Good evening everyone
The other day I was out at my local U pull it yard. I noticed I'm the truck are was a Mercedes ML155 AMG. Looking at this SUV, I noticed the front calipers were 4 piston Brembo and the rear were 2 piston Brembos
I grabbed them thinking they might work good to modernize the my Cuda (and they were $13.00 a piece). So has anyone used these or Brembos on old mopars? If so what rotor have you used?

Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated

Ear mount makes it difficult to do. If they were radial mount then it would be a lot easier. I've built a bunch of custom brake kits over the years but I don't use ear mount calipers anymore since it is too much work.

You can use them if you like. Nothing wrong with that.

The fronts are designed to fit 13-1/2" rotors that are 1-1/4" thick. The rears are designed for 13" solid rotors 1/2" thick.

I would strongly suggest looking for rotors before going any farther. It might be difficult to find something that fits your car. Should you find luck there, it's all about building the brackets. That can be the tricky bit.

If you have the fabrication skills it is entirely possible. It's the time and trouble you need to consider. If it turns out to be a bit more work than you're comfortable doing then flipping them on Ebay might work but you shouldn't expect a big dollar. There are far more attractive calipers available.

Those calipers are essentially the same as the non-AMG models used through those years but the mounting ears are different. Early SRT-8 cars wore similar parts.
Do not split the caliper. The o-rings are not available. Turn those torx head bolts and you've got a paperweight.


We are brothers and sisters doing time on the planet for better or worse. I'll take the better, if you don't mind.

Mustang rotors seem to be common, there is a guy on Dodgecharger.com that was selling a bracket to mount them. Tim
