VERY unscientific test results



6 pot brembos(front only) vs. stock 2011 Durango braking system

Using one utility pole as brake slam point(emergency braking maneuver)
next utility pole as measuring point(just worked out that way) Plus I had no measuring device longer than 25 ft to measure distance between utility poles. Test conducted on private site/company owned/closed.

****I will add the human error in this test. I tried to start emergency braking at the same point on the pavement...but I couldve had an error of 1-3 ft**** I also did about a 350 mile break in on the new pads on the brembos and then a bed in as recomended by Raybestos.


Stock runs 60-0
stock 2 piston front(vented)/single piston rear(solid disc)-STOCK pads
toyo proxes st2 tires
76 degress sunny-0 wind 11:30 am
using utility pole as brake slam point

1st stop from 60

14 ft.

2nd stop from 60

17 ft

3rd stop

24 ft

4th stop

32 ft


------------------------------------------------------------------

6 piston front Brembos

6 piston Brembos on front w/raybestos pads and stock 15" rotors
1 piston rear w/solid disc, stock pads
84 degrees, cross wind 230 pm...same circumstances as above

1st stop

7 ft

2nd stop

1 ft

3rd stop

-2 ft

4th stop

-2 ft


results speak for themselves. The stock system performed ok on first and second stops and got progessively worse. The brembo equipped vehicle got better with every emergency stop. More results when the rear brembos arrive. You can interpret the results as you please.

As often as people spend money on aftermarket wheels I'm surprised people haven't done this upgrade and that this thread hasn't blown up!

When DSM'ers found out about being able to use Evo brembos they totally flipped over that and the thread got huge!

I guess people don't really care about making there vehicle safer, perform better and look awesome!

New here to JG, which is a great forum by the way...Have done some mods to previous Jeeps I've owned as well as rebuilding top end on son's XJ. Have been looking at potentially adding Brembo's, skids, tow hooks to my 2014 GC Limited.

I too am interested in the question above as well as how do the Brembo's "feel" from a daily driver perspective? Responsive, touchy, significant difference, etc?

They look awesome...

The brembos are world class. Stopping distance from 60 was significantly reduced. I have some stats above. ....but im pretty sure the SRT stops like 20-30ft shorter from 60 than the wk2 nonSRT. That will keep u out of most emergency braking crashes. The feel is world class as well. You only see 6 pistons and 15" rotors on high end sports cars/luxury.
