OUTFITTING A VINTAGE C-10 WITH A WILWOOD BIG BRAKE SYSTEM

THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS WE LIKE ABOUT VINTAGE TRUCKS: TIMELESS STYLING, MECHANICAL SIMPLICITY AND MYSTIC NOSTALGIA--BUT BRAKING PERFORMANCE ISN’T ONE OF THEM. Though they were fine for country road speeds and farm truck utility, the binders on these old trucks don’t meet the expectations of today’s enthusiasts.

Luckily for us, Wilwood Engineering offers complete, high-end braking options for historic trucks. After discussing our goals with the company, Wilwood experts recommended their 2.5-inch drop ProSpindles (P/N 831-14202), AERO6 Big Brake front kit (P/N 140-15305) and AERO4 Big Brake rear kit (P/N 140-10941) for our 1977 C-10 pickup. Besides giving us upgraded braking ability, the Big Brake kits fill our 20-inch wheel package nicely.

Like all of Wilwood’s components, the ProSpindles are works of art. The kit includes a pair of forged aluminum spindles, steering arms and bolt-in hubs. The ProSpindles work with Wilwood’s disc brake kits and provide a 2.5-inch drop for a more aggressive stance without affecting steering geometry. The hub is drilled for both 5 x 4.75-inch and 5 x 5-inch wheel bolt circles. They’re covered in a durable black e-coat for long-lasting good looks.
