Re: Suspension and Brake for B-Class.
Hi there,

I'm not familiar with the B series sangat but here's what you can do :

Lowering :
You can get either H&R or Eibach spring set. It will lower the car approximately 25mm FF and ca.20mm RR.

Fit better dampers (shock absorbers) to match your shorter springs. Bilstein B8s or Sachs Sports (if you can find them) or Koni adjustbales.

Or...

Get a Bilstein B12 Kit, which is in essence Bilstein B8 Sports dampers + H&R Blues Springs. Your car will be lower and the springs and dampers are well matched.

Brakes :
Ask yourself whether you really need a disc brake upgrade ?? Once you slap on the lowering kit plus dampers, you'll find your braking to be better anyways since the stiffer setup will negate nosedive to a certain extent, thus improving your braking distance. Change your brake pads to better ones and it may just do the trick. Porterfileds/EBC or the Jappo Project Miu...all are good....Just make sure you have good tyres...

BUT..if you still insist....ask around at Sunway (plenty of tuners there) whether they stock upgraded brake kits for the B series. If you can find a potong shop that has a B200T...better still, just use those brakes....
Advice : No use putting out BBK of 300mm> for a standard car.

Re: Suspension and Brake for B-Class.
Thanks alot for the sugestion. At least now i have a direction to go to. But most tuners at sunway cost a bomb. My brake disc is rusting thus making a very loud noise everytime i brake. Thats why i thought of changing the whole thing, almost every B-Class suffers from this problem. As for my suspension how much would it cost? An estimation would do. :)

Tmy,

Rusty brakes ? You ain't using it enuff* !!
(I have never heard of rusty brakes unless the car just been washed and the rust will go away after a few applications of the brakes.)

Now, for the squealing/screeching ..What you can do...find an empty stretch of road. Go 80km/h minimum and whack the brakes... Make sure it's on a dry road lah....Your ABS will kick on shortly but keep pressing the brakes hard.....

Do it a couple of times and the pads will bite into the discs and 'bed' in. Lepas tuh...bawa macam biasa to cool the brakes. Do NOT do the exercise on a public highway ka...kawasan perumahan ka.....do it in a safe environment...

Do the same exercise if and whenever you change new brake pads. The only way to bed the pads in properly.


Cost of the B12 kits would be ca.2800-3500. Just prepare 3bucks fiddy lah....

For disc brakes, ain't worth it to change upsized ones unless you modified your car with extra 30bhp ka...Worse case scenario (*in case your discs are really and badly 'warped'), just change the disc brakes for ca.300-400bucks a pair. Buy new pads as well.

Dude,

It's NOT a brake flush thing...Brake flushing is also called Brake Bleeding which means changing the brake fluid.

Now, what I told ya to do is called 're-bedding' of the brakes. Sometimes the brakes are not used hard enough or some outside elements (sand particles etc.)got lodged in between the brake pads and disc/rotor. These will scour the brakes and you'll see deep circular lines around the discs. Bear in mind, HARD Race Pads do the same thing to disc rotors but in racing we replace the discs ever so often.

Now,

By bedding in the brakes again, you'll get the pads to align itself/sit properly on the discs. Get the mechanic to take the pads off and sand down the pads with grit paper, refit and get him to bed the brakes for you....

You will NOT do harm to the brakes or disc rotors. Your tyres will not go bald...heck..it will not even have a flat spot since your car has ABS.

Brakes are very important. Get on it ASAP.
