Most of the upgrades (13.5" or larger rotors) require at least 17" wheels......


Usually they say in the specs.

I don't have a big boy ride like the rest of the respondents, nor the mechanical ability of others, however, for my 2018 SMB Sprinter I just upgraded my brakes with a PowerStop Z36 Truck and Tow Brake Upgrade Kit. HazzardFabWorx recommended them for my vehicle. I see that PowerStop has them for a 2002 F350 https://www.powerstop.com/product/po...z36-brake-kit/.

I upgraded to 17” wheels some time ago in anticipation of hopefully being able to upgrade to a larger brake.

Regarding the Stoptech brakes, I looked into those and was close to purchasing them for the rear. They look like a viable option for sure.

With that being said, are people upgrading front and rear with the bigger kit at the same time? My rear axle is a Ford Dana 60 FF with OEM brakes. What are the Ford options? Does it make sense to upgrade the rear?

Thanks for everyone’s input so far.

I might take this route for the front and see how it plays out since I have the same setup currently.

I have basically the same van and did a brake swap this year. The difference has been amazing. My van is a 2002 Quigley E350 V10 RB with the GM based Dana 60 front axle. I swapped to 2010+ Dodge Ram 14" rotors and calipers. Everything else is the stock Ford brake system. I didn't know the van had functional ABS until this swap. I was nervous doing a panic stop test above 60mph. I wasn't sure what else would break with that size vehicle...

No affiliation. Customer service was lacking. Delivery was slow. Fit was eh. I had to do a little grinder modification to fit.

Everything else I got from Rockauto or the local suppliers. I want to say all in, the cost was something like $650 plus new wheels and tires.
