AMG brake caliper brackets for the w124.

I had these made for a client project and thought I would share. More could be made and modified for different rotors if needed. These are for the AMG 6 piston calipers from the SLK/CLK up front using a 345mm rotor from the 4 piston caliper on the C32/C55. The idea was to use a much cheaper brake rotor and that more than offsets the cost of the brackets. Also the calipers were clocked as to not have to cut anything but the backing plate for caliper clearance.

Looks amazing! I'm guessing a 18 inch wheel will be needed?

they will technically fit under a 17 but it depends on the rim and the offset. I threw one on that I had and it was tight but the offset was wrong so the spokes would hit.

Neat. The cost of rotors is the only reason I don't have an E class AMG. This may make me reconsider.

What fits a W124 should also fit a R129 as they use the same spindles for the most part. I seem to remember the early 190 / W201 being able to interchange W124 / R129 front suspension as well.

Spindle to shock bolt diameter got bigger for later R129, the ABS wheel on the hub changed tooth count. These are the two changes I'd aware of.

They for sure would fit a 129 and a 201. Maybe others. I could easily offset them or change them for different diameter rotors. Once the basic diagram is done then moving them around a bit is not that hard. But they are one offs so they are not cheap. And they are left and right.
