What was your secret to getting 5 years out of the Tie Downs. I have changed 4 calipers in 4 years?

Kodiaks are next, best price seems to around $400 per axle.

Post the change out with pictures when you do it.

Good luck.

I'm starting my 4th year with the same tiedowns that came with the trailer and I believe that they are the originals that came on the trailer new in 06. I haven't seen the horror stories with them either

6 yrs before ours were shot [never flushed] slap on another set of calipers for $80 a wheel good to go again. they must slide free and be square to rotor shims maybe needed

The best prices I've ever seen for Kodiaks are at www.etrailer.com. I don't know your wheel size/axle but I've seen some of the Kodiak silver cadmium setups from $335 per axle at etrailer.

Check us out, some kits you are going to see on other websites don't include the hubs.

Just beat this to death for 2 weeks and ended up going thru Eastern Marine. Waiting to get them this weekend to install. Their kit was the Dacromin integral hub rotor with Stainless calipers and hardware. Jam replacing my Titan 60 converting to discs and new flex brake lines complete kit is about $630 shipped.

They restrict themselves to UPS which cost me $65. I think USPS and FEDEX ground could shave some cost.

Any way I shaped it cost and availability wise, Eastern came out on top.

Good tip. He was the least expensive for everything including shipping. Ordered enough to redo three axles with daromet/stainless brake kits plus new bearings for all.
