Whatcha. I have within the last 18 months replaced the calipers on Dreadnaught with brembo remanufactured asin components. Two companies who have a good reputation for quality. So why then have I had to free off a slider again? Because it is a stupid design. And relaxed.

Question. Has anyone found a compatible multi piston caliper that doesn't have any slides that could be used ideally with the existing or slightly modified mounting system and possibly the diesel ventilated rotors? Not talking big brakes and Porsche calipers just something a bit more reliable and simple.

Thanks in advance.

I found these when I was pushing for a bigger engine...


Very pretty and look like they would stop a bus..... but a tad expensive at £1500 for the full Jimny kit.
I was aiming at around 180bhp when considering these..

HOW MUCH?! It's not that important. No I was thinking something like a Subaru 4 pot assuming it would clear the wheels and the rest of the fitment. Thanks for sharing those though, a last resort maybe.

The Vitara calipers have sliders but they slide on a bolt, so you undo the bolt regularly and can grease it easily.

They're the same as SJ calipers and I never had issues or have ever heard of issues with them. So I can see why you want them but there's no need. I've been through the same thought processes.

Oh! That is even more useful. I have looked at them in pictures and not registered the bolt at the sliding element. Thanks.

Due to the shortage of early Vitara calipers to allow fitting vented discs on the front.

I drew up a bracket so that Golf 2.0TD calipers could be used...cheaper to buy new calipers than pry some early vit calipers from someone......and they usually require a rebuild anyhoo.

Essential for spirited driving and 200hp+ Jimny's :D

And they then run the ventilated diesel front disc?

I'd only be after the brackets and would buy new calipers anyway.
