Wilwood Disc Brakes, a leader in high-performance brake solutions, recently unveiled two innovative Flexline Hose Kits for solid axle applications. These new offerings, comprising a Weld-On Tabs kit and a 3” Axle Clamp kit, are designed to facilitate the secure mounting of Flexline hoses to solid axle rear ends. This launch underscores Wilwood’s commitment to providing versatile, high-quality braking components for a wide range of vehicles.
The Weld-On Tab kit, a comprehensive solution for brake system upgrades, features weld-on tabs that allow for the convenient placement of chassis adapters. These adapters are essential for connecting the 12” Flexline hoses to the brake calipers. Customers can choose between 45° or 90°, -3 to 1/8-27 NPT fittings at the caliper end. The kit also includes a mount for a -3 to 3/8-24 IF connection through the weld-on tab to a 3/16” chassis hardline. This connection is securely held in place by the provided retainer clips, ensuring a reliable and durable installation.
The 3” Axle Clamp kit offers a clamp-on solution for those seeking a non-welding option. It includes 3.00” axle clamp-on brackets with line mounts, which facilitate the attachment of the 12” Flexline hoses to the brake calipers and to a 3/16” chassis hardline. As with the Weld-On Tab kit, customers have the option of choosing either 45° or 90°, -3 to 1/8-27 NPT fittings at the caliper end. The kit ensures a secure fit by allowing the mounting of a -3 to 3/8-24 IF connection through the mount on the axle clamp, held in place with chassis retainer clips.
Both kits are competitively priced, starting at $86.16, making them an accessible option for those looking to enhance their vehicle’s braking performance.
