Brakes and assc parts

Just ran into an issue with our DRV that because of the model year is pre 2012, there are no brake rotors available for my unit. Along with that is DRV now has a "program" of axle replacement. I needed rotors, calipers and bearings but there are none to be found in N. America. This drove the search to DRV which indicated that there was a change in the axles.

Makes for an extremely expensive brake job!!

That’s the pits to have to replace trailer axles due to a lack of what should be common repair parts. What brand of axles are they?

I honestly don't know. After doing some searching here on this forum, I see I am not the only one in this boat. Its a common issue, more so than I'd like to see. Oh well, its done and on the road to being repaired at my dealer. They've stepped up quite a bit and it should be fixed in the next couple weeks. That's fine with me as I'm not using again until June.

OK, had a look at the site and found it was the "Independent suspension" repairs. Don't think I'm going down that road yet.

For the money you will spend making what you have work the extra for this suspension is well worth it!

If you have bad bearings they are still available from a bearing shop. Then turn the rotors if they can be.

Contact Jessy at Kodiak he can give you suggestions and most likely the bearing spec.

I had a brake pad go bad and it tore up the rotor. The machine ship was able to turn it and NAPA gave me new pads on warranty. The pads looked like they had chucks of metal in them, sure glad I caught this. The other three looked fine.

I've been carrying around a extra complete hub and was going to use it until I saw that they sent me 5/8" studs instead of 9/16" that I needed. Even though its been a couple of years Barry at Kodiak sent me a set of 9/16" studs on warranty. Now I have a usable spare.

Dump the HAPA pads as they are Made In Mexico. I have gone to EBC Yellow #DP41240R.

The EBC puts the NAPA to shame for quality and braking performance.

I have a 2009 MS 32TK3 and it has Kodiac Disk Brakes and 8K Axles. Didn't know they had drum brakes on these? Not sure if you change them to Disk Brakes is that a possibility?

If I said drum brakes I made a mistake. They are disk brakes.

Bought mine on Summit or AMAZON, whatever was less expensive.

I also suggest using Permatex Silicone Ceramic caliper lube #80653 on slide bolt grommets and all mating surfaces.
