Jake: Jake here for American Muscle and today I'm taking a look at the C&L Super SportFront and Rear Brake Rotor and Pad Kit fitting various different models and trims of Challenger. Now before we dive in too deep here, folks, I want to take a moment to acknowledge that this does have a complicated fitment for a bunch of different models and trims of Challengers. So, please make sure you double-check it before you buy, we've got it all spelled out on the website for you to make it nice and easy.Now, brakes are some of the most important components on your vehicle and if you're gonna go fast, you should be able to stop fast quickly too. So, if you're in need of a way to stop faster or you just wanna replace your stock front brakes, these are an excellent way to improve your Challenger's braking performance without blowing out the budget.Now traditionally manufacturers will equip their cars with solid discs from the factory and while those work fine for most applications, there is definitely room for improvement. One of the best ways to do that is by upgrading to a set of drilled and slotted rotors like these, which are gonna be extremely helpful in dissipating heat. Now heat is the enemy of braking performance and that's where these channels and holes in the faces of the rotors come in.Now as you apply the brakes, friction, and heat buildup on the pads and the faces of the rotors and these channels here are gonna help funnel that heat away from the pads. Now the holes also are drilled through the faces of the rotor and they're gonna allow for another escape route where heat can dissipate and get funneled out of the central veins here. So, all those hot gases have plenty of places through which to escape, and less heat means less chance of fading and better overall braking response.Now, if you've ever had brakes get hot on you, you know how scary of an experience that can be. So, doing everything you can to avoid that is worth it. That's all to say here that this kit is gonna give you much better heat dissipation and that means your braking performance will be improved over stock. Those veins and holes are also gonna help keep brake dust and other debris like water off of the faces of the rotors, making for a smooth, consistent operation no matter the conditions. And you combine that with these SuperSport ceramic pads, you get maximum bite, quiet operation, and low dust.Now the rotors both front and rear are constructed from CNC-machined premium cast iron, so they're similar in construction to your standard OEM brakes. These are also perfectly mill balanced to prevent against vibration, noise, and uneven wear. As you can see, they look pretty nice too because they're finished in this bright zinc electroplating and that's gonna help prevent against rust and corrosion for a long time to come.But that cast iron construction here means that the price stays low for this. The pads both front and rear too are made using a proprietary ceramic compound. And this is designed to provide consistent, solid bite and also resist fade while keeping the dust production to a minimum. Now, pricing for the set is gonna come in at about $400 for everything that you see here. And that is gonna make it about the least expensive set of drilled and slotted brakes for these Challengers. So, the kit is a great value, you get excellent stopping power, more performance versus stock.Installation is gonna come in at a two out of three on our difficulty meter. And this should take you about four hours to complete. Now, these are a direct bolt-on replacement for your stock pads and rotors. This is certainly something that can be accomplished at home in the driveway or garage and it comes with everything that you need to get this job done too. In addition to the rotors and pads, you also get new brake lubricant in the boxes and you get some stainless steel hardware too to go with it and replace your stock pieces. But enough talking about it, let's head over to the install bay now and we'll show you the process.Man: Tools used for this install, a breaker bar, an 18-millimeter open-end wrench, an 18-millimeter short socket, 13, 15, and 21-millimeter sockets, a 3/8 ratchet, and a 1/2-inch drive ratchet. Hey guys, I'm gonna show you how to install our brake and rotor kit here on our 2016 Challenger. So, let's get started. First thing we're gonna do, now that we have our wheel off, we're gonna remove our caliper first. There's two 13-millimeter bolts here that hold it in place. You might also need an 18-millimeter wrench here to hold the inside nut here so that you can break this loose. So, I'm gonna take my 13-millimeter or my 3/8 ratchet, and my 18-millimeter wrench. I'm gonna get in here and take those two off.So, now we have those two bolts out. We're gonna just be able to lift, remove our caliper. I'm just gonna place it outta the way for now and get it outta the way. Next what we'll do is just remove our brake pads. They're just gonna slide out like that. And then we're gonna remove these two 21 millimeters right here. You're gonna need a 21-millimeter socket and a breaker bar to get these two loose. So, as you can see, I got a 21-millimeter on a breaker bar, gonna get