Want dual calipers? We've got the solution!
These nice billet brackets and quality Wilwood dual piston calipers do the job extremely well in a tight and tidy package.
Installation does require cutting the dust shield for caliper and bracket clearance as well as removal of one of the mounting studs from the backing plate to install a new bolt for the new bracket. It's two bolts to mount the bracket and two bolts for the caliper.
Bracket Material and Hardware
The brackets are CNC'd from 6061 T6 billet and annodized to protect the metal. All the hardware is plated metric steel.
Parking brake and Factory Caliper
It definitely took more engineering to wrap the bracket over and find a way to secure everything with proper strength tucked in such a tight area and retain the parking brake. It might look simple now that it's done, but compare it to the other guys who made it easy on themselves by removing all the factory components to make it happen and maybe it wasn't so easy. A lot of us like a parking brake and the factory brake caliper is actually a nice two piston design, so why remove it all? Our kit is the least intrusive to factory components.
The caliper is properly located with the bleed screw facing up as the high point. Some kits have the caliper sitting directly on top, this is incorrect to properly bleed the brake system as it traps air in the pistons.
Calipers and Pads
We use the two piston Wilwood caliper. It's a lightweigh aluminum caliper that can be fitted with a good high bite brake pad that reduces the effort required on the hydro handbrake. They're high quality and readily available, we keep them in stock along with the pads. The calipers are sold individually, so you'll need to order a qualntity of two.
The brake pads are sold as a set for two calipers, so only one set is required to do both sides of the car.
