Front disc brake kit for the Planar suspension found on the 48-51 Jeepster and 46-55 2WD Station Wagon. This is the first and only disc brake kit on the market for these vehicles. This kit was made by the experts at JeepsterMan. You finally have a solution to stop your Willys Jeepster or Willys Station Wagon. This kit includes everything you need and includes free shipping to the 48 contiguous!!!!! This is a very basic install and in my opinion installs easier than replacing the drums and shoes. This kit is a must for those with safety and quality in mind.

  • New 1″ thick rotors and 11" diameter, 5x4.5 bolt pattern just like the originals. Rotor is a 2WD and includes a new hub, studs included in rotor/hub. Lug nuts included.
  • New rubber hoses with banjo bolts for calipers
  • Disc brake mounting brackets and spacers, exclusively designed and tested by the JeepsterMan crew. Loaded GM style calipers, GM style pads, and all banjo bolts/mounting hardware, all wear parts can be purchased at your local parts store.
  • New bearings and axle seals, spacers 1/2" wheel spacers that allow you to use your stock wheels while still keeping the weight of the car on the hub and spindle.
  • Detailed instructions
  • Options: Extra Fee for steel braided hoses.

Note: This kit does require very minor grinding on the tie rod bracket. Our kits will work with stock 15″ wheels. If you are using a disc/drum setup, a proportioning valve is recommended, we sell this item and can help you with any brake upgrades. Fits:

  • 1948-1951 Willys Overland Jeepster.
  • 1946-1955 Willys Overland Station Wagon, 2WD only with Planar suspension.

Note: There is a $25 freight fee due to weight.

Easy ordering!

Was able to get a disc brake conversion kit for my 1949 Jeepster. Couldn’t find it ANYWHERE else! Really appreciate the fine folks at “The JeepsterMan”…they’ve been very helpful!

Awesome Engineering/Weak Shipping

Very clever kit to fit a GM floating caliper onto the stock Planar spindle!

Order fulfillment/shipping fell down on the job as I was short the half-inch spacers, and my hardware bag was all messed up and required a trip to the hardware store. They also did not ship the instructions in the box.

I have about 200 miles in short trips and everything seems to be working well! The great improvement over the stock drum arrangement which was in need of a major rebuild; the disk kit really simplified bringing the Jeepster up to safe, roadworthy status. Technically, I am very impressed with your kit!
