    Good point. Would there be a market for just front 4p Brembo calipers and rotors? What would a fair market price be? My car has travelled 10,000 km.

    I'm sure there would be, plenty of folks who wouldn't mind upgrading a standard SS to redline specs etc.

    I had a look around on eBay and the like, most sales are for either new or secondhand fronts AND backs. What do you suggest might be a fair price for callipers, pads, rotors (and lines), for the fronts....? I am not sure I should even sell/include the lines?

    Happy for anyone to chime in.

    I think they fit under VEII and VFI Redline forged.

    Looks great. Much room between the caliper and wheel spokes ?

    not a lot, but I've just ordered new Koya SF06 20" x 9.5" +38 fronts, be a fair amount with those, I'm guessing.

    Mounting face protrusion is 43mm and distance outward from hub centre to max protrusion is 140mm

    They look sensational. Interested to hear a braking performance review.

    It may be a runout issue? Did you clean and remove any debris from the hub face and torque the calipers bolts to the correct torque setting?
    I also find applying a thin smear of hi-temp brake grease to the edges of the pads and between the pads and the pistons stops any squealing.

    The calipers, rotors and pads/braided lines were fitted at a brake specialist. I'm pretty sure they'd know to torque and clean.

    I asked them this morning, they suggested its the bedding-in issue. They sprayed anti-squeal on the back of the plates.

    They sprayed it when they fitted, so I guess not. If it does not bed in and quieten down in the next week, I will either change pads or put some high-temperature silicone anti-squeal on the back of the plate.

    Brake pad squeal is a bit of a badge of honour of using a good pad. Can be annoying tho. Perhaps just champher the edge of the pad just a little bit which can help. A pad like ferodo ds2500 is prob a good track capable pad that lives on the road nicely with moderate dust and pad wear.

    Don’t go the Brembo std pads they are not great for hard use and can make the pads smoke hard like Keith Richards after 1 hard stop.
