    Within the next week we will be offering a brake line kit for all you guys with disc kits. These kits will include custom brackets that bolt to the caliper bracket, new banjo bolts, compression fittings, and new rubber lines. We will have something up on our website by the end of the weekend. Here are some pics of what they would look like installed on your existing disc brake brackets, also the parts that are laying at the bottom of the bracket is what we include in the kit. It is mounted on one of our 10/12 brackets but it will work on any of our brackets and most others.

    What is a guesstimate on price? The brackets are awesome so if the price is right I should compliment it with great lines.

    Re: A-Tron has a new product coming very soon!!

    Could you sell just the lines.
    I'm getting a Dana 60 and it already has a disk brake setup on it but No brake lines. Would you lines work for something like that? Thanks for any info.

    The hose kit includes the two brackets that bolt to your existing caliper backing plates, hoses, mounting hardware, compression fittings and banjo bolts. Cost will be $50.00 plus S&H

    Dave, The kit is priced at $50.00 per set/pair and in addition to the obvious parts cost the bracket is CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum. This is the same material used for aircraft frames. The bracket has a hex machined into it for the brake hose fitting to be recessed into. All of our brake conversion plates now being sold will have a hole for bolting this fitting to the bracket however older brackets will require drilling a 1/4" hole for mounting. We will continue to look for these types of kits to make installation of our products as easy as possible. Watch for a kit for adding a emergency brake cable to our brackets in the near future.

    I have the axle brackets from some other company - will it be as easy drilling a 1/4" hole for mine to mount?

    Will your e-brake bracket kit work for stock AND flip mounted caddy calipers?

    On my setup I think an e-brake bracket could easily be attached to a longer bolt through my caliper brackets.... Does that make sense?

    Thanks!!

    I want to know more about the ebrake kit.
    I have the TSM brackets and use cheap GM calipers.
    WIll your ebrake kit work with my brackets? I know I'd have to buy the eldo calipers.

    Branndon, The shop doing the work for you will take care of this issue most likely by welding a clip to your axle. This kit allows mounting the hose to the brake bracket by drilling one hole (NO WELDING). It also provides a very neat looking end result that is easy to work on.
