Dana 60 Ford Front Disc Brake Conversion



Our Ford Dana 60 Front 3/4 ton disc brake conversion brackets were developed due to customer demand. Note: uses 3/4 ton CHEVY rotors and calipers.

Brackets come with stainless steel spacers.

Please call to order.

For Jeep JK Dana 60 swap info give us a call. The swap brackets for ABS equipped vehicles include a feature for holding the wheel speed sensor and use the stock 1 ton ford rotors.

it depends on the wheels but to the best of my knowledge you will still have to grind on the calipers just like you must do with our rear disc brake conversions to be able to run most 15" wheels.

It should - I'm running 15's with the factory 1 ton dual piston calipers Yeah - it works, but I ground so much material off the calipers and their mounting surface I'm having brake issues. I will be purchasing this product to resolve the issue - if those big twin piston calipers can be ground to fit, the 3/4 ton stuff should be a lot easier, especially with the slide pin design.

I got a pair of these the other day and was thinking.....

If you mount them knuckle --> spacer --> bracket --> spindle doesnt it push your WMS out 1/4" each side and mess with the spline engagement in the hub? Like 1/4" less then stock..... Will it still allow you to run a Snap ring on the end of the stub shaft?

Or am I over thinking this.....

this kit does not affect spacing at all. in other words the new parts are the same thickness as the the old ones.

I've found that these don't fit the Reid knuckles without grinding a lot of material from the knuckle for the caliper to align with the bolt holes. Wish I would have known that. May try a different caliper tomorrow.

I like these, nice clean simple brackets, I also run Reid knuckles, any plans to make a set that fit without mods?

Anyone out there able to compare (pros/cons) using the GM single pistons to Factory pre ~92 dual piston? I have both old version and newer version of ford brackets with no calipers, trying to decided what direction to go.

I know I'm late to the party, but does your offer still stand?

I'll do it right -
