inside a piston in the brake caliper. Now, with a quick comparison of our new brake pad compared to our old, you can see the new one is a little bit thicker than the old brake pad. In order to get both brake pads over the rotor here, we're going to have to press on the piston on the brake caliper. Now, there's a couple different ways to do this, but the easiest way that I know of with standard tools that everybody will have at their house . Go ahead and stick the old brake pad back in, then you can use a pair of vice grips or channel lock pliers, or something, and squeeze the brake pad against the back of the caliper here. Let's go ahead and do that, and we'll get it pressed in. If you're using vice grips, you're probably going to have to adjust them a few different times in order to get them to squeeze down all the way. Okay, with that done, so you can see, we got the piston flush with the outer edge of the caliper. Now, we can get our new brake pads on there. Go ahead and slide the caliper back over the rotor. Now, let's go ahead and install our new brake pad on the inboard side of the caliper. You can see there's a clip here, which will help secure it into the piston, and then there's these two guide tabs here, which will stick out through the hole in the caliper. Just stick it down through there. You may need to bend the tab a little bit to get it to go in. Now, for the outboard brake pad, there's this plate here, which will rest in the groove of the caliper. These two pins, which will go through this hole. Go ahead and insert it like so. Then we will do something called staking the brake pads, which will help lock it in place to the caliper, on the outside, with those pins, once we have the caliper back installed. Let's go ahead and do that. In this application, I'm going to have to stick the bottom bolt in here first, just because of the clearance with the axle and the leaf spring. You may have to wiggle on the caliper a bit, in order to get the bolts to start. All right, got that one started, and that one's already started. Let's go ahead and tighten them up. With out 13 mm wrench again. Okay, with our caliper secure, let's go ahead and stake those brake pads, like I said earlier. There's a couple different way of doing this. You can do it with a pair of channel locks, or a punch and a hammer. Bend the tab down and back. It might take a couple of times doing it. Okay, that's actually secure enough right now, even though it does move in and out a little bit . But it's not moving back and forth, side to side. Once the caliper compresses down on the brake pads, it'll hold it in place against the rotor, and it'll be nice and secure. The reason we stake them like that is to keep them from moving side to side and back and forth, so you don't have to have any annoying brake squeal. Now, with the caliper securely mounted, and the outboard pads staked to the caliper, we can go ahead and put a wheel back on, and torque down the wheel. We'll go ahead and move on to the other side, and do the same thing over there. Start by getting our lug nuts on a few threads. We'll tighten them down with our impact. Making sure we go in a criss-crossing star pattern. Now, with the wheel tightened, we'll lower the axle on down, and then we'll torque the wheel to manufacturer specifications for the trailer, and we'll move our jack. Now, we'll just lower the wheel enough so it touches the ground. Leave the jack in place to support some of the weight while we torque the wheel. Again, while we're torquing this, we're making sure we're going in a criss-crossing star pattern, to make sure the wheel is torqued down evenly. All right, with that torqued down, we can go ahead and remove our jack. That completes our look at the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads with stainless steel backing plates, for 3,500 pound and 6,000 pound axles. Part number K225CPSS.

I needed these pads as soon as possible and didn't order them until late in the day. Etrailer got them out that day and I received the order the next morning! Great service. These pads are going to be used in salt water and appear to be superior for corrosion resistance versus the original pads that were in terrible condition due to corrosion. Also, the installation video was a great help and made the installation very easy. 603241

I ordered the ceramic brake pads with ss backing plate. I have the Kodiak ss calipers and ss rotors on my boat trailer. There was no rust on the old pads or any of the Kodiak equipment even though I fish saltwater frequently. I expect the new pads to perform as well. They arrived on time and were delivered to my mailbox. 563147

So far so good, I just installed these even though I ordered them a year ago. Can't wait to see how the Stainless Steel holds up on my boat trailer, the ones I took off were in terrible shape even though there was a lot of pad left. Great stopping power, I turned down my brake controller after I installed these. 407891

Product arrived on time as promised but the brake pads were packed loose in the boxes which allowed the coating to get badly chipped. I will have too paint them with rustoleum paint. Cardboard dividers would have prevented this. 396550

If you need replacement Kodiak brake pads for your trailer, and you launch in salt water, the pads with the stainless backing plates are the only way to go. I had the pads break free from plain steel backing plates, and damage my rotors. Not worth it. Brakes pads shipped promptly. The fact they were priced competitively and shipping was very reasonable is a bonus. etrailer rocks. 222465

  • We don't have the UFP Brand, but I can give you some compatible parts. For your trailer hubs with rotor, I recommend the Kodiak 10" Hub-and-Rotor Assembly - 5 on 4-1/2 - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs # KHR10D. You will need grease seal # RG06-050 along with bearing # L68149 and # L44649.

