2015-2023 Mustang GT Performance Pack - GT350 Racing Front Brake Locking Retainer Pin Set
Replacement Pad Retainer Pins in Higher Temperature Stainless Steel with Locking Clips to prevent Pin Loss under Racing Conditions.
We have seen issues with the OEM pins backing out of the caliper due to a failure of the spring steel retainer losing it's tension which allows the pins to work themselves out while on track. As the brake pad is applied to the rotor during braking, the movement and torque of the pad moves the pin, eventually far enough that it no longer holds the brake pad in the proper position. This can cause loss of braking and damage to the caliper, rotor and wheel assembly.
What we have discovered is overtime the excessive heat cycling from on track use causes the spring steel friction ring to shrink. The ring no longer grips the inside of the hole with sufficient friction and the pin can work it's way out.
We have designed a simple retaining system that is easy to install, provides a very obvious visual clue by looking through the wheel during a walk-around inspection, giving you peace of mind that the pins are in position and the locking clips we provide are in place before heading back out on track.
Our kit is available in two versions:
OE Style that retains the spring clip but includes our locking pin modification and
Our Race Version, that provides a hammer free brake pad inspection or replacement. The Race version eliminates the failure prone spring clip all together and allows you to feel the pin seat in the caliper and it does not require you to swing a hammer at your caliper.
Options are in the drop down menu.
Kits include 4 modified Stainless Steel Pins, 6 locking clips because we know our customers will loose them eventually and 4 washers to make up any gap due to manufacturing differences. From what we have seen most will not require the washers.
Replacement locking clips are available individually.
