06 Summit Racings Brake Job Completion Kit

Summit Racing’s Brake Job Completion Kit

Servicing disc brakes isn’t a difficult job, especially when you have the right tools at hand. Summit Racing Disc Brake Service Parts Combo has the tools you need in one package.

The Motive Products Power Bleeder Kit uses pressurized brake fluid to force air and old fluid out of your brake lines. Then you will need the Lisle Brake Bleeder Wrenches in their combo with an offset design for easy access to screws. It includes wrenches for 1/4- and 3/8-inch, 8- and 10-mm screws. Now for clean up, OEM Automotive Tools Brake Caliper Brush features extra-durable stainless steel angled wire bristles to clean brake calipers, shims, and other areas when doing brake work. Also, Mueller Kueps Uni-Hooks are made from bendable aluminum so you can hang brake calipers safely out of the way. Lastly, having dedicated pans for oil, coolant, and so on, helps prevent contamination—a big deal when you take fluid to the recycler. The Dorman Drain Pan in Summit’s combo holds 15 quarts and has a breather vent, center plug, and a handle for easy pouring.

Summit Racing Non-Chlorinated Brake Cleaner cleans and decreases and the Permatex Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lubricant is formulated to lubricate critical caliper pins, sleeves, bushings, and pistons under the most adverse brake conditions. Rounding out the combo are Summit Racing Textured Nitrile Gloves and Summit Racing Scott Towels in a Box.
