I've mostly been looking at it since mine needed new rotors, and I plan to run manual brakes, so I've been wondering if I can size the MC correctly to have decent pedal feel. Everybody and their brother has done it with 3/4-ton chevy calipers, and they are easy to find and cheap.

I'd love the Branik setup, but not $1800 love it to setup front and rear the same.

I finally decided to bite the bullet and bought new rotors and fresh unit bearings, and hope to have them machined soon and I'll figure out the MC later.

I'm interested to see what caliper you end up with and the mounting.
I had made some brackets that would require some grinding and welding of the stock caliper bracket mounting points and also would still have bolts mounting the adaptor but... I bought the Reid knuckle so I could run my draglink higher and it’s not made the same as the stock so I’m back to the engineering phase but I’m going to run 07’ 2500hd rear calipers brackets and rotors one way or the other.

Well I ended up ordering Reid knuckles since a straight tierod won’t even come close to working! That said I’m not gonna cut and grind them down like I did the factory one I was prototyping.  Basically I don’t know what I’m going to do now I can use the parts I bought for the rear since it is the exact axle they are for?

pretty sure the 250/350 version is out there.

The 450/550 is still in the works.

Branik has nice stuff for sure. Are you going to use the 6 piston wilwood calipers? Or what calipers are you looking at? Reason why I ask is, I have 4 piston willwoods on all 4 corners, if I did it again, I would got with the 6 piston calipers.

I have a theory that the 4 pistons are really only any good on a thin 3/8 thick rotor. When you start getting into the wider, stock width rotors the caliper will flex since the body of the caliper is spaced out so much at that point. I cant really confirm that to be the cause with real data...but ive only seen them flex when they are on wide rotors, and when they are on wide rotors they almost always flex.   Huh? Huh?

I'm running the wider vented rotor, it was what was suggested to me at the time. So my calipers have the spacer in the middle. They absolutely flex.

There are different models.

I have seen the 4 pot billet ones upclose and they are beefy and do not flex visually.

Maybe the cast version is weaker ?

I would like to get the branik kit eventually, but I would want the same on the rear. I have the late model 14 bolt with factory disc, so I haven't found much in the way of after market brackets and such.

The lugnut kit works good for what it is, I wish it would have came already drilled for 8x6.5. my buggy stops pretty decent with it

My rig has the lug nut kit front and rear. It stops the buggy. But better would always be nice.

I run them on a 3/8 spidertrax rotor and they dont flex at all, have watched another set on 3/8 rotors that are probably 8-9 years old and they dont flex at all either. I have seen yours do it, and Ive seen 2 other sets do it when they are spaced out.

I believe 4 piston is what comes with the kit.

Most likely the standard 4 piston dynalite that is super popular and cost efficient

we are talking about the forged (I dont know about a cast version?) dynalite as the "standard" caliper from them, they just space them out with a spacer in between to get them different widths. I know they make some pretty wild billet 4 piston (and 6 piston) setups, but still would probably choose the standard dynapro 6 piston over anything like that in our application if you had a wide rotor

Have you ever actually ran a aftermarket hydroboost kit? Or are you just drinking the kool-aid with no actual experience?

I see the 4 piston kit is 925 from burkey. Wonder how much extra the 6 piston kit is? Anyone priced it direct fron Branik.

Depends on your idea of ultimate. For me, there are certain components that I'd rather use "off the shelf" / parts store parts.

If you're considering using wilwood calipers, I would go with the 6 piston calipers.
