A properly-built suspension system will carry the weight of the vehicle and control the weight distribution of the vehicle. Factory standard OEM brakes can and do fade under heavy use and under heavy loads. The Ultimate Suspension can test your brakes under load and recommend the best option for your particular application.
Here's what you can expect when you choose an Ultimate brake upgrade using DBA rotors and pads.
I've owned three Landcruisers and I can't believe no one had recommended this upgrade until I met Ken at Ultimate Suspension. You HAVE to experience the difference the DBA rotor and pad upgrade makes to braking performance and overall driving comfort and safety. Hands down the best bang for buck upgrade you can do, believe it! - Richard
The function of a vehicle’s braking system is to safely, and in a controlled manner, reduce the speed of the vehicle or to bring it to a complete stop. Braking system upgrades provide significant improvement in brake performance and stopping power.
Factory braking systems typically include brake pads that are manufactured using inexpensive organic materials which carry a low temperature threshold. When brake system components are subject to extreme temperatures, brakes can "fade" and stopping distances can substantially increase.
In consideration of how critically important brakes are for vehicle performance and particularly safety, a brake upgrade is one of the best investments you can make.
Superior quality brake pads function better and last longer.
Our background in off-road racing has given us first-hand experience of the importance of dependable braking. What you may not know is that the abuse and heat produced from the forces applied in the race are similar to that generated under braking when towing.
We use and recommend DBA Xtreme Performance (XP) pads which are a semi-metallic compound. They give you the confidence of a high initial bite and a frictional consistency from low to high temperatures (up to 550oC). DBA Xtreme Performance (XP) is recommended for heavy towing and upgraded 4WDs.
In this case, a semi-metallic brake pad (like the DBA XP Pads) is the perfect companion for you. Their effectiveness over a wider range of temperatures, resistance to brake fade, and brake 'bite' makes them one of the best investments for your vehicle.
The Ultimate Suspension use and recommend DBA Street Performance (SP) pads. These feature a robust and resilient semi-metallic compound which provides better braking and a greater operating temperature range than OEM pads.
Brakes are one of the most critical components of any vehicle. Brake upgrades for safety and performance are always a good investment.
Our Ultimate brake upgrade packages include our SAE Certified, ADR Approved, and proudly Australian Made Stainless Steel Extended Brake Hoses. Our hoses maintain the consistency of your brake pedal and, unlike rubber hoses, they are resistant to cracking, swelling, blocking, blistering, and fracturing.
