It's not a direct swap, you still have to change the spindles. Also the rears will not direct bolt to the regular 1500 axle. FYI the Ram SRT-10 brakes are made by TRW.

The spindles are interchangeable between 3rd and 4th gen (a guy with an 09 bought my original spindles and used them). Why not get a set of SRT spindles?

Finished product (this was 4 years ago)

I think they do fit but change the track width. I belive the McGaughy lowering spindles are originally for the 3rd Gen's, that is why they push the wheels out on the 4th Gen trucks.

I think.

all the parts are ordered so ill know by the end of this week most likely the only measurements that i see different are the hub rotor height 11mm diff but thats 6mm per item caliper/spindle very minimal modifications possibly even just a hub spacer .I really think this is going to work...if it wont i will offset the caliper and spindle and just make a steel plate bracket that goes over them....the ram r/t wheels are crying for brembos


the reason i didnt use the srt-10 brakes is because 1 the spindles are stupid expensive and they dont make drop/aftermarket spindles for the srt-10 ram
2 the srt-10 ram brembos were tiny compared to whats on the new jeep.

15" rotors on all applications. 04's used big 2 piston floaters, 05-06 used even bigger 4 piston fixed, all interchangeable on the same spindles. Rear brakes are big 2 piston sliders on the Dana.

Yeah those 22's look pretty empty with the stock Ram brakes...as for the spindles, I paid $200 for mine. SRT Ram brakes aren't Brembos though, they're made by TRW.
