Brake mod question

Hey guys,

This may seem like a silly question but can I just remove my V6 rotors and calipers and replace with SS rotors and calipers, simply change them out. I know the brake lines should be changed as well but will they simply unbolt and bolt on, are there any additional parts needed (shields, etc)?

Thanks in advance.

I would imagine u would need the larger ss backing plate/heat shield. They are mainly there for water can leave them off if u dont do much driving in the rain.

you definitely don't want to leave off the backing plates, they prevent debris/crap off the road from entering your rotor and go into your caliper mount.

Your caliper mounts will be different and there may be electrical issues encountered, like traction control. I would just buy a new brembo or mgp brake package. its easier and the company put in engineering to know what works

There are a lot of threads on here that have done this very mod. Do some searching. And I'm sure you can find your answer.

Rear dust shields require trimming or replacement. (I know it makes no sense.)

You will need new caliper bolts, pads, pins, etc.

Technically you should also get the SS master cylinder. If you do that you will be doing a full fluid bleed as well.

Yes you should do this. It's a great mod.
