Product Details

We are excited to bring a low-cost performance brake modification to your Mazdaspeed3! The Damond Motorsports Caliper Bushings have many amazing benefits over the factory style rubber slide bushings. Each bushing is machined to very tight tolerances to allow significantly less caliper deflection under braking. This in turn leads to many performance gains, that you can actually feel and experience on your car. Whether you daily drive or track/race your vehicle, you'll be confident in your stopping ability with the Damond Motorsports Caliper Bushings. 

Brake bushing benefits:

  • Improved pedal feel
  • Improved brake modulation
  • Improved braking response
  • More even pad wear
  • More even rotor wear
  • Longer maintenance intervals compared to non-sealed bushings

Brake bushings info:

  • Sold per axle, 2 bushings per caliper, 4 bushings per kit/axle
  • Available for both front and rear calipers
  • Features an o-ring grove and are supplied with caps to prevent moisture, dust, and debris into the bushing
  • Machined out of Brass, and we include high-temp o-rings & caps, and stainless snap-rings

Immediate hard braking

Parts are simple, install was easy. It really takes all the slop out of braking. My MS3 is taken care of and has less than 60k miles, and these made a huge difference. Braking response is immediate, and stopping is linear again. I highly recommend this mod!

Yet Another Home-Run Product - Exceeds My Expectations and Top-Quality

I used these bushing (both front and rear) as part of an entire brake job. I already had the Stoptech braided lines on the car. A professional race shop did the full install - they are brake/suspension gurus, and literally do track-side support every week, so I know the job was done right. Parts used:

Brand-new High-Carbon Centric Front and Rear Rotors
Hawk HPS Front and Rear Pads
Motul 5.1

*Instructions were followed to a "T"; system was cross-bled due to the Speed 3 criss-cross brake line/ABS system routing.*

My setup is a performance-DD concept, not a track-car yet (which guided my pad/fluid selection), and my aim is for a street-performance edge, with pad, fluid, and rotor life prioritized over maximum braking performance. This is why I wasn't going with EBC Yellows or Carbotech XP14s, 12s, 10s, etc., and something like Motul 660 (great track fluid, but needs changed every 6 months or they won't even let you on the road courses down here).

Having said this, I got exactly what I was looking for: a much firmer pedal feel and I haven't experienced fade yet. The brakes are still breaking in (it's only been a week), and as many know, I don't have the characteristic initial bite of the factory Carbotech pads. Regardless, the feel is very firm, progressive, and easy to modulate—braking goals totally accomplished!

I'm a Damond Motorsports customer for life, and for good reason: they hit another home-run with this product. Thanks, Matt, Farhan, and company!

Great Product - Vastly Improved Pedal Feel

I used these as part of an entire brake job. I already had the Stoptech braided lines (got for a steal on Rock Auto). Anyways, a professional race shop did the full install - they are brake/suspension gurus, and literally do track-side support every week. Parts used:

Brand-new High-Carbon Centric Front and Rear Rotors
Hawk HPS Pads
Motul 5.1
Instructions for the bushings were printed/followed to a "T", system was cross-bled due to how our brake/ABS line routing.

My setup is performance-DD, not track-based (pad/fluid selection) emphasizing a performance edge with pad, fluid, and rotor life over going with EBC Yellows or Carbotech XP14s, 12s, 10s, etc., and something like Motul 660 (great track fluid, but needs changed every 6 months or they won't even let you on courses down here.

Having said this, I got exactly what I was looking for: much firmer pedal feel, and I haven't experienced fade yet. The brakes are still breaking in (it's only been a week), and as many know, though I don't have the characteristic initial bite of the factory Carbotechs, the feel is very firm, progressive, and easy to modulate.

A Must when replacing brakes

A week before installing my EBC Red pads and rotors, Damond Motorsports released these bushings. So I bought a set, because after 132,000 miles, upgrade all the things.

Got help from local Nator installing these because basically I'm broken. Install went smooth, using the instructions as a guideline. We did some changes to how we did it, but in they went. Then found rear calipers leaking. But after install, the brakes were night and day, even without a bleed and bad calipers. The pedal just felt smoother.

Fast forward 1 fortnight, and a pair of 49k calipers were installed, the bushings swapped over. Even smoother braking! I've put 700 total miles on them, and very happy with my purchase.
