Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

I do luv the Brembo calipers because of the size of them, im happy with the front calipers on WK's but the rears are so tiny.

This just popped in my head, is there any way to put the calipers that go on the front of a WK in the rear, prob not huh?

Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

[QUOTE=TimmyB;101337]When I did my lowering springs and then another time I swapped out a blown strut the calipers fell from the wire coat hangers I used to prop them up and they scratched from hitting the driveway, good thing they give you so much paint in the dupli-color brush on kit I was able to just touch them up perfectly. I think if someones really careful and maybe wrap the calipers in a towel or put a bunch of painters tape over them they should be fine. In the pic his bolts are painted also, not sure what those are for though and if they would ever need to be removed which would mess up the paint in those areas.[/QUOTE]

That was my concern too...

Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

The pads on the brembo are easy to remove there are 2-21mm bolts on the back and the caliper is free from the rotor, punch out 2 pins, removed the holding bracket and out slides the pads its very simple. Once the caliper is off, old pads out you can take a C Clamp and using the old pads decompress the pistons (using a towel or protect the painted part of the caliper).

So its the same as the stock WK calipers then, two bolts in the back and the caliper pops off and just pull the pads. Those bolts in the front must be holding the caliper together which would prob never have to be removed then.

Here's a question, thread jacking, lol. I have had two people ask if i upgraded my rotor size because of the 20" rims, I said there's no need to because when I match up my stock wheels to them they are almost the same diameter. My question is because I have larger rims and more mass to them probably am I putting more strain on my rotors and pads and would benifit from getting larger rotors?
