NEW type of Camaro SS Caliper Brake Noise Dampener “Weights” implemented?
Posted by: admin In: Main ()
Are we looking at a new form of brake noise dampener for the Brembo brakes on the Camaro SS? Early build Camaro SS models had brake “weights” attached to the caliper. According to GM, with a high-performance vehicles like the Camaro SS, minor brake noise is not uncommon and the weights acted as a damper to reduce noise in certain driving conditions. This was done after careful evaluation and validation by the Camaro engineering team.
One issue resulting from these larger dampeners is the difficulty they may present in fitting smaller sized wheels (than factory wheels), such as track or winter wheels.
If these are indeed a new version of brake noise dampeners, we’re not sure why the change in its form from the previous dampeners. If anyone has a good guess, we’d love to hear it HERE.
