Ford 9" Weld On Disc Brake Kit, 3.0" Axle Tube

Our disc brake conversion kits are the best conversion to eliminate drum brakes, in many cases it is less expensive to switch to disc brakes than to rebuild drum brakes. Changing from drum brakes to disc brakes is easy, and all the parts you need to complete the conversion and get rid of those heavy drum brakes are included in this kit. In the end you will have an axle that stops better, is easier to maintain, and weighs a lot less.

The Ford 9" axle is one of my favorites, the fact they have been around since 1954 and only stopped production in the late '90's shows just how good the axle really is! The fact that it was standard in everything from smaller dump trucks in the 50's, full size sedans in the 60's, 70's & 80's, and Ford trucks from the F150 through many of the F250's shows its versatility. Lastly we have NASCAR, I know we are an offroad parts company but NASCAR adopted this axle early on and made pretty much any gearing available and kept the cost down.

The only reason these are weld on brackets only is that the Ford 9" axle had 3 different flanges over the years and the housings can be difficult to identify. This kit is for a 3" tube which is the most common and comes with Ford 5 lug rotors from the front axle of an '89 Ford bronco. They use Chevy 3/4 ton front calipers and can be used for Jeep, Dodge, and IH 5 on 5.5" axles also.


  • Requires single steel wheel 15" with a maximum 4" back spacing or larger for aluminum wheels

Complete Kit Includes:

  • 1 Pair 3" ID Weld On Disc Brake Brackets
  • 2 Weld on Brake Line Tabs
  • 2 Brake Line Clips
  • 2 Brake Calipers
  • 2 Hydraulic Hoses with Banjo Bolt Fittings (Your hard line requires a 3/8-24" inverted flare fitting for these hoses to bolt to)
  • 4 New Brake Pads
  • 2 New Rotors


  • For slip over rotors, you may need to machine down the axle shaft flange for the rotor to slide over
  • Don't forget to re-bleed your brakes once you've installed your new conversion kit.
  • A Proportioning Valve is recommended, this will allow you to fine tune your front/rear stopping power bias. Your front axle should always do about 70% of the work.

High Quality Rear Brake Set
Brandon DiPietro (Ramona, CA, US) | July 29th, 2017
Received my rear brakes set for my 9" van rear end. What a well thought out product set at a reasonable price. Uses easily sourced replacement parts like the GM calipers and the for front disc brakes. Parts that are easy to find and replaced when needed. The kit shipped quickly and was WELL packaged. As typical quality for Ruff Stuff - overbuilt and reasonably priced. They continue to earn my business through great customer service and great products. Very happy with this kit.
