SMP Trailer Brakes

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 SMP trailer and i can not seem to find what kind of brakes go on there. I called SMP and they gave me another number to call that supplies SMP with the brakes but they want a picture of the set up. The boat is in a garage and can not get to them. Is there anyone out there that knows or has replaced theirs that could give me a little help. Thanks for the help in advance.

If you have a competent local parts store you can take a set off and they shoud be able to match them up. They will need to have a catalog with a size and picture section.

If your trailers brakes are by Buddy Trailer Brakes by UFP (Unique Functional Products) Check the manual for the brakes or contact UFP @ (800)854-1905 or (760)744-1610 or www.ufp.net IN 99 & 01 they used pads also used in Plmouth Acclaim & Sundance and Dodge Daytona & Spirit. use only organic, non-metalic. Are you looking for something other than pads?

Have you ever torn the brake system down before? Iv'e had mine apart twice and the biggest problem is just a build-up of grime on the pistons. Tear down, clean up, a little brake silicone grease on the slides, a little neversieze on all threads of fasteners (particuarly between the brake tube & tube nut) Bleed out old brake fluid & for the cost of a qt. of brake fluid, the brakes work like new. I did have to replace the master cylinder 4 years ago as the original one had a badly corroded bore. All are UFP products. Disc brake parts are all Stainless Steel.
