Long story short, is it possible to convert from single piston calipers to dual piston calipers?
If so, how much of a headache would it be to do so?
I’ve heard it can be done easily, that it’s a difficult conversion, and that it can’t be done, and I can’t seem to find anywhere that has a direct answer.

Also, I have solid brake rotors and I’m interested in vented ones due to the way they work.
Again, is it possible/simple to convert from solid rotors to vented?

I have a 2014 SXT, any information helps, thanks!

the R/T (2-piston brakes) have vented rotors as part of that package - so its possible.

The knuckles and spindles are the same between the base single piston and the dual piston setups.

Yeah, since the knuckles are the same you'll be fine upgrading to an R/T (rotors + pads) or Pursuit (rotors + pads + calipers) brake package.

The fronts can go dual piston but rears will still be single - though bigger and vented rotors are still an improvement. And to be perfectly clear, SRT/Brembos will NOT be an option unless you change knuckles too.

I believe the brake lines in front have to be changed as they will be too short. they can be left hanging and will fit, but not advised. I think it's a matter of dual piston front calipers, brackets, guide pins, rotors (13.6") pads, and brake lines. In the rear I believe the rotors are already 12.6", but you'd need the vented

Any chance you could give me a part number for said brake line?
I can’t seem to find one for my SXT and dual pistons.

So, from what I've read, the stock hoses are just a little short, but will work if they are not fastened to the original bracket. They hang free, but many just leave them like that. Hoses from an R/T which have the same brakes as the SXT with 20" wheels/SXT Plus later years, etc. will be just a bit longer. In searching, these are listed for both SXT Performance Brakes (not touring), and R/T



The rears are the same
