Weld on Disc Brake Brackets

I make these myself. They are laser cut from 1/4" steel and use a large GM caliper. Mounting radius is for a 2-3/4" axle tube like that on YJs, but can be made to fit Dana 44s and other axles with a little grinding with an angle grinder.
Axles that they would work on to name a few are D35, D44, AMC 20 and others.
I also have a weld on bracket that I make for 8 bolt wheel FF D60s such as the Ford Units. It is almost identical to the one pictured except that it is slightly higher to allow for a larger diameter rotor and it has a 3" diameter mounting surface.
Sold in pairs obviously!

$40 CDN for the smaller ones ($27 US)
$45 CDN for the D60 style ($30 US)
Shipping is extra. They fit inside a 8.5x11 bubble pack envelope so shipping should be pretty cheap by mail.

I can take PayPal for those that like to use it.


Email me if you are interested or have any questions. Dean - jeep@reach.net

Here is a picture showing a bracket mounted to a caliper.



Rotor and caliper shown are 1979 GM 3/4 ton parts

make them for 14 bolts and name your price.

Oxjockey and I spent better than 4 hours trying to make the A-A brackets work on a C&C 14 bolt

Yes I have them for 14 bolt FF as well. Price on them is $100 CDN (roughly $68 US). Here is a picture of what the kit looks like. I belive shipping on them should be between $10-$12 with insurance. May be cheaper though, that is just a guess.

those won't fit on a cab and chassis 14 bolt, the flange is too far away.

here's one for you 1-toncj7,
product idea:

make a bracket that holds 2 calipers:
a 1/2 ton gm caliper.
and a willwood mechanical caliper.

a real rear caliper and a parking brake to go with it without resorting to the undersized and overpriced caddy calipers
nobody offers that

Sundowner,, thanks for the idea. I will look into that.
But wouldn't buying a GM caliper and a wilwood parking brake caliper be almost as much as the pricey caddy ones?
I have nevr priced the Wilwood parking brake so I don't know.

I have never seen the AA manufacturing 14 bolt mounts so I have no idea what the difference is.
If there is enough interest in C&C 14 FF disc brakes, I will look into designing something for them. I will just have to get my hands on one. If I do I will design one regardless. I am working on bolt on kits for several axles right now.

a pair of willwood mech calipers is really cheap.
something like $70, if I remember.
they have the prices on the website.

a-a doesn't make weld-on 14b brackets.
they're too short and 14b tubes are a bizzare OD, something like 3-5/16"

afaik, nobody makes weld-on brackets for the c&c axles, but everybody and his brother makes the bolt-on kind.


btw, you rgonna move this to the venor forum?

I'd buy a set that had the mount for a mechanical caliper as well as the normal front calipers for a Toy axle.

Already make them for two different flange styles of full float D60s. As soon as I get my hands on the third style that I know of, I will start making them for it too.




Follow the link for more info on them.

How about something for a Ford Sterling? It's popularity is increasing with all the gearing and locker options that have been popping up lately. I'm looking into disks for my Sterling right now.

All I have right now is weld on brackets that should work for you. You are actually the first person I have ever had ask for Sterling conversion.

Hell, even a generic weld on bracket to mount those in addition to what we allready have would be excellent. Unlike a TCase brake, one bracket would work on a lot of vehicles.

I did a quick search on those Wilwood calipers, the only place I found a price listed had them for $55/ea.
