I need advice from anyone that’s done this swap. I’ve been reading the how-to’s on the forums but still have some questions.

Getting my Brembos next week from a 17 Charger to swap on my 16 Challenger. So far they are coming with knuckles, spindles, hubs, rotors, calipers, brake lines, abs wires, & dust shields.

I noticed they don’t come with parking brake cable, banjo bolts and the nuts that secure the ball joint to the control arms. Can I re-use my R/T ones?

I have WRT wheels too.

I started working on mine yesterday. I had to remove all the control arms, stabilizers, endlinks, etc. I have to get a 12mm hex/Allen key to break that bottom bolt loose still.
These had some surface rust on the front hubs so I cleaned them up. They cut the emergency break cable so I removed the piece they left on both knuckles.

After I remove that 12mm hex, I’m gonna spray a little black paint on those hubs to keep that rust from coming back on the back side. I have a few spots on the calipers I have to hit with red touch up paint as well. The car must of seen a rough winter where these came from.

Will post pictureS when completed.

Yeah pretty awesome. Getting use to the difference. Sensitive pedal it seems now. It almost completes my build. Now a Magnuson SC in the near future.
