Expert Reply:

The Timbren system with the shortest distance between the trailer frame and the spindle of the axle with enough capacity for you would be the Timbren Axle-Less System part # ASR2KHDS01. That distance is 3-13/16 inches.

For a disc brake kit that would work on this system you would want the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2HR35D-8.

The smallest diameter wheel that will fit with this brake kit would be a 10 inch wheel. The lowest profile tire we offer to fit a 10 inch wheel would be the Kenda 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10" White Wheel # AM3H390. This tire has an overall diameter of 20.5 inches.

For a way to electronically activate the brakes you will need an electric over hydraulic actuator. For that I would recommend the Carlisle HydraStar Electric-Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes # HBA16.

For a compatible brake controller we recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885 the most because of how easy it is to setup and how well it works. Nothing we offer is anti-lock brake compatible though.

For brake lines you would want the Demco Hydraulic Brake Line Kit # DM5425.
