SKU: R2049 14 Bolt Disc Brake Conversion Kit (C&C Axle & Hubs while using a single rear wheel)
The CNC Axle/ Dually axle is a favorite for offroad enthusiasts to swap into their 4x4 toys to gain strength while still staying somewhat narrow. This brake kit is designed to work with those swaps and run a single rear wheel on that axle. This kit will not work with dually wheels and is not recommended for vehicles towing excessive weight like the trucks these axles came in are designed for. Your factory drum brakes and parking brake will have much greater holding power when setup properly so it is recommended to keep that setup for tow rigs.
Our disc brake conversion kit is the best conversion to eliminate the 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. You may need to get a manual adjusting proportioning valve to tune in your front to rear braking bias (we recommend Wilwood) and will want to get/rent a brake line flaring tool to connect our soft brake lines to the hard lines on your axle (3/8-24 inverted flare)
The cab & chassis axle (C&C/Dually) is a very popular conversion due to their narrower width (64-66) when used with only one wheel. The weight savings on a standard full floating 14 bolt are substantial but take a look at the drums and pads on a dually, you save well over 100lbs swapping to discs! The 14 Bolt C&C axle is common in Chevy trucks from 1972 until today in the 1 ton range. It was stock in service trucks, flatbeds, crewcabs, and even some delivery vans and motorhomes.
