WK2 SRT Brembo brake kit on an Overland
 
Does anyone know if it will be possible to put the SRT 8 brembo 4 wheel brake kit on the Overland?

If so how would I go about doing this and anyone know ball park costs? My dealer here was as helpful as a corpse answering this.

Do you have the 6 or 8? Is this for performance or just cosmetics? I only ask because I have the hemi with towing package which has the heavy duty brakes and my brakes are really strong!

I have the 6. It would be a bit of both cosmetic and performance. We have some moronic drivers up here so stopping power is a must.

You will have to.switch spindles/knuckles in the front and adapter plates in the rear....plus all associated parts like brake lines etc. You should also consider will the front wheels from the 2011 go over those massive 6 pot brembos?

if youre going for a BBK, get a set of 6 piston stoptechs and be done. Will be about $3K+ for any system (until the stockers start showing up in junkyards and on eBay - still $2K or so for the used ones).

How do the Stoptech compare to the Brembo other than looking exactly like them with a shitty font?


Does Brembo not make a off the shelf system that fits the WK2? Just a custom one that is for the SRT?

they dont list any. they do make a BB upgrade for the front wk1 SRT. Upgrades the fronts to 6 pots. You can use about any caliper you want if you want to design a plate to mount them, have it machines etc etc.

look at the pics of the 2012...its the same as with the wk's. Different front spindles and different mounting plates in the rear

heres the nonsrt wk2 suspensions...notice the spindles

The SRT wk2 is set up the same way except the spindles and rear plates are unique to the SRT(as confirmed by an SRt enegineer) to adapt to the brembo bolt spacing and larger rotors.
