PowerStop: Don’t Overtighten Aluminum Calipers

May 7, 2020


Aluminum calipers function just like their iron counterparts; however, they are lighter and softer.

Aluminum caliper housings are more sensitive to over torquing than iron calipers. Be sure to double check the recommended torque specifications for your application prior to tightening the caliper bolts.

Use a torque wrench and the recommended thread locking compound when appropriate.
