Ford Dana 60 Full Float 77-84 Rear Axle Disc Brake Kit

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 full float Dana 60 axle is common in Ford full size trucks from 1977 until the late 80's 3/4 ton and 1 ton range. Some D60 axles have a large lip at the flange so double check the diameter as these brackets are radiused at 3 15/16". These will only work on a '77 and newer Ford rear D60 axle but we have seen some old runs of the older D60 make it into a newer truck. Best way to tell is measure the 4 bolt flange bolt spacing, if they are all equally spaced you will want the 76 and older brackets

Important

  • Requires single steel wheel 15" with a maximum 4" back spacing or larger for aluminum wheels
  • Does not work on van axles. The frames are typically wider which place the springs further out on the tubes blocking the ability to bolt up the caliper

Complete Kit Includes:

  • 1 Pair Ford D60 Rear 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)
  • Standard Calipers come with 10mm Banjo Bolts. El Dorado Calipers come with 7/16" Banjo Bolts
  • 4 New Brake Pads
  • 2 New Rotor

Note

  • If longer studs are needed, usually dually studs are long enough. Double check stud diameter, studs should drop freely into the rotor. DO NOT press studs into the rotor. If your hub has too large of studs you will need to drill the rotors to accept them. Be sure to have minimum 5/8" lug nut thread engagement
  • Rotor installs onto the backside of the hub
  • Some Ford hubs are thicker than others, if your rotor does not slip over the back side of the hub then you have a thicker hub that requires machining 3/16" off
  • This is for Full Float axles only, does not work on Semi Float
  • 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.
  • The brake bracket mounts inboard of the 4 bolt flange with the bend going towards the wheel. R1336-01 Driver side/ R1336-02 Passenger side

This kit worked great. I actually have a Dana 61 in my '78 F250, no problem there. The kit came with no instructions, but it is fairly straight forward. On my vehicle the bracket bends went towards the inside. I did need to use some grade 8, half inch washers as shims between the caliper bracket and axle flange to center the pads in the caliper. Other than that, it went straight on. Now I am enjoying smooth super, even braking. I hope this helps. Thanks guys!