  • Can Dot 5 Brake Fluid Be Used with Rebuilt Kodiak 225 Brake Calipers?
  • The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # KDBC225S and similar finishes will require the Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Rebuild Kit for 3,500 lb to 6,000 lb Trailer Brakes # KDBC225KIT which will give you all the seals, bolts, bushings, and piston needed. Once rebuilt the system can use Dot 5 brake fluid but only after removing all previous fluid and flushing the system. Dot 5 is not compatible with Dot 3 or 4 so a complete flush or new parts are required. I also recommend...

  • Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper Replacement Parts

The 225 calipers are more prominent than the 204 calipers but they are not directly interchangeable. I reached out to my contact at Dexter (who bought out Kodiak) and he said the mounting locations are slightly different and the piston size is different with the 204 model being roughly a 2 inch diameter piston and the...

  • Is it Okay if Inner Disc Brake Pad Is Not Held Tight to Piston
  • The reason the inner pad feels like it's not held tight is because the caliper is floating which means when there's not pressure one of the pads typically drifts further apart. But when the braking pressure is applied the force on both sides of the pad equalizes as the caliper floats. It's kind of a weird thing to try and describe but if you apply the brakes with the wheel off and watch the pads you'll see how it all works together.

  • Recommended Disc Brake Kit for Airstream Tandem Axle Trailer
  • To convert to disc brakes, you will need to check the bearings on your current hubs. If you pull the hub you should find on the inner and outer bearing a number printed on each. Those numbers will help to confirm the fit on your spindle. If you can't find this number, then you can measure the spindle with a digital caliper like # PTW80157 where the bearings would rest on the spindle. I've attached a photo to assist. For 6 stud hubs with rotor, I recommend the Kodiak Disc Brake...

  • Kodiak 225 Caliper Brake Pad Recommendation
  • If your Kodiak calipers have 225 stamped on the outside between the two bleeder valves then the correct brake pads are the part # K225CP that you referenced. If you need pads with stainless steel backing plates (if your trailer gets launched in salt water you will want these) you would want part # K225CPSS.

  • Do Brake Pads on Both Sides of a Trailer Axle with Disc Brakes Need to Be Replaced at the Same Time
  • I would recommend you go with replacing the brake pads on the affected axle. Both sides of it, just like in a car how you do both sides at the same time. We currently have two sets of Kodiak brake pads for 3,500 lb setups. Part # K225CP or # K225CPSS for ones with stainless steel backing plates. You might be better off with the stainless steel setup if your last set rusted off.

If you have 3,500 lb to 6,000 lb axles, then use the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads w/Stainless Steel Backing Plate - 3,500 lbs to 6,000 lbs # K225CPSS. If you have 7,000 to 8,000 lb axles, use the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads - 7,000 lbs to 8,000 lbs # K250CP. If you calipers have been replaced and say Titan on them then the...

Then just review the linked page that displays all Kodiak replacement pads like the part # K225CP that you referenced. Since these pads work for 3500- to 6000-lb brake assemblies they are most likely the ones you need. Each kit includes parts for one axle.

If your axles are 3,500 lbs - 6,000 lbs I recommend replacement pads # K225CPSS (Kodiak 225) but if you have 7,000 lbs - 8,000 lbs axles then I recommend replacement pads # K250CP-SS (Kodiak 250). These are ceramic pads with a stainless steel back so they will last longer in water applications than regular backs. I have attached an installation video of these brake pads as well as a link...

  • How to Find Replacement Brake Pads for Trailer

For example, the Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads # K225CPSS are for calipers that are rated for 3,500 pounds to 6,000 pounds.

  • You will want to check your calipers for the number stamped on the outside between the two bleeder valves. (See image) If the number is 225 (calipers rated for 3,500 lbs - 6,000 lbs), then the correct brake pads are part # K225CP that you referenced.
