Disc Brakes

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 to have to repair or replace, thus reducing maintenance costs.

Over-the-Hub Rotor

Kodiak's slip-on, cast iron rotor makes it easy to convert an idler axle to a disc brake axle. Simply place the rotor over your hub. It is most often wheel bolt piloted for a loose fit and then held in place by the wheel itself. With a separate rotor and hub, you can easily repair or replace 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.

Mounting Brackets

Designed for axles with 5-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.

Excellent experience all the way around! Fast shipping. Simple installation. Great instructions and videos. Reasonable prices. The best part though is the customer service. I ended up speaking to William B a couple times and he guided me thought ordering exactly the right thing. He had me confirm various measurements on my trailer to ensure I had the correct parts. Actually he helped me discover that the parts I was removing were incorrect so if we had of replaced like for like I would have had problems. Getting this right up front made the installation and final quality what it should be. Thank you eTrailer and thank you William!


may cost a little more but I have not had any problems and Drive from Birmingham Al to Panama city beach Fl. at least 6 times a year to put my sea hunt off shore boat in to fish (Salt water) No corrosive at all yet only one flat tire
Thank you for the great service


I used this kit to add surge brakes to my 5200#-axle boat trailer. I bought it a couple months ago and it did not have brakes but really should have. The parts are well made and installed easily once I acquired the bolts I needed that weren't included. The description and pictures are not 100% clear that the mounting bolts to put the brackets on the trailer brake flange are not included. I'm not sure why they don't come with the kit but I ended up getting some 1.25" x 3/8" SS bolts to mount them. While the hat-style rotors are nice from a price and ease of replacement perspective, if your lug bolts don't have extra length, you would be better off getting the integral hub and rotor version. Finding longer lug studs for my 20 year old trailer and removing the old ones was a PITA. Had I known, I would have spent the extra $ for the integrated hub/rotor set. The calipers have bleeding screws on both top and bottom so they can be mounted on either side of the trailer. That's a nice feature as its one less thing to go wrong.
Once installed with new actuator coupler and brake lines, the brakes made a huge difference in towing the boat. The boat alone is 3000# and the trailer and gear probably add another 750 or so. It used to push my Yukon XL around when braking but now it tows smooth and easy.
etrailers was awesome to work with. Good communication via email and simple fast ordering and shipping. I will definitely use them for future trailers get needs.

The brakes have been troublefree and make a huge improvement in highway and mountain driving


Bought Kodiak full kit of rotors, calipers, and primary hydraulic actuator from eTrailer for my triple axle boat trailer and perfect result. Competitor was couple dollars cheaper, but couldn't answer simple product questions and squirrely about delivery details, and I don't have patience for that crap. Let's go eTrailer!


Great company! Everything was streamlined and processed very quickly with fast shipping. The website is among one of the best out there. Bought this Kodiak brake kit as a replacement for my boat trailer which had Tie Down parts and it fit perfect. Really helpful how to and review videos were available as well. I definitely recommend and am now a customer for life. Product delivered matched the description 100%.


Even came with brake pads!


I purchased this Kodiak Disc brake a little over a year now and had no problems so far. I check them each time I return home and they look fine. Good product.


The staff at etrailer are great. We had a urgent need to get our trailer able survey boat to project site and realized the trailer was in need of repair when we trailered the boat. I called etrailer and they had all the parts needed and was able to ship quickly to us. The parts fit and work great. Thanks a lot!


After one year on the trailer and a 450 mile road trip, installed parts are holding up well and foresee no problems for a couple of years.


The brake kit came with everything I needed. It seems to be of good quality and is working great. Installation was very easy. Fast delivery and good customer service.


Everything seems fine, my son installed last year as my trailer had been sitting outside not being used for a couple of years. Thank you!

  • Dimension From Center of Rotor to Outer Edge of Caliper on Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R526D

  • Inexpensive Corrosion Resistant Disc Trailer Brakes for Salt Water Use and a Boat Trailer
    The best possible material for saltwater applications is going to be stainless steel but since cost is a factor stainless would not be the way you would want to go. The next best thing is going to be a brake kit with Dacromet finish like # K2R526D. The Dacromet has a 400 to 600 salt spray rating but it is always a good idea to spray them of with fresh water after use in salt water. This kit is designed to fit over idler hubs with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern and 15 inch or larger wheels...

    The 5-1/2 bolt pattern is part of the 6 on 5-1/2 mounting pattern that the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2R526D mounts on, this will be the same as your wheel's bolt pattern. To determine what mounting pattern you have I have a Help Article for you to look at, that I've attached. Basically you need to determine if you have a even or odd number of lugs/posts on your hub. If you have 6 then that's even, since it's even you will want to measure from center to center of the lug directly across...

  • Differences Between Combined Hub & Rotor and Separate Hub & Rotor Brakes
    The only real difference between using an integrated hub/rotor combo and a separate hub and rotor combo is that if something happens to the rotor and or hub on the separate hub/rotor, you can just replace the damaged component and not the entire assembly. As long as the idler hub you have on your trailer now has a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern, then I recommend using the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2R526D. If you already have the calipers and mounting brackets then you can use part # KR12D...

  • Will Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Replace UFP Brakes On 5,200 Lb Torsion Axle
    The correct Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for a 5,200 lb axle is part # K2R526S for stainless or part # K2R526D for dacroment. In regards to compatibility, the brake mounting flange and spindle size are the only factors we can confirm. I don't foresee any issues but test fitting would be the only way to confirm. There are no exclusions for torsion axle trailers in general.

For a compatible idler hub to work with this two piece rotor kit you will want to go with the Kodiak Trailer Hub for 3,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Galvanized Steel # Q-HUB84545 which has the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern you were looking for and is designed specifically...

  • Is There an Exact Replacement For a Tie Down 46250 Brake Caliper or What Option is There
    Finding information on the Tie Down 46250 was not an easy task as it was discontinued awhile back. From what I could find, it looks like the calipers marked 46250 often times have to change the mounting bracket and rotor/hub in addition to the calipers. This means the DeeMaxx Disc Brake Caliper # DE86VR would not be an exact replacement and likely not compatible.

  • How to Prevent Rust on Disc Brake Rotor
    The best thing you can do to help prevent rust on your # K2R526D rotor surface is to clean them before storing the trailer. It is likely you will still get a little surface rust which is a common occurrence and not something to be overly worried about. Once you drive the trailer and hit the brakes a few times the rust will be gone. The only way to completely prevent this would be to upgrade to stainless steel rotors like # KR12S

A better option would be the Kodiak kit part # K2HR35D which comes with hub/rotors that fit the 84 spindle.

There is one exception to this which is select 4,400 lb axles. That said, you cannot use 4 bolt brakes with 5 bolt flanges or vice versa. In order to choose the correct disc brake kit you'll need to know the axle capacity. The Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2R526D for example is for 5,200 lb axles.
