Disc Brakes for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension


Two questions concerning your Timbren Axle-Less Suspension - Spindle Only - Regular Tires - 5200 lbs. 1: What disc brake assemblies would be compatible with this unit. 2: In the write-up both 2x2 and 2x3 steel tubes are noted to connect and reinforce the suspension pieces. Which is correct? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

To answer your first question, the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension # ASR5200S01 you referenced is compatible with disc brakes that use a 5-bolt mounting flange, the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR526D.

This is a hub and rotor kit; you will also need Bearing Kit # BK3-100, which has the correct bearings, races, and grease seal for the hub on this brake kit.

In regards to your second question, I took a look at the installation manual for the Timbren # ASR5200S01 and it specifies using 2" x 3" steel tubing, as you can see in the cut out of the manual I added for you.
