CLASSIC JAGUAR BRAKE UPGRADES

CLASSIC JAGUAR BRAKE CONVERSION KITS

Braking in an emergency on classic Jaguars was always a hit & miss affair. The original Dunlop/Girling piston cylinders never provided the quality of braking that classic Jaguars needed.

Our conversion kits give you increased braking pressure and will therefore make your classic Jaguar stop faster for today’s driving conditions.

CLASSIC JAGUAR NON-VENTED FRONT BRAKE KIT

This 4 pot conversion kit fits straight on to your suspension uprights without any modification, utilising the original solid brake discs and brake hoses. This is a quick and easy conversion to fit and is supplied complete with brake pads.

It gives a 90% larger pad area, stainless steel pistons and a modern seal design.  These kits include a pair of new 4 pot calipers and a set of pads with pipes where applicable.

CLASSIC JAGUAR VENTED FRONT BRAKE KIT

We recommend this upgrade for the more enthusiastic driver as the vented discs create more efficiency under increasingly arduous use.  These brakes will take track days or mountain work in their stride and will transform the braking performance and feel of the car.
