I have a shot at a set of Brembo used calibers. What else do I need to make them work on my RT? How much would it be to install a used set? Can I run everything else stock? I want the look and better performance. Will I just void the break warrenty? Found a used set of 4 calibers for 1k

Checkout Cleveland Pick-A-Part. I got a full (knuckles, calipers, rotors, etc.) used set for $1800 shipped. The only thing extra I had to buy was some more brake fluid. Good luck with the search, you'll love the breaks!

If you're running Heritage wheels, they won't fit.
I have the 20 inch chrome dodge RT rims now. I want to either keep them or switch to 20x9/ 20x10 or 22x9/ 22x10 viper rims. Will they work? I have a shot at just the claipers. Would I need different rotors? Will they bolt right in and run off stock everything?

Don't quote me on this but I think I've read pads alone are more than $500 for all four corners. Installing the parts isn't difficult if you have some mechanical know how.

Make sure you know what you're getting into. From what I gather maintaining the Brembo brakes can be very expensive.

I would not buy just the calipers. You NEED the spindles to go with the whole shebang. And you will have a very hard time finding just the spindles (and if you do it will not be cheap). Best bet is to buy the full set up for a nice price. Like I said before, I got everything for $1800 and it was a direct swap

i agree with chris, id look for a complete set. you may spend more trying to piecemeal one together.





there are also other options out there beside brembo. wilwood is one option im sure there are a few others as well.

^^Yep,
Wilwood, StopTech, etc are all great choices. I just couldn't pass up the deal on the Brembos. I love them! The R/T brakes were fine, but they don't like high speeds. While the Brembos will slow down from 100+ like it's nothing. All around breaking has improved, and I'd without a doubt recommend changing out the brakes to anyone that drives/races their car hard

How long was the install?
