      Single Wheel Disc Brake Kit (1984-1997) Sterling 10.25 Rear Axle



      These 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 Sterling is becoming a very popular conversion due to the strength of the axle. The Sterling came in 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. It works on the older style Sterling housing with standard 8x6.5 lug pattern. Will NOT work on Semi-float or metric lug pattern Sterlings.

      Important

      • Requires single steel wheel 16" with a maximum 4" back spacing or larger aluminum wheels

      Complete Kit Includes:

      • 1 Pair Ford Sterling Disc Brake Brackets
      • 2 Weld on Brake Line Tabs
      • 2 Brake Line Clips
      • 2 Brake Calipers
      • 2 Hydraulic Hoses with 10mm Banjo Bolt Fittings
      • 4 New Brake Pads
      • 2 New Rotors
      • Bracket spacers (some housings do not require this spacer. You will need to test fit to see if you will need them)

      Note

      • Fits 1984-97 Sterling axles
      • Rotor slips over the hub
      • 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.
      • We have made these and used them successfully for years now but something still eludes us. On some you will need to space the bracket from the mounting flange (spacer included with kit), 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.

       

       



      *NOTE* Rotor slips over the hub

      *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 will work on a 95-97 Ford with a Sterling Rear axle. 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. 

      **NOTE** when selecting E-Brake capable rotors the factory emergency brake cable will need to be modified to work. If you do not wish to modify the factory cable you will need to use Lokar EC-80-FU universal cable.
