Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

ShoeString,

What you did by rotating the sides is a no-no in the Brembo Bible. The calipers have different size pistons and must be put on in the proper direction. I considered the same thing till I did some reading. I cant recall all the reasoning but they have the smaller on first I recall and the larger one last for a reason.

See the piston size difference.

Thanks for that info Redline. I guess I'll swap them back how they should be and bust out the grinder!

Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

I have the v6 will I need new front and rear dust shields? Also, the brake line issue is just in the rear? The front can use the factory lines?

Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

So i'm getting ready to tackle the SRT brembo install on my non-srt.

I looked on rock auto and the part numbers for brake lines on the srt and non srt are the same??

I'm trying to not have to grind the rear calipers down to install if I can avoid it. Anyone know what the deal is? Are the factory rear brake lines actually different? This doesn't make sense.


Anyway ended up ordering good ridge stainless steel lines all around.

Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

I just completed this Brembo upgrade today on my 2014 grand cherokee ...as others have mentioned the rear stock lines need some grinding and they seem a bit short for my comfort so I ordered some new braided lines.

The calipers all bolted up no prob. I am running the SRT8 knock off "spider Monkey" 20x10's with 295/45/20 with the toyo st2 tires...but my luck...they sent the tires/rims with the wrong TPMS sensors installed...so now all the tires need to come off the rims. I have a set of 22" rims that I will be trying with this setup...I ran these on my stock setup but got the new rims/tires just to make sure I had a set that would fit .

This was a pretty straightforward conversion...it looks very nice overall as well

Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

Srt8 rear lines?

Anyone have the part # for the rear srt8 lines from a 2014?

Called a couple dealerships and they asked me for a vin# to find the part?

I don't have an srt so I was unable to get the part#..no vin # to look it up ..

I ordered some stop techs but I'd rather get the stock srt lines of possible

Thanks
