1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup Rear Disc Brake Conversion Kit - Pro Driver Series
Pro Driver Series: Our ultimate for looks and stopping - If you are looking for the ultimate in looks but also expect the ultimate in performance, then you need our Pro Driver Series. This complete kit is engineered to work with most 15” wheels and all 16” and larger wheels. It utilizes 4-piston billet aluminum calipers along with 12” cross-drilled and slotted rotors. The system uses a drum-in-hat style park brake assembly with all the brackets and backing plates machined from T-6061 billet aluminum for increased strength and durability. Every component is the best available to provide the looks and handle the most aggressive of driving. If you demand the best, stop looking!
For the Pro Driver Series, we wanted a caliper that had stopping capability like nothing we have ever offered. But we also knew you would want a caliper that had a presence inside the wheel. The caliper is CNC machined from billet aluminum. It uses four stainless steel pistons that are double sealed for both pressure and weather meeting D.O.T. specifications. The caliper is finished in an attractive clear anodized finish. We even go as far as using stainless steel abutments keeping the pads from wearing the aluminum body while keeping pad movement and noise to a minimum.
All of the backing plates and caliper mounting brackets hubs are machined from T-6061 billet aluminum and then clear anodized or black hardcoated depending on the component. This gives your 1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup a brake upgrade with not only good looks, but a bracket that can be held to exacting tolerances making the installation that much easier on your existing OEM spindles.
Our Pro Driver Series brake conversion kit for the 1972 C10 Pickup uses only the highest quality components. Our one-piece rotors are directionally veined and also slotted and drilled for better cooling and stability over straight veins.
For a modern braking system like the Pro Driver Series, modern components and ideas are required. The park brake used is a drum-in-hat similar to what is used on late model vehicles like the Corvette and GM trucks. The big difference is a billet backing plate for additional strength instead of the stamped steel piece used by the OEM’s.
Because this brake package uses a larger rotor and caliper, wheel fitment and sizing on your '72 C10 Pickup requires careful attention. The brake system fits inside any wheels larger than 16” and will even fit some 15” wheels making it a great match when upgrading to the front. To aid in wheel fitment and selection, we have available a brake template to use inside your existing wheels or when ordering new wheels. Simply download the file from our website or have one of our salesman email it to you.
