Post by: sandys on March 03, 2014, 02:35:14 pm
Need to put some new discs and pads on my car but the Evo SS has floating disc, what is involved in changing those?

Didn't even know the evo had floating discs, learn something new everyday.

Tmc seem to be the cheapest. About 575 plus vat and then pads are about 100 so best part of 700 notes for the pair. I believe they come assembled so just take of old ones and fit new ones.
They are brembo floating and drilled and brembo list a part number but not been able to get a price from anywhere apart from tmc or main dealer.

I was more interested in how you take them apart, put them back together again, as I guess new discs don't come with the bell housing.

I'm pretty sure they come assembled with bell, they are not just a rotor and bell as you probs know, They have springs to allow the disc to float. The old ones should make a nice beer coasters or clock ;-) give darron a call from tmc and he'll most likely confirm. Or phone Abarth parts guys.

I should be able to come back to you later with a part number as I've asked the parts guy at my local dealer for a price on some... They list two parts one for esseesse and one or standard but the prices are like 290 for a pair which sounds to me like the price for the drilled discs but defo NOT the floating. He's making a few enquiries

The whole point of a floating disc is that you only change the rotor itself, the bell stays in place..

Seems a little crazy (and expensive) replacing the whole thing each time?

That's not the whole point, its actually about weight saving and robustness (less tendency to warp) so its not too much of a stretch to think they might come built.

I've not chased it up yet, I don't really need the car this month so there is no rush.

Ok got it... Fiats part number 5743369 my dealer reckons 650 notes incl vat. Seems to fit in line with tmc Motorsport. I think normally dealer price is about 700 ish.
I'm gonna make a couple of calls to Italy as the euro is good at the mo and see if I can get any cheaper

That time of year again where I need new discs, anyone found a cheaper supplier for these than Abarth, £800 for discs is a bit steep really for my cars current use.
