Does anyone know where I can larger rear brakes. I just saw a kit for my 98 Mustang called a Plus1, but nothing for an Intrepid. The kit uses a larger rotor and bracket to move the stock caliper.

Our cars are front wheel drive so the major braking needs to be up front

but dont say im worthless

HP Racing Large Brake Kits - $3,636.36 to $4,242.42
Largest rotors you can get for our cars, period. They come with a loaded 8 piston caliper, braided SS brake line, and rotor.

That be the one. I would get it if it were like 2 grand. But at almost 4 grand, forget it.

:eek5: $4000 for brakes are they crazy??? How can they justify that much? Like warlord said around $2000 might be worth it.

dont' they sell the slotted and cross drilled for the rear as well? I was under the impression they were for all four disks. Now also a new question about this. Are brake porportioning valves universal? I'd like to put a little more effort into my rear brakes and was wondering about this the other night. I realize that if there's too much you'll just lock the rears up and drag then the car will have the tendancy to switch ends...perhaps better rear brakes are a bad idea :p...

wonder how much would have to change to get stealth brakes to work...I bet they have tons of beef up parts for that.

The 328x28 is kind of wussy (more than fine for a rear brake, better than the 350Z track rear) when the 332x32 has more thermal mass and still fits a 17" wheel. (332x32 is better than the 350Z brembo front)
The ST80 caliper is frickin huge (double ST40's), ST60 are interesting, but pricey
I like that the ST20's will fit the SRT4's front stock wheels.
ST22s cost more than ST40s but are lighter.
$375 for parking brake caliper.

The first link is a good link. Good info for the subject at hand. But the rest of that has absolutely nothing to do with the subject at hand. It's like you just randomly babble. Too bad they don't make anything for the LH cars. Unless their price list is incomplete.

Just a point of reference, that for $2000 a superb brake upgrade would be doable.

$4000 is just way too much.

Just taking a quick look, rear brake upgrade are good for racing cars with high downforce, really fast cars big turbo toyota supra, or vehicles for towing.
The catalog lists on page 3&4, Brake balance, brake balance, brake balance.

The price lists the biggest rear brake for the most rear heavy car on the market, Porsche 911, as the 332x32. So the rear brake on the intrepid is more than fine. Just get enough cooling air, and thermally bond the rotor to the wheel.
