Brembos on non SRT?

I have a set of brand new SRT Brembos from a Challenger I think it was. Anyone know what is involved in fitting them to a non SRT WH/WK?

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

you need caipers, which you have. brake lines. backing plates. and the mounts for the 2 calipers. i gues they call them spindles.

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

I have done the conversion---

You need the Brembo calipers, rotors, front spindles(knuckles), rear backing plates, all 4 brake lines, all mounting bolts and of course wheels that will clear the Brembos. Everything else is the same

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

Chally ones will be different though. The calipers are the same, but thats it. Different bolt pattern, so the rotors are different. Different suspension, so everything else is different.

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

the rear brembos will clear the rear wheels...the fronts aare the problem. He would need a pretty good spacer...and they would make the wheels stick out to far

He just said he has SRT Brembos. Didn't say which parts. The Calipers will work, but thats all. Everything else is different between the Jeep and LX/LC.

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

the calipers will work once he adds the rest of the parts I listed. The front spindles are expensive and very hard to find....or atleast they were 3 years ago when I did mine

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

Thanks very much for the information. Do only have a couple of pairs of the calipers and sold off another pair I had. Done a few brake conversions in the past for my XJ so have a set for that still as well. I take it the spindles are very expensive?

Re: Brembos on non SRT?

the salavge places want to sell you the complete knuckle IIRC from what scott was saying. so yeah its expensive.

but maybe if you had a list of all you want they might do it.

car-part.com and the phone are your friends....
