How can you improve the brakes on the Mercedes CLA45, GLA45, or A45 AMG? With Agency Power’s new front upgraded brake kit consisting of 2 piece drilled rotors, steel braided brake lines, and performance brake pads. The Mercedes A45, CLA45, and GLA45 platform with its 2.0L turbocharged engine is popular for gear heads looking to be fast on the street and track. Already equipped with a large 350mm 4 piston brake setup in the front from Mercedes Benz, there is still room for improvement. This new front brake upgrade retains the factory 350x32mm fitment for a direct bolt-on upgrade. Braking is one of the most overlooked upgrades by many horsepower seekers. Better braking means you can go faster into the turns, which gives you faster lap times to be ahead of your competition.
To improve your braking, you want to have better heat dissipation, even brake pad wear, and a firmer pedal feel. One of the biggest advantages of doing a brake upgrade is the rotational weight savings. The factory brake rotors weigh 27lbs. The solid disc surface lacks the performance of light weight 2 piece rotors. The Agency Power rotor weighs only 19.2 lbs which saves you 7.8 lbs per corner over stock. Rotational weight savings has an estimated factor of three. This is like taking 23.4 lbs of dead weight off each corner! Because the rotor features rotational drilled holes and more effective curved vanes, it helps dissipate heat away from the rotors. This design is used to improve cooling by pushing cool air from the center of the wheel to where the rotor needs it most. It also acts like a heat exchanger to carry heat away from the rotor. With the 2 piece rotor design and the improved cooling, the brakes pads have an even wear on both sides and almost no brake fade.
To further improve the brake pedal feel, we include a set of steel braided brake lines. The brake lines feature a Teflon line inside which the brake fluid flows through. With a steel braided casing and then a gel outside coating, there is no flex in the brake lines. Under pressure, the factory rubber lines can flex giving the brake pedal a mushy or soft feeling. It is always recommended to run a quality DOT4 brake fluid for optimal performance. Performance brake pads are also included to be used with the factory 4 piston calipers. These upgraded aggressive street pads are perfect for the weekend racer or those wanting some serious bite in their stopping power.
The Agency Power front brake upgrade for the Mercedes CLA 45, A 45, GLA 45 is a direct bolt-on application. It can work with all 45 AMG models from around the world. Whether you are looking for an advantage on the track or its time to replace your stock brake components due to wear and tear, this is the best option for your AMG. Each kit has been manufactured in-conjunction with one of the leading aftermarket brake companies to achieve high quality standards and has gone through rigorous testing. The kit is sold as a complete front axle setup. Replacement brake discs can be sold when necessary as the brake hat is not a consumable item.
