The ELEVATE Volvo S40 Complete Brake System has everything you need for an entire performance minded brake system. Our kit offers increased stopping capability with style at a reasonable price. Designed for the enthusiast, our system is tested and proven to perform. Consisting of high quality components, engineered to operate synergistically to shorten stopping distances and reduce brake fade under hard use. Reduction of un-sprung weight allows the wheel and suspension to react quicker, creating better handling. The System arrives partially assembled, and is a straightforward bolt-on installation replacing the factory calipers (front only), stock front 300mm rotors with 320mm rotors, all brake pads and brake lines.
The ELEVATE Complete Brake System includes:
Manufactured with a traditional eight slot pattern, the edges of the slots continuously clean and refresh the pad surface. This allows the pads to have a maximized friction surface always available. The slots prevent containments from collecting between the pad and disc interface. Also, slots prevent the formation of a water film on the disc in wet weather, maintaining the best brake response. ELEVATE does not offer drilled rotors because drilled rotors will form cracks (no matter what "treatments" are done to them) under any high performance driving situations. After machining, our rotors are cadmium plated to reduce rust formation. Included front rotors are 320mm (most factory front rotors are only 300mm) and rear rotors are factory dimension.
Lightweight Six-Piston Front Calipers
The key to weight savings in our System. The Wilwood-sourced six-piston calipers are lightweight, superbly-engineered, and provide significant clamping power. Compared to single piston Volvo brake calipers, our six piston calipers press on both sides of the rotors evenly and simultaneously. This translates into brake application that is quicker and more positive, and gives much better feel and control under threshold braking. Included are Wilwood Performance Street pads which are quiet and fairly low dusting when compared with other performance oriented brake pads. Other pad compounds are available from ELEVATE or Wilwood, and pad changes literally take just minutes. Rear Performance Brake Pads are a perfect match in braking power to the brake system. The front calipers feature a glossy black finish, but are available custom painted-contact ELEVATE for details.
High quality Hardware
Our rigid, hard anodized aluminum front caliper mounting brackets provide a secure mounting point for the new calipers, retaining the factory mounting points and hardware. Top quality braided stainless steel brake lines with grommets attached connect all four calipers with the factory hard brake lines. Precision cut brake pad heat shields are included to further isolate heat transfer from the front pads to the caliper.
The ELEVATE Complete Brake System will fit under most any factory 17" or 18" wheels and most any aftermarket wheel of similar or larger diameter. The Wilwood caliper is very trim and stays within the same fitment window as S40 or V50's that were equipped with the 320mm rotors with larger calipers from the factory. Will not fit 16" or smaller factory wheels. Always verify wheel fitment with the ELEVATE Front Brake System Diagram, factoring in a reasonable clearance.
