Performance Calipers - Fixed and Floating Styles

The Wilwood D8-6 Caliper Kit. Like many Performance fixed calipers, other upgraded components are included. Here, the caliper comes with a set of performance pads and upgraded stainless steel brake lines. 


  In contrast, a fixed caliper remains stationary over the center of the brake rotor. By definition, there are a minimum of two pistons, one on each side of the housing. But because this type of caliper is geared specifically for high performance, you'll come across 4-, 6-, and 8-piston fixed calipers most commonly in our Performance calipers section. In short, fixed calipers are larger, stronger, and exert more stopping power.
