his Ford Dana 60 Disc Brake kit allows you to run ¾ Ton disc brakes on your rig’s axles if you are using Dana 60 Kingpin Knuckles. We like to use Dana 60 Knuckles on our 14 Bolt axles.
Improved Braking Performance
Since Disc Brakes use flat pads that rub against flat rotors, even when the pads are due to be replaced they will still be flat. That means that your braking performance will be similar throughout the life of the pads as they were new.
Increased Resistance to Brake Fade
Brake fade is the temporary reduction or complete loss of braking power of your vehicle’s braking system. Since air has easy access to the brake pads, disc brakes are able to cool off easily and quickly
Reduced "Unsprung" Weight
Disc brakes typically weigh about half as much as drum brakes do. This means the axle weight reduce by quite a bit. In turn, their is less "unsprung" weight for the suspension to carry. This improves how the vehicle rides and extends the life of your shocks.
Increased Clearance for your Wheels
This disc brake system allows clearance on most 15″ steel wheels.
Improved Brake Pedal Feel
Because Disc Brakes are more consistent, you will notice the feel of the Brake Pedal is drastically improved.
Since Disc brakes are self adjusting, the maintenance is typically just a brake pad replacement. On almost all disc brakes, you are able to visually see the brake pad life and rotor conditions.
Precision Cut Brackets for Accuracy and Consistency
The Brake Brackets are precision laser cut from 3/8" High Strength Plate Steel. We chose to laser cut our fabrication parts because laser cutting tends to be much more precise and consistant than other cutting methods available.
Many Dana 60 Knuckle Applications
This kit was created to work specifically with Crane Axle's Dana 60 Ford Knuckles, but it also works with stock kingpin knuckles and other aftermarket kingpin knuckles. This kit is compatible with other well known aftermarket knuckle brands including Solid and Reid.
