I'm the new owner of a Range Rover Sport 4.2 Supercharged (2006) with Brembo brakes.
Now I have highway 20" wheels with 275/40 tires. I like to drive off-road in mud and water, no racing on the beach.
So I would like to have smaller offroad wheels like 18" with larger mud tires. But...
Hi all, I have read a lot of threads regarding the retrofit of the bigger Brembo brake calipers that are standard on the supercharged/autobiography/SVR L494s. In case you haven’t read elsewhere, they are indeed a bolt on upgrade. Assume this is similar if not identical to the L405 as well.
I have an 3.0 Diesel HSE and the brakes are a bit to be desired. Low pedal feel and poor stopping quality. It brakes well, there are no vacuum problems, but "she is heavy" so who knows. I'm used to Jag Supercharged braking.
Can I swap a Brembo setup from a SC Range Rover or Sport? Will they...
Has anyone else had the two big bolts that hold the brake caliper to the axle fall out? I lost one about 2000 km ago and had it replaced then today the other one fell out, stripping the threads as it left. No brake work done recently so I can't understand why they would suddenly loosen.
I know previous years came with Brembo brakes. Do the 2010-2012 supercharged's use them as well? Also what are you guys seeing in terms of time/miles between replacements? Just or comparison what have you all paid for them to be replaced? Dealership was usually $1200 an axel and...
Has anyone had experience with the OEM brake kit (from Atlantic British) vs. Brembo Aftermarket (from New Parts)?
$1049 vs. $423
I'm sick of the brake dust from the the OEM set. Any input is appreciated.
Anyone else feel like their pedal travel is a little too long until anything happens?
I have new(er) pads and new rotors, they’re OE LR. Approximately 5,000 miles on them.
Has anyone bled the brakes on these beasts? Should I use a vacuum bleeder and will I need to use the IIDTool?
Has anyone used the late model RR Brembo "Air Ducts"
Has anyone used the late model RR Brembo "Air Ducts" on earlier models?
To my knowledge the 06-13 model years didn't have the bolt on pieces that they call "Air Ducts"(see pic). I believe that these are only found on 14 and up model years...
My RR is White and currently in progress of rebuilding the brakes(rotors and pads and re-paint calipers), so need advise which color to paint the calipers, I don't want anything really "bright" like red, I was thinking about white, light silver, black. What do you think? Thank you.
Does anyone know where I can get parts in the UK to overhaul the Brembo callipers on my 07 TDV8; it has done 186k and they could do with a refresh? I have searched the forum and internet without success!
Many thanks in anticipation.
i got a rrs supercharged and i checked the front brakes and their nice dark blue brembo brake and caliper i checked the back and their stock tinny ones anyone know where i can find rear brembo brakes 06 model thanks :-?
2010 Range Rover Sport HSE. I am looking to save a little money over the Genuine LR replacement brake pads and rotors.
It appears the OEM LR pads are made by Ferodo, and Ferodo offers aftermarket pads - PN FBD4104 (Front) = LR051626, FBD1613 (REAR) = LR55454 (supersedes LR015519). Has...
