1978-1987 Buick Regal (All Models) -
BAER SS4+ FRONT BRAKES AND SPINDLES UPGRADE SYSTEM
We offer Baer Brakes new front brake system upgrade, complete with modified front spindles included. No cores are required, making this an easy bolt-on upgrade.
Works with all 1986 and 1987 stock T-Type wheels and Grand National wheels.
The new calipers are aluminum, compared to stock cast iron, which has better heat sink to dissipate heat. Rotors are specific left and right 11″ curved-vane design which, when they rotate, act as a pump to cool the brakes down. Stock rotors are not left and right specific and are straight vane.
Aluminum hub, unlike the stock, which was cast iron and was part of the rotor. This is built like a modern brake where the rotor slides over the hub. Timken/SKF bearings are installed in the hubs.
Common brake pads (Hawk HB100) pads are available in a wide variety of compounds, and are readily available from Summit or Jegs.
Calipers have dust seals just like the OE calipers. Includes stainless braided front brake hoses and billet aluminum dust caps. The calipers are available in three powder-coated colors - red (#7537), silver (#7538), or black (#7539). Be sure to order the correct part # for the color you want when ordering.
Rotors come fully dressed with a slot, drilled, and a zinc-plated finish.
Each comes pre-assembled on modified stock G-body spindles, ready to install on the vehicle.
Years ago we used to offer an earlier version of this Baer system, which required the stock spindles be sent in as cores. This is a superior brake system to the system we used to sell. This system was specifically designed for heavy fast cars, making stopping distances far quicker than factory. It works well with the original powermaster brake system.
The stock brake system is no different than what Buick installed on a regular aspirated V6 during those years.
