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

The Ford Full Float SRW Sterling rear axle Disc Brake Complete Conversion Kit! The Sterling are becoming a very popular conversion due to the strength, they are even a tad stronger than a GM 14 Bolt axle. This kit will eliminate the drum brakes that weigh way too much and don't stop you nearly as well! 

The Sterling axle came in a great many Ford trucks in the 3/4 - 1 Ton range from the late 80's until the mid '90's so they are fairly easy to find. Changing from Drums brakes to disc brakes is easy, and all the parts you need to complete the conversion of your rear axle are included in this kit. In the end you will have an axle that stops better and weighs 80lbs less, sounds like a win to me! Works on 84'-94' Axle only. To use this with the later years a 1/8- 1/4" spacer between the brake bracket and mounting flange would be required

Complete Kit Includes:

    • 1 Pair Ford Sterling 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
    • Rotor NAPA#4886799

      *NOTE* Rotor slips over 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* We have made these and used them successfully for 7 years now but something still eludes us. On some you will need to space the bracket from the mounting flange 1/8", it is not year specific, it is likely to be that they were made slightly different for 3/4 ton and 1 ton but we have not been able to identify which.

      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.
