4 Pot Front Brake Calipers
The standard brakes on a Dart are so good many drivers will wonder why they need upgrading. But the high speeds available to Dart owners on today's motorways are far in excess of roads in the fifties when this car was conceived. The front brakes can comfortably provide greater retardation without unbalancing the brake feel. We started our upgrade journey with 3 pot calipers borrowed from the E-Type parts bin but now have gone one stage (or do I mean pot) better with dedicated 4 pot calipers made for us in the UK by Zeus. These are a straight replacement for the OE calipers, provide significantly increased pad area and seem less susceptible to squeal than the standard set up. They are supplied complete with pads for £475 a pair including VAT
I can also supply 4 pot callipers that are made from billet aluminium. These are manufactured in the UK by Coopercraft and are supplied with pads. They are a straight replacement for the standard calipers however sometimes when fitting replacements it is necessary to shim them in order to centralise the caliper with the brake disc. I have had some shims manufactured and can supply these if required. The billet calipers photographed below are available for £510 a pair including VAT. Postage and packing is extra.
