Thank you. You have rated this product.

Upgrade your rear brakes to lightweight and rigid 4-Piston calipers, AND keep your parking brake! Great match to the Brembo front brakes or any of our own front caliper upgrades or big brake kits. Fits right over your factory rotors, no need to change rotors to run this kit (photo shows installed with our rear Superlight wave rotors, available separately on this site).

RIGID and ultra light 4-piston caliper for improved braking response over the standard single piston OEM brake calipers, reduced unsprung mass, wider pad selection, better looks and MORE FUN.

Comprehensive kit includes:
* Powerlite 4 piston calipers with parking brake
* CNC Aluminum Mounting Brackets
* Stainless Steel brake lines
* All mounting hardware
* BP20 Street Performance Brake pads
* Wilwood high-temp brake fluid

Weight
This caliper kit is 4 lbs lighter per side than the factory caliper. Combine this kit with our scalloped 2-piece drop-in replacement rotors shown in the photo above and save over 12 lbs of unsprung weight in the rear!

BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: I love the combo of our front and rear caliper conversions, braking from speed is much improved, looks are improved, even ride quality is much better because unsprung weight is reduced a lot. But there is one compromise in using this style of caliper in the rear, the parking brake function is not near as effective as stock parking brake. I learned to always curb the wheels when I first learned to drive but that becomes double important here because the parking brake is not as effective as stock parking brake. So, the other way to go is some folks do front and rear light two-piece rotors, front caliper conversion, and use our RED caliper paint to make the rear stock caliper RED so it better matches the front new calipers while still keeping full stock parking brake function.

Dust Boots
We occasionally get a call from someone asking if these calipers have dust boot seals because the factory calipers have them and so they assume this is a feature they need to be concerned about. Wilwood brake calipers, just like all racing brake calipers, do not use dust boots to seal the caliper pistons. This is intentional and done for several reasons, including the point that rubber dust boots can catch fire under extreme brake heat. The pistons fit tightly into the caliper so they seal without the need for rubber seals. In our decades of experience with thousands of Wilwood calipers this design has proven itself completely reliable. These calipers are suitable for road use in all climates and conditions as well as on the race track.

REVIEWS

I think that Brian Goodwin is the perfect example of what is good about the aftermarket industry. He is one of the few vendors that actually cares about his customers. He is the example that all companies should be trying to emulate when it comes to customer service. Not to mention his ingenuity and desire to improve on what is already a great car. I have never had a "bad" experience with Good-win-racing. Well, except for the constant temptation to SPEND MORE MONEY.

I red'all the parts in the order I placed and installed them in my car yesterday. I am beyond happy. The install went without a hitch. The results were fantastic. The new brakes track straight, make no noise, and stop the car authoritatively. The new rotors look pretty cool, which we all know isn't all that important, but having 6 women offer to bear your children, because your car looks SO cool is a good problem to have. Thank for great products and service.
