Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

Scott,

Do you have the part #'s for a complete setup? Is the adapter plate on the rear stock for the SRT8's?

Got any pics from the install?

Thanks man,
Escape

Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

sorry bro...I dont online. The calipers are the brembos from any SRT8. The rotors are Jeep SRt specific. The spindles are also Jeep SRT specific. The backing plates for the rear are easily found new. I have a lost at home in paper form I will try to find Monday for ya if youre serious

LOL...me serious about mods, nah...lol

I have located 2 totaled SRT8's and I plan on stripping these puppies for whatever I can get suspension wise...and then buying whatever else is needed (complete swap). The other day while I was going out to a friends wedding I drove right buy the Brembo Factory...So I'm going to swing in there and see about a Big brake setup from them, so I can seriously stop this thing!

Found these for the front upgrade:

15" Gran Turismo Brake System 8 piston, 380x34 2-Piece Floating Slotted or Drilled rotor


Getting the Jeep moving is no problem at all...once I'm all done in the performance area I'm thinking stopping from speeds might become an issue.

No hurry on the info man, will do this before next spring as I still have quite a list left of mods to do. I'm just researching for this one.

Thanks man,
Escape

Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

I'd like to see you go for a really serious upgrade, something much more serious than the SRT brembos
I reckon 400mm slotted front rotors with floating alloy hats, with six piston front and four piston rear monobloc calipers would be just the ticket
Get those SRT boys drooling!

** i know folks will come on and say put 12 piston calipers or whatever on, but before you do, more pistons don't neccessarily equal more power

Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

even if you buy that Brembo upgrade...your still gonna need the SRT spindles and rear plates.......

I think the SRt Brembos would stop you just fine instead of paying $4k for that package

Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

^^^the reason I say this is because that kit isnt available for the WK as far as I know.

Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

There's a guy that ran one in targa Newfoundland a couple of years ago, from memory that SRT had a monster upgrade, so it can be done, but yes, might not be 'off the shelf".
And yes, the stock SRT package is probably quite good, but if you really want to lean on them, they won't be up to it. Not many factory packages are, heck, we cracked the rotors and even the pads on the R35 GTR's first track day, and they're 8 spot Brembo with 380mm rotors and alloy hats!
I'm just saying going an step or two further than just SRT Brembos would get several + rep from me! lol

Any info on this 400mm setup Ben?

True on the spindles/hubs for the front and I will need the whole rear setup aswell from the SRT8 along with upgraded sways and springs...everything!

The issue isn't stopping once as I'm sure they would just fine...it's fade that is my concern.

True it's only available for the SRT8 Fronts found here:
http://www.buybrakes.com/brembo/gt-apps-Jeep.html

Nothing for the Rear in the GT line...probably due to our Top-hat rear rotor/brake design (parking brake)

I'm going to go talk to them and see if they have any plans for the WK as their factory is just down the road a bit. They make a set for the silverado/tahoe, Ram 1500, the full line of Chargers/Challengers/300/Magnums...just nada for the WK...

Re: NON SRT8 Jeep WK with Jeep SRT8 Brembo calipers and rotors

I don't believe there is a kit available, but I would suggest Brembo would be interested in developing an SRT8 upgrade kit as it could be a developing market with so many going so fast now.
If Brembo wasn't, the parts can be manufactured by any competent machine shop, ie, make a hat and caliper adaptor block to allow fitment of an off the shelf *any brand* caliper and 400mm rotor.

To fit a 400mm setup, you would need an alloy hat to suit a WK stud pattern. Like I say above, if not available, they can be modified or milled to suit.
It would look something like one of these; (the versions here that have more of a "drum" shape are used on the rear to allow the use of the standard internal drum style handbrake on most cars.


This is the 400mm rotor we fitted to the front of the R35;


And remembner, no need to buy new. true high performance calipers of many brands are available ex US for quite reasonable prices. The benefit of this style of MONOBLOCK caliper pictured is the performance really IS much stronger than Brembo's OE supplied calipers to most manufacturers. Truthfully, calipers are not all created equal, many people who aren't into racing simply aren't aware of this.
Ex Indycar calipers are very readily available, and are very commonly used on serious track cars.
