Rear Big Brake Kit Discount Package Combo 

Let me guess...  You already bought a big brake kit for your front and now you need to complete the system with a rear big brake kit?  These packaged Rear Big Brake Kits include Stainless Brake Lines and High Performance Brake Fluid for maximum braking performance, a turn-key installation, and the package price saves you money.  

 

What is a rear big brake kit?

A rear big brake kit is a complete brake system with oversized calipers, rotors, and pads to fit the rear driver and passenger side of your vehicle.  Ideally, the calipers will house larger, more efficient pistons to help increase braking performance.  The larger rotors and pads help with heat dissipation, and cooler running brakes tend to perform better. 

 

What does a rear big brake kit do?

Stopping your vehicle quicker, in a shorter distance, and with reduced brake fade is much safer. Some people upgrade their brake pads, others choose drilled or slotted rotors, some add stainless brake lines, and even more simply upgrade to a premium brake fluid. However, rear big brake kits combine all those upgrades and add high performance calipers for the ultimate way to achieve maximum stopping power. As a bonus, most rear big brake kits fill that gap behind your wheels and can increase your vehicle’s resale value.  

 

Are rear big brake kit upgrades worth it? 

This is an easy one. Yes!!!  From a safety perspective, vehicles with increased performance, larger wheels, and/or larger tires should add a rear big brake kit as soon as possible. The increased stopping power of a rear big brake kit can mean the difference between stopping and blowing past your stop.

 

What are the best rear big brake kits?

While this question is loaded, Accesspeed offers several brands of rear big brake kits, including Brembo, Wilwood, Baer, Stoptech, AP Racing, SSBC, Rotora, R1 Concepts, Alcon and PBR. Each rear big brake kit manufacturer has its own unique place in the brake market, making it difficult to play favorites.

 

Do bigger wheels and/or tires need bigger rear brakes?

Bigger wheels and tires are both bad for your brakes, but bigger AND heavier wheels and/or tires are bad for your rear brakes. In most cases, a 10% increase in wheel/tire size and/or weight will reduce your rear brake system performance by 10%. This problem is most obvious on trucks, SUVs and Jeeps running oversize wheels and tires. If you have already upgraded to bigger wheels or tires, you may have already learned this fact, and hopefully not the hard way.  

 

Why are rear big brake kits so expensive?

OEM rear brake systems are designed and built by the millions for production vehicles, using the least costly materials and methods possible. Aftermarket rear big brake kits are designed and manufactured in smaller quantities using higher quality materials, advanced production methods, and achieving higher performance braking goals.  In addition to R&D and production investments, aftermarket rear big brake kits have a higher marketing cost per unit sold. However, you can save money buying these rear big brake package combos.
