5 posts in this topic

Hey guys just curious about the dat sport front brakes. I have them setup so the caliper is to the front which seems to be different to everyone's. Which way is right and whats the reasoning behind it?

Cheers

Yeah I know it can be swapped over but don't want to have to. I was just curious as to y they should b at the rear. With them at the front they same to brake fine.

Unless you have swapped the rotors around, they will not clear the dust efficiently.

direction of slots.

Apart from that its just a few minor things.

Brakes will work no matter where the calipers are mounted.

My minor points, and they are minor:

Front mounted calipers are in the low pressure air zone & are shrouded by the rim,

cooling issue.

Calipers mounted to the rear do not get tangled up in sway bars & links.

Calipers to the rear are behind the centre of the wheels so balance is improved.

They look better ?????

Thanks baz. I knew there was a reason just wasn't sure. For now I'll leave them, and I'll swap the struts over at a later date. By the way those rear seat belts worked a charm.