in here.I'm gonna push down and they're on there pretty good and we're gonna tighten them up the same way when we put this thing back together. And we're gonna break the bottom loose. Now what you're gonna wanna do is to remove them, I'm gonna switch this over to a ratchet and a 21-millimeter to get 'em off. Now we'll remove our caliper bracket. Now we're getting ready to remove our rotor. If it doesn't come off because it's froze on, all you're gonna have to do is smack with a hammer here or here and it'll come right off and come loose. This one's ready to come right off just like that. Now you're gonna wanna repeat this whole uninstall procedure on the opposite side.And now we have our rotors off, we're gonna install our new rotor onto our hub here and just take it like that, get it in place. Next, we'll install our caliper bracket. So, now we're gonna install our caliper bracket. We're gonna just hold our rotor into place, get our caliper bracket on, take our two bolts that we took off previously, and get them started. The hard part here is just to hold your rotor flat, makes it easier to start it. And we'll start the upper one here. I'm gonna run it in as far as I can by hand. That one down there we're going to have to tighten up with the ratchet. Now we're gonna take our 21-millimeter again on our 1/2-inch drive ratchet and tighten these up.Now you're gonna wanna torque these two bolts to manufacturer's spec. Next, we will...I'll show you about the clips here before we put our brake pads in place. So, now in the kit, they give us new spring clips that go down on the bottom and up on top here. And they're pretty simple to install. All you're gonna do is just lift up on the old one, pop it off, and remove it like that. Take the new one, again, slide it down into place here, just like that. And then you just wanna repeat that same procedure on the top one.So, now what they give you in the kit is they give you some of this Moly grease, which is what you're gonna do is open this packet up and you're gonna smear it on the back of the brake pad like that where this plate...where this shim plate is here. And you're just gonna smear it on both sides of that. We're not gonna do that because we're not gonna be keeping the brakes on the car. But you're just gonna smear this on. And now once you get your Moly grease on the back of your pads, you'll be able to stick these in place and put them up against your rotor like that.Now we'll be able to reinstall our caliper. So, now we're gonna take our caliper. Now, on our caliper, the pistons are all the way back. If you have to, you can use a old pad and some channel locks or C-clamp to push your pistons back to get 'em so that you can put on your new pads. Depending on how your old pads were worn, your pistons will be out a little further. Ours are all the way back. So, we're gonna just be able to take this, slide this over top of our pads like that and get it lined up. Just push on my rotor here a little bit and we'll just get this to where it falls into place. And now we'll reinstart. We'll restart our 13-millimeter bolts right here and this one. And I'm gonna take my 13-millimeter or my 3/8 ratchet, run these in. You might need to take your 18-millimeter again, hold the backside of this to tighten it up.We'll do the same on the top one. And now that we have those tight, you're just gonna want to repeat this whole install procedure on the opposite side. So, the first thing we're gonna do, now we have our wheel off, is we're gonna remove our caliper. I'm gonna take my 15-millimeter, my 3/8 ratchet, and an 18-millimeter wrench to hold it. And we're gonna take the two bolts off that hold it on and hold it in place. And I'm gonna get it like that to hold on to the back piece here. And I'm just gonna break this loose and move this 15-millimeter here and I'm gonna get that out.We'll go up and we have one up top here and get in here. Same again, I'm gonna put my 18 on so I can hold it and get this loose. And now that we have those two removed, you should be able to just wiggle your caliper right off just like that. So, now we're gonna remove our pads before we take off our caliper bracket. I'm just gonna wiggle like this and remove our pad. That's our inner one and we'll do the same with the outer one. Get that out of the place.Next, we're going to take a 18-millimeter back here. I'm gonna take a long pry bar, break these two loose. I'm gonna get in here my 18-millimeter on and break these loose. I'm gonna get 'em that loose, be able to take 'em out by hand. We'll be able to remove our caliper bracket. Now we're gonna remove our rotor. If your rotor doesn't want to come off first time, you can always take a ball-peen hammer, bigger one, smack it a couple spots. Ours is pretty loose, just gonna wiggle it and remove it. So, we have everything apart, what I'm gonna start with is in reinstalling our new rotor pretty much goes on just like that.You can give it a little bit of wiggle here. You're gonna want to get it and make sure it seats like that all the way up against the hub there. Next, we'll install our caliper bracket. So, now we're gonna reinstall our caliper bracket. Now once you get your caliper