Rockwell Pinion Brake

Most people remove the factory / OEM rockwell brakes since they are astronomically HUGE and weigh a lot. You litterally save hundreds of pounds by removing the brakes from your axles! This weight saving is great but now you need to add brakes back to your axle. When rockwell axles first became popular the only option was a pinion brake, now there are companies making 8 lug hub conversion kits with disc brakes for the rockwell axle! This page will illustrate the pinion brake and other brake options for the rockwell axle.
