VTT ultimate E8/9X ultimate rear brake conversion kit
VTT is happy to announce its new rear brake conversion kits for the E8X/E9X platforms. We take what already exists on the market, and make it much more complete, and much more performance-oriented while keeping the clearance for those 15” wheels. This kit replaces your rear brake rotors and calipers to fit 15″ wheels. It includes lightweight Wilwood calipers to go from the single-piston factory caliper to race-inspired 4 Piston calipers. While dropping up to a whopping 20 LBS of unsprung weight off the back of your vehicle!
Please choose your model option to ensure proper rotor fitment.
PLEASE NOTE THE 135 CROSSED DRILLED ROTORS CURRENTLY ONLY FIT WITH NO E-BRAKE. THE PLAIN ROTORS WE HAVE FOR THE 135 FIT WITH THE E-BRAKE INSTALLED. IF ORDERING FOR A 135, AND YOU WANT TO RUN THE E-BRAKE CHOOSE PLAIN ROTORS.
The kit consists of:
- 2 Rotors (Plain or Cross drilled) Plain are Centric 125 Series, and Cross Drilled are Genuine Stop-Tech rotors
- 2 Wilwood 4 Piston Calipers
- 1 set of high-performance Wilwood street pads. (option to remove the pads, and get your own compound pads)
- All hardware required for the swap, including brackets. bolts, and adapter fittings
- Stainless Steel upgraded rear brakes lines as an option
These kits will bolt directly on to the chassis specified, BUT many different 15” wheels in many different offsets exist, we cannot guarantee this will clear your wheel/tire combo without some clearance. We can 100% say they clear Weld RTS 15×10 as this is what we tested on.
