The ELEVATE Volvo S40 Front Brake Caliper Upgrade offers increased stopping capability with style at a reasonable price. Designed for the enthusiast, our system is tested and proven to perform, while keeping the cost in check by retaining the factory 300mm rotors. 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, pads and brake lines.
The ELEVATE Front Brake Caliper Upgrade includes:
Lightweight Six-Piston 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. The calipers feature a glossy black finish with "Wilwood" imprinted, but are available custom painted-contact ELEVATE for details.
High quality Hardware
Our rigid, hard anodized caliper mounting brackets provides a secure mounting point and utilize factory mounting bolts. Top quality braided stainless steel brake lines with grommets attached connect your new calipers with the factory hard brake lines. Precision cut brake pad heat shields are included to further isolate heat transfer from the pad to the caliper.
The ELEVATE Front 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 your stock calipers with 300mm rotors.
To complement the calipers, ELEVATE separately offers matching slotted and plated front and rear rotors.
