Brake Torque Information

Going to be upgrading my pads, rotors, lines, and fluid this week. I can't seem to find the torque specs for the caliper bolts and lines . Does anyone have a service manual handy or point me to where I can find this information?

If it makes any difference, it's for the HD brakes from a summit diesel

Thanks!

Re: Brake Torque Information

If you don't mind me asking, what lines did you get?

I just finished upgrading my brakes to the powerstop drilled & slotted rotors with the Hawk HPS pads. Stopping power is much better but I know it could get better by upgrading to stainless steel brake lines with a fluid flush of DOT4 as I believe the GC comes with DOT3 as standard.

Re: Brake Torque Information

I bought the goodridge lines. I have used them in the past and have had great results. Also upgrading to ATE Brake Fluid. It's a shame they no longer sell Super Blue ATE in the States because it's not "DOT" compliant. It was always easy to tell when you were flushing from one fluid to the next. Super Blue for one change, then standard amber for the next, and so on.

Re: Brake Torque Information

Do the goodridge lines come with a vinyl or Teflon coating on the stainless steel braided lines?

As for the ATE super blue, there's a place here I Toronto, a tuner shop, that stills sells them but it's crazy expensive at $30 + our 13% sales tax for a Liter nowadays that's it's illegal here in Canada too. For my Daily driver I'll opt for a standard DOT4.

Re: Brake Torque Information

the line inside is teflon, however I do not believe there is an outside coating on top of the stainless steel shell

So the goodridge lines are an utter fail. I'm not sure if Jeep changed the specifications of the length of the head on the hardline side to a different spec. Basically the female side of the goodridge line is too deep and the hardline male part doesn't bottom out and seal. I thought I broke the flange at first, but I put on the stock line and everything is fine.

Not wanting to make a broad statement for all years, but the goodridge lines are no good for the 2014 Grand Cherokee. if you have a grinder or a lathe you can trim down the female side of the connection so the hardline side can bottom out, but it's a risk I didn't want to take with my lines and kept it as stock.

Re: Brake Torque Information

Well here's the final product. EBC Yellowstuff and stop tech slotted rotors. Still in the process of mating disc to pad before a proper bed in, but pedal feel and sensitivity are hugely improved. Once the rotor loses the factory cross hatching I'll report back after bedding in.

The install is quite easy and straightforward. Didn't even need to remove slider pins. Once the spring clip is removed there is enough space to put the pads in. Just takes a little work to get those clips out.
