    C70 Brakes.

    Hi all,
    This has prob been asked somewhere before (But I can't find it).

    I have a 2004 C70 2.4T GT Auto convertible.

    At the moment it has the standard 280mm front brakes. (All Volvo bits).

    I wish to upgrade them, and have been told that the basic upgrade would be just the Carriers and 302mm Discs.

    Is this correct ? if so what are the part numbers of the bits I require ? Are there any others ?

    Also could I source the parts second hand, from a P1 V70 say ? are there any others that will fit.. COST is very important, needs to be low.

    cheers,
    Joe.

    Hi Joe

    I would suggest you obtain a set of secondhand carriers and use new discs and pads. Used carriers will set you back about 30 the pair

    some people say you don't need them, but i'd get the longer brake-lines as well. Its a perfect time to upgrade to braided & i don't think you can skimp when it comes to messing with brakes

    i agree - if you're going to do this I would full service the brake lines, put braided lines on (they're not that expensive) and put new fluid in.
