Choosing the Correct Replacement Electric Brakes for 8,000 lb Axle


I have AL-KO 8K, electric brakes rubber torsion axles that I need to replace brakes on. I need to know if PN # AKEBRK-8R and 8L will work.


Expert Reply:

Knowing your axle's weight capacity - in your case 8,000 lbs - is the first step towards finding the correct replacement brakes. The brakes you referenced, which are sold together as the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-8, also have a 4 bolt mounting flange pattern, which you'll also need to have in order for these brakes to work as replacements, as well as wheels that are 15" or larger.

I've added links to review videos of the individual brakes for you to take a look at.
