Wilwood Engineering has recently introduced a new D154 parking brake rear kit that features the latest in disc brake technology. These kits are available for the popular Ford, GM, and Mopar muscle car rear wheel drive axles. These kits not only provide better performance, but also the advantages of a parking brake for situations where parking brake functionality is needed.

Kits feature Wilwood’s forged billet D154 GM Metric 2-piston floating mount calipers in black powder coat. The floating caliper helps to minimize knock-back in axles that are prone to movement. Calipers work in conjunction with large 12.19” diameter ULHP plain face vented rotors. These kits come with an integral parking brake bracket which houses the drum shoe parking brake and all necessary hardware for an easy, bolt-on installation. Optional SRP drilled and slotted rotors as well as red powder coated calipers are also available.

Wilwood BP-10 high performance street pads round out the kit. Other brake pad compounds, including those for off-road applications, are also available.

Stainless steel braided flexline hose kits are recommended, but not included with the kits. Wilwood offers universal flexline kits for 3/8-24 IF chassis fitting and 10mm x 1BF chassis fittings, call for details.

All of Wilwood’s performance brake kits are loaded with cutting edge technology built on years of domination in world motorsports. These kits will not only exceed your braking demands, on and off the track, but also enhance the appearance of your street/show vehicle.

The fuel bowls incorporate ten new features including internal baffling to help control fuel slosh; a fuel trough to direct fuel to the jets; and a fuel shelf which minimizes aeration and promotes more consistent metering.

Wilwood is pleased to announce their new D154 direct bolt-on replacement caliper for most 1968 – present GM muscle cars and passenger vehicles that were originally equipped with iron single piston D154 pad type calipers. The calipers are specifically designed to mount in the stock location, with stock size rotors, using regular Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) type or aftermarket compound replacement pads, and fitment anywhere the OEM calipers were used.
The D154 caliper represents the latest refinements in modern caliper design and manufacturing including forged aluminum body, stainless steel pistons for their slow heat transfer properties and high corrosion resistance; high temperature seals for controlled piston retraction, which improves driver feel. The caliper comes in a single piston 2.50” diameter as well as two 2-piston configurations, 1.62/1.62” and 1.12/1.12” for vehicles that have been converted to four wheel discs. Both caliper configurations have the same muscular exterior design, giving them that big-brake multi-piston look.
Calipers are available in black or red powder coat which compliments wheel, tire and rotor upgrades, on all types of customized vehicles. Save weight and gain reliability with the new D154 calipers from Wilwood
