Mazdaspeed3 Brake Caliper Bushings
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
I was having issues with my calipers tearing up my rotors. This has solved the issue! They were a lot cheaper than a new caliper too
Love the product everything fit really well and works great. As per usual the guys at damond have made an inexpensive and useful upgrade that ill use for many years to come .cant wait to get my next item in the not too distant future from these guys!
Just upgraded all brake components and went with these to make a solid package
I purchased both front and rear bushes, they arrived in Australia in seven days. I installed them tonight and didn't even have to take the rear calipers completely off. Install was simple, everything went in as it should. Took the car for a drive and noticed vast improvement in both pedal feel and breaking performance. Excellent product, Thanks Damond Motorsports. I will definitely buy Damond Motorsports products again.
Thus far I’ve only installed the rears and I haven’t driven the car because the front suspension is completely out of it. I can say that the rears went in easily and the calipers slide freely. There is clearly less play in the movement of the calipers. I would be shocked if brake feel wasn’t improved.
I do wish there was a second groove for the snap rings to locate these bushings more precisely in the rear calipers as there is some tendency for the calipers to slide on the bushings instead of the slide pin (I assume the groove is machined to the correct spacing for the front calipers).
I also wish there was a second groove inside the bushings to locate the second O-ring as I have installed them but I have no way of knowing where they sit on the slide pin and how much the load from the pin is distributed across the length of the slide pin.
Otherwise, shipping was fast and I’m eager to get my car driving again so I can test these.
Hi Todd, thank you for your feedback! The snap-ring grove is placed to allow fitment on many calipers, as well as act as a fail safe if the pin is seized. Also those o-rings included are spares. They are intended to only be replacements for the o-rings already installed in the bushings.
