Dana 70 Ford Axle Disc Brake Kit

Dana 70 Ford Axle Disc Brake Kit

Part Number: OPR2052

Requires single steel wheel 15" with a maximum 4" back spacing. 

These are not for dual rear wheels, they are made for single rear wheel axles.



This is the bracket for your Ford D70 & D70U SRW, it actually fits! I developed these after the success of our 14 Bolt brackets and seeing what was available on the market and the problems associated with the others. The D70 was used by all of the Big 3 automakers at one time or another and they all had different uses and designs specifically for them. These are for a Ford D70 or D70U SRW only! 

We have been making the brackets for a long time now with complete success so why not make the complete swap kit! These also use the '75 Chevy 3/4 Ton Front Rotors and Calipers and those really cost peanuts but the rotor will need the throat opened by ~3/16". 

Complete Kit Includes:

  • 1 Pair Dana 70 Ford Axle Disc Brake Brackets
  • 2 Weld on Brake Line Tabs
  • 2 Brake Line Clips
  • 2 New Brake Calipers
  • 2 Hydraulic Hoses with 10mm Banjo Bolt Fittings
  • 4 New Brake Pads
  • 2 New Rotors

*NOTE* Double check your wheel stud diameter and length. These rotors are for a 5/8" knurled diameter stud so you will need to drill the rotors if your studs are larger or try Dormin wheel stud #610-180 which has a 5/8" knurled diameter for the rotor/hub and a 9/16 diameter lug nut. Be sure you have a minimum of 5/8" lug nut thread engagement when torquing wheels 

*NOTE* Rotor installs onto the backside of the hub! 

*NOTE* Don't forget to re-bleed your brakes once you've installed your new conversion kit. 

*NOTE* 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.

*NOTE* This kit is only for the Ford D70 & D70U rear axle.



After many years of customers asking us for complete Disc Brake Conversion Kits

we finally did it! Now I had resisted doing it for good reason, you could buy the parts

for less locally. However, now that we are bigger and have a bit of buying power we

can beat the local stores and deliver everything in one kit without first asking

if your rig has AC like at the parts stores! All of these kits are tried and true, the 14

Bolt stuff has been made by us for 10 years and all the others have been in the line-up

for at least 8 years! We know how to make them work right the first time.
