I get them at a crazy discount through my work cuz we put them on corvettes all the time and I would still be paying $2,100! Breaks really arent worth that to me

Thats right.... $4560.00 for the kit for the RAM 1500's. Wow, that just seems extreme for some brake components.. I realize they are probably awesome but that's just way to much to spend, IMO, and it's only for the front brakes, they don't make a kit for the rear, yet. Some nice red duplicolor will go along ways,,lol, like "lowrpmtork" said...

Brembos are definitely expensive but they're one of the best brake kits out there. Baer makes one for our trucks that's $3,600 and has 15" rotors and 6 piston calipers

So I have a question, is that price for just the calipers and the rotors? Is there more parts that are needed to get them to work with the bracket on the Ram?

All you need is the rotors and calipers. Stainless brake lines would be a good upgrade too. But the rotors and calipers just mount up

I hate to resurrect an old thread, but did anyone figure out if the Mopar Brembos from a Challenger SRT would bolt up to our trucks? I have 2 sets of complete brembo calipers the 1 (Silver) set is going onto my Challenger (which is not a cheap swap as I have the V6, so spindles and knuckles need to be swapped) but I have a red set as well that I'd like to mount to the truck if it can be done, I'd be installing braided lines as well and fresh new rotors all the way around, I would REALLY like to see if this is doable.

Yup. Might as well check and see if the caliper bracket bolts are in the right spots, if so... then it's just making sure the rotor clears the caliper and brake pads.
