Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

no bracket or dust shield. if you have a hemi, your dustshield works, i am unsure if the 3.6 has the same dust shield since the 3.6 has smaller brakes to begin with.

check these out btw

Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

All in how much did it cost to complete the upgrade? They would look great on my 2012 Altitude metallic gray

Re: Want to upgrade to Brembo

You will need 20 or 22" wheels that will fit. Stock Jeep GC non SRT 20" will not any way shape or form. I ddi run into a issue with rear brake lines. The banjo block needed to be ground flat so it would fit in the proper position. You can go the rebuilt caliper route is you can find the Centric rebuilt ones.

The stock 20s may work with a spacer. No one has tried it yet.
According to the measurements I received from another member a 1.25" spacer should allow for plenty of clearance.

Could always just do the fronts. They do 70 to 80% of braking lol
