Wiwood rear disc

Post by Keith Mopar on Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:25 pm

Is anyone running wildwood rear disc kit on there Mopar?
Do you run hard lines right to the caliper or flex lines, after googling it looks like there are some of both so just wondering what's been done?

I don't have a dog in the fight so to speak but I'd want to use flex lines? Thinking it would be easier to remove the caliper during rotor changes? Otherwise you'll need to bleed the brakes each time you remove it? No?

Yea that is what I was thinking. I ended up ordering 10" flex lines from a GTO and ordered different end fittings as a GTO must use metric thread for brake lines. so an extra 12.00. Wilwood has no universal kits for brake lines for old cars. I'll post some pics on here when the parts show up and with the lines mounted.

The guys at wildwood were no help at all as I couldn't find anything on their website.

Thanks Brad...

I finally have the rear lines in. I used a Flex line from a 2005 GTO and just purchased different ends for non metric lines and worked well. The guy at wildwood had no clue of what lines I could use and suggested I just run hard lines. Just have to do some clean up and some paint.
This is what it looks ;like:
