Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

No I do not. I have not found a 6 lug rotor that will accommodate the D52 caliper and pads.

Here are the 6 lug rear disc brackets that I do offer.

I replied to your PM, but your PM did not state which of my 5 rear disc brackets you were interested in.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Good morning all, so I have the D-52 brackets going on my 85 this mor and this may sound like a stupid question but is there a specific orientation for them? I put the driver side on for the caliper to the rear of the axle with no problem, then move to the passenger side but the alignment doesnít work that way. The thicker intermediate bracket only lines up with the outer ďcĒ bracket if itís mounted forward of the axle. I assumed they both went to the rear. Am I wrong? Iíve tried adjusting the ďcĒ bracket but that doesnít help. I have pics but not sure if they will load. Thanks.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

I found the problem. The intermediate bracket, the thickest one, is 4-1/2 inches wide on one side which allows for play against the back of the axle flange and 4-3/8 inches wide on the other which doesn’t allow for any play. Both brackets are this way. It’s as if the lazer cutter (or whatever was used) was not completely vertical while cutting them. I’ll take the one side to the shop and grind it down evenly and hopefully that works. It should. Just thought I’d give you a heads up Cap.

I also had to grind the inside of the intermediate bracket where it meets the axle flange, in order to get it to fit flush. aligning all the brackets was somewhat tricky. I chalked it up to small discrepancies in my particular axle. Also, had to grind down the “lip” of the outer pad, as it was grinding on the rotor hat.

*Pictures are turned funny, calipers are clocked in the correct position*

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Yep, went to the shop and used a micrometer to check it and after about half an hour of grinding, I got it to match the other side and boom! I have to order my calipers and pads tomorrow but hopefully they wonít give me any hassle with fitment. We shall see. Iím just glad in a way that I wasnít the only one with this issue....I thought I was going crazy. Lol

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

I appreciate the feedback. That's the only wayI know if something isn't fitting correctly. I will check into the dimensional issue with the spacers. Yes they are cut with a 400 amp high def plasma on a Kinetic table. That is why they have a little taper to the cut.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

I have started checking the cut taper on the spacers and correcting if needed.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Sorry no, not yet. I still can't get all these local people to leave me alone so that I can work on new products and installation instructions. Which differential and what size of original drum brakes do you have?

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

Let me see what I can do about determining the brake offset. I haven't been able to find a definitive answer online. I should have it written down at the shop. If nothing else I will have to tear apart the '90 10 bolt I have at the shop.

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

I mounted my brackets ( awesome by the way ) and I bolted on my D52 Wilwood calipers and I have a question about the Wilwood brake shoes.... the inner shoe goes on with the bolt going through the hole in the shoe and is snug....... the outer shoe just has the tabs that rest on the calipers yet they are loose fitting? Should they be?

I don't have nay brake lines or anything hooked up yet and not sure if that makes a difference or not?? Do they tighten up once there's brake lines and pressure attached???

Re: D52 Caliper Rear Disc Brake Brackets

It has been many years since I have had hands on with the Wilwood dual piston calipers but I do not recall the outer shoe being loose. On a stock D52 caliper they are not loose. Have you contacted Wilwood about this issue?
