FTE Brake Caliper Kit Question


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Has anyone used the FTE caliper kits? They don't come with the metal retaining rings and I threw mine away. Do I just not need them with this kit? If I do, anyone know where to get them?

 

Here's the Kit

Here's my calipers. Seems like a tight fit for the ring:

Any experience appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Are the outer rims of the seals where the rings would have gone a harder rubber?

The 'new' way (like, about 2005) is to use a hard rubber ring with a little 'nib' on the inside

to retain the outside of the dust seal instead of a metal ring.
