Brake Discs

I run a 2005 K series on an imperial chassis.

Can some one inform me if the brake calipers fitted to my car (both front and rear) are specific to the Caterham or are they the same as fitted to other cars and how best to source when required.

Ditto with regards to brake pads - car road use onlyt 

My discs are standard units.

... and how best to source when required.

I'd talk to Redline.

...

Fronts are/ were Girling Type 14, as used on the Spitfire. Rears are/ were as used on the Sierra.

...

Apart from upgrades there has been discussion of using Golf rears in order to save mass.

Be careful with fitting the VW rears. They have smaller diameter pistons!

Thanks

I can I assume the front brakes also use the spitfire disc's.

Are the rears any model year Ford Sierra.

So are these the ones supplied by Caterham or are there Caterham specific

Standard brakes disks are the same front and rear. Try James Paddock ref 208715

These fit on my '93 imperial car running standard caterham supplied calipers (front and rear)

EBC also did a discount code on their website somewhere.

For a front caliper I fitted this in 2016. The car is a 2003 SV:

I think I also fitted a pair of EBC discs and pads at the front but I'm not 100% certain.
