      R brake upgrade parts list / considerations


      I'm researching how to do an upgrade to R brakes on a 2006 2.5T AWD and have one or two questions someone here might be able to help me with... really I just want to make sure I have all the necessary hardware accounted for before I start, so if anyone can back me up and make sure I'm not missing anything, I'd appreciate it. Or if anyone has any tips / recommendations I'd love to hear them too. Also, this might help out anyone else considering the same upgrade:

      1. 4x calipers (can't forget those...with spring clips and guide pins)
      2. 4x 330mm rotors, pads (probably oem or brembo rotors and akebono pads from forum recommendations)
      3. 2x front "impulse limiters" aka steering stop arms (left=30748624, right=30748625) (these appear to be different than those on the 2.5T so I don't think I can reuse mine)
      4. Caliper bolts (also different than 2.5T hardware) (front top = 985345, front lower = 985428, rear upper and lower = 985453)
      5. 2x Oscillation dampers for the front, (identical for left and right = 9485145)
      6. R dust shields (should attach with a single screw which I can reuse off my current shields if I'm correct).
      7. 8x rubber bleeder screw caps
      8. 8x pad backing plates


      Thanks all, rock on.

      I believe all the impulse limiters are the same. I pulled one from an SR and compared it to a mundane S60. They were identical, same part number. Now, that's not to say Volvo didn't change things at some point.

      The front dust shields are okay. The rears won't work. The R rear dust shields were larger. You can cut the lip off the original shields.

      The list looks pretty complete.

      When I did my upgrade, I reused parts from my T5 (which are different than a 2.5T)
      I only needed
      1. 4x calipers
      2. 4x 330mm rotors, pads
      6. R dust shields (only the rear shields, front I reused)
      7. 8x rubber bleeder screw caps
      8. 8x pad backing plates

      While you're in there it makes sense to replace the parking shoes in the rear, as well as upgrading to SS brake lines (I went with the ones off FCP)
