BRAKE PAD FITTMENT ISSUES – BREMBO F40 CALIPER

 

The Brembo F40 4 Piston Caliper which is fitted to numerous Ford FPV vehicles and also to many other makes and models of vehicles such as Mitsubishi EVO’s, Subaru STi’s, Porsche’s, Ferrari’s, and even Land Rovers.

Due to the wide variety of applications, there are also 2 different pad heights that can be fitted to these calipers to suit specific vehicles.

If the vehicle is fitted with DBA 5000 series disc rotors, it is important that only the factory height pad be fitted to the vehicle.  If the vehicle is designed to use the short pad, fitting the tall pad may result in the pad backing plate fouling on the outer edge of the aluminum hat as the pad wears down.
