Brake manufacturer Bendix has released the latest Ultimate 4WD Brake Booster kit using dual-diaphragm technology to improve safety for 4WDs towing or carrying heavy loads.
Designed as a direct ‘bolt-in’ replacement for the original equipment single-diaphragm brake boosters fitted to the vehicle, the new booster is designed to improve brake pedal pressure and braking effectiveness resulting in improved stopping distances.
The Bendix Ultimate Brake Booster Upgrade provides more effective, safer braking performance for vehicles carrying added mass such as heavy tradesmen equipment, loaded camping gear, towing heavy trailers, caravans, boats etc. and also those fitted with larger diameter tyres.
They are specifically engineered for popular 4X4 wagons and dual cab utes that are commonly modified with suspension lift and larger wheels and tyres such as Landcruiser, Patrol, HiLux, Ranger, Navara, Triton etc.
The Bendix Ultimate 4WD Brake Booster uses dual (tandem) rubber diaphragms to effectively double the surface area over the original booster without significantly increasing the size of the canister.
The new booster kit is ADR certified and comes boxed with full fitting instructions. The booster complements the Bendix Ultimate 4WD Brake Upgrade Kits and it is recommended that Bendix heavy duty braided brake lines also be fitted at the same time to provide the ultimate braking for heavy vehicles originally fitted with single diaphragm brake boosters.
