Brake upgrade question? please help
I own an 07 Dodge ram 1500 with the 5.7 litre hemi engine, I was thinking of upgradind my brakes to the bigger SRT10 calipers and rotors. Does aybody know what it takes to make this pssible? im fed up with my front brakes they suck! my tuck barely hit over 60 K miles and the brakes are gone again:doh: Is it just an easy bolt in upgrade? or do i have to change the master cylinder??? PLEASE HELP...

I'm not sure what all that takes to make it possible, but may I offer a back up plan if you change your mind? I recently had to replace my from rotors and pads. From all the stories I've heard about how Rams eat rotors like candy I wanted to upgrade. Thanks to several suggestions on this forum, I went with EBC rotors and pads. The rotors are heavy duty and the "Green Stuff" pads are amazing. The pads, after the 200 mile break in period, put off virtually no break dust at all.

I'd be curious as to why the brakes are wearing this quickly. I routinely see factory brakes going well over 60K. Are the rear brakes wearing out just as fast?
