Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

I did this over the weekend; I only did the front.

Bought rotors, brackets and pads.

Actually very easy to do; calipers on the 2011's are very easy to get on and off.

A couple things I'll...

Re: Replacing a single tire?

The real issue comes in with what is left on the other tires; Quadra Drive 2 looks at different wheel spin speeds. If tires are not matching within a percentage it can cause problems with the T/C.

Re: Stiff brake pedal when starting

Mine does this when it's not been run for 2-3 days in a row; but once started it goes back to normal. Not sure why it does it.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

Correct, not available on Laredo.

That's why I want to do this mod; stupid to leave it off of the same equipment due to trim level.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

I see the front caliper is black and has a Mopar symbol on it; where did you get those? I thought all the parts were basically a zinc color as the old ones you have?

Re: Quadra-lift air VS non-air

I see the Ram truck is offering QL as well; not sure how similar it is but I would suspect it's probably pretty close if not identical. Maybe larger components.
