Re: Rear Brembo brake upgrade on a Limited WK

I forget the exact distance...but the SRT w/brembos stops in a much shorter distance than the wk. I have the complete brembo conversion and the difference is VERY apparent.

Re: Rear Brembo brake upgrade on a Limited WK

nice dude! Im sure it looks good, in color of course haha. Do the fronts, then you will REALLY notice a difference if you haven't already. Red calipers always look good imo, contrast is nice Glad to see you save some pennies and did it yourself too, def a good feeling knowing you did it on your own, +1

The actual work for the rear Brembos wasn't that hard. I had to remove the old calipers, rotors, hub bearings and backing plates and replace them with SRT ones, except the hub bearings which can be re-used. You will also need the Brembo brake hoses and a set of pads. Then bleed the system by doing the entire job on the rear passenger side first, then move over to the rear driver's side. The Brembos have two bleeding screws so you bleed the inside one first. I paid $300 a piece for the calipers which included the brake hoses. As they are 09 bright red ones they were in excellent condition. The backing plates were $200 a piece and the rotors were $150 for the two. This cost can however come down considerably if you are able to get a couple backing plates off a salvaged SRT instead of having to buy new ones like I did. The backing plates are different between the WKs and the SRTs and have to be swapped for this mod. I would not go used for rotors or pads so, add the cost of new brake pads into this; prices for these vary. It really looks cool and they do stand out!
