Brembo Caliper Refurbishment Specialist

 

Our service includes a brake caliper rebuild for all Brembo calipers.

***We no longer offer repaint services.***

 

 

We are providing only a quick overhaul service where no repaint is requested.

Calipers will be fully striped, cleaned, rebuild and send back to customer the very next working day.

Some people paint their calipers by themselves and skip the important rebuild process.

Why do pistons get sticky and seized?

This is the most common problem on cars that are not used daily.

While the car is not used, the fluid seal will stick to the piston leaving a fraction of the rubber on the piston which will restrict their free movement.

Calipers need an internal clean every couple of years.

I have seen calipers removed from a car with only 30k miles on the clock with pistons that hardly moved.

But because they didn’t leak the customers thought they were fine.

The truth is they weren’t performing as they were designed to.

Sticky pistons will wear your pads and discs quicker.

You will get less pedal feel, contact between pads with discs while braking will be milliseconds slower than it should be with sticky pistons.

When you’re braking from 100mph you will lose a couple of meters (at 100mph car does 44meters in one sec.).

Think about it; those meters could be the difference between a safe stop and a crash.

Please beware of some caliper repaint services which DO NOT strip and rebuild calipers.

In this process, the dust seals and pistons are simply masked up prior to the repaint.

You will get shiny calipers – but with the same sticky pistons.

 

Remember: caliper pistons should be operating efficiently. Piston should move freely within the bore and there should be even pad wear on all calipers. Piston seizure is quite common and can sometimes go unnoticed!

 

 

*** Please note that all refurbished calipers will longer respond to the original quality standards set by Brembo and as of this the manufacturer product guarantee will be voided in such modification.***
