It's pretty simple, just get the Mopar big brake kit for $800. Depending on the year of the car I can help you with the rest. If it's an early car like mine, you'll need to drill out the 2 mounting holes in the upright from 1/2" to 9/16" - I have the bit still and will send it to you for $20. For the rears, just get the 2007 Charger police car rear caliper brackets and matching rotors. One thing I WILL say is get the Powerstop pads so you have great braking and no brake dust. You can do the whole thing for around $1200 - no need to waste the extra $2600 unless you just want to say you have Wilwood brakes.

And with the extra $$ you save, you can have the calipers powder coated like I did for a couple of hundred bucks.
