These are identical to the Silver Arrow brakes except for the color... real Silver Arrows are painted silver front & rear, these are black front and unpainted rears. All four calipers are in very good condition and include good used OE front brake pads, and new Axxis rear brake pads (not shown in photos). Also included are new wear sensors, brake paste, decals, and new mounting bolts for the rear calipers.
Rotors are NOT included - I can supply part numbers so you can purchase either solid or drilled rotors from your favorite MB parts vendor. I can also provide OE brake pad part numbers so you can look up the various aftermarket pads available. Rotor sizes are:
Front: 334mm x 32mm
Rear: 300mm x 22mm
These brakes are a bolt-on upgrade for all 1992-1995 400E, 500E, E420, and E500 E-class models; as well as R129 SL-class models from 1990 through 1998, including the 300SL, 500SL, 600SL, SL320, SL500, and SL600. The brakes can be made to fit all other 1986-1995 W124's (E-class) and 1984-1993 W201's (190E/190D) with additional modifications (see Note 2 below). 17-inch wheels are required to clear the front Brembo calipers, and some models may need trimming of the rear dust shields - again, email me with your exact year/model and I can tell you if any mods are required.
These calipers are the ONLY factory Brembos larger than 300mm which fit correctly on the W124 / R129 / W201 chassis, using factory rotors, hoses, and hardware - with no Mickey-Mouse modifications.
Front lower control arms (LCA) with non-replaceable ball joints are required for clearance of the larger 334mm rotors, as shown in this photo
. If your car has the early type LCA's with replaceable ball joints, you will need to swap to the late style LCA's. All US-spec 124.032, .034, .052, and .066 chassis already have the correct LCA's; as do all 129.076. For 124.036 and 129.066/067 it depends on the year/VIN/options. All other W124/R129 models, and I believe all years/models of W201 will need the control arm swap. Again, email me with your vehicle info and I can probably tell you which LCA's came from the factory on your car.
/ obo plus S&H. International shipping ok if you pay with PayPal. I will sell the fronts separately if you don't need the rears. I have sold about a dozen of these kits over the past few years, contact me directly for photos and current availability.