bracket in place, you're gonna wanna make sure your sliders up here, you can see 'em that they move freely. We don't want them stuck. If they're stuck then you're gonna have some issues. We'll get our bolts in place here. Same on this bottom one here. I'm gonna get 'em started. Then I'm gonna take my 1/2-inch ratchet with my 18-millimeter on, tighten them up. Now you're gonna wanna torque these two bolts to manufacturer's spec.So, now I'm gonna show you how to replace these clips right here that are in our caliper bracket. Our kit comes with some new ones right here. I recommend putting them in. On our vehicle I'm going to just show you how to remove them. You just pull up on 'em like that, pop 'em out of the way pretty much like that. And the new one just pushes down like so and sits in place like that. And now you're gonna wanna repeat that on the upper part of the bracket.So, now we're gonna install our brake pads and what they do is they give you some of this Moly grease, what you're gonna smear on the back side of the pads right here and right here. That way when you go and put your caliper on, it has something to slide on. It keeps it from squeaking. I'm not gonna do that on ours because we're gonna be removing this. I actually put the old clips back in. But you're gonna want to do this on yours if you intend on, you know, you're changing your brakes for good here, so you're just going to pop your brake pad in place. It just falls right back in the way it came out. Same with the front one. I'm gonna stick that in and just push it down in place.And just make sure they're flush up against the rotor like this. Next, we'll reinstall our caliper. So, now we have our caliper, again, if you go to do your brake job and your brakes are very low, your piston's gonna be out pretty far. All you're going to need to pull this piston back in place is a pair of channel locks or a C-clamp and you're just gonna squeeze it nice and easy and the piston will go back. Ours is already back because our brake pads were fairly new. So, our piston wasn't out that far.Now that we have it back that far, we'll be able to just take our caliper, push in our pins, take our 15 millimeters here and we'll get these started. And also up here on the top one, we'll get that one started. And I'm gonna take my 15-millimeter on my ratchet here and my 18-millimeter to hold the back piece. And we're gonna tighten these up and we'll do the same on the top one. And now that we have those tight, you're gonna want to repeat this whole install process on the opposite side. That wraps up this review and install of our C&L Super Sport Brake Rotor and Pad Kit, Front and Rear for 09 to 23 Challenger GT, R/T, and T/As, also 11 to 23 Challenger SE, SXT with dual-piston front calipers.

Increased Braking Performance. A great way to upgrade the stopping power of your Dual Piston Front Caliper equipped 2009-2023 Dodge Challenger is by installing a C&L Super Sport Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotor Brake Rotor and Pad Kit. Including Cross-Drilled and Slotted Front and Rear Brake Rotors, as well as a set of matching Ceramic/Metallic Brake Pads, this Brake Kit will significantly improve the braking performance of your Challenger, when compared to your original factory brakes. This C&L Performance Combo Kit is ideal for those who want high-performance braking power without breaking open their piggy banks.
Superior Construction. C&L Performance manufactures its one-piece Brake Rotors from premium-grade cast iron castings. CNC machined, these Rotors are perfectly mill-balanced to prevent vibration, noise, and uneven wear. C&L Performance then completes their rotors in a bright zinc electroplating treatment to provide good looks and protection against rust.
Cross-Drilled and Slotted. C&L Performance Super Sport Rotors feature a cross-drilled and slotted design that helps to reduce brake fade by allowing hot gasses to easily escape through the vented holes. The slotted design will sweep away dust, water and debris to keep the surface of your brake pads cleaner for reliable bite every time you hit the pedal.
Cooling Vane Design. Unlike solid aftermarket brake rotors, these C&L Performance Super Sport Rotors feature a vented vane design with an internal chamber structure. These vented vanes will allow hot gasses to escape easier to further improve the cooling performance of your brakes. Faster heat dissipation in turn will greatly increase your braking performance.
Ceramic Metallic Compound. C&L Super Sport Brake Pads are manufactured from a proprietary blend of ceramic and metallic fibers that will resist brake fade and will provide maximum braking bite. C&L Super Sport Ceramic pads are the logical choice for big brake stopping power without the price.
Clean and Quiet Operation. Featuring a rotor-friendly ceramic/metallic compound and an OE style slotted design, these C&L Performance Brake Pads will produce significantly less dust when compared to your original stock pads. When C&L Performance Brake Pads are combined with their matching Rotors, you will experience smooth, noise-free braking.
Direct Fit Replacement Upgrade. C&L Performance designed its Cross-Drilled / Slotted Rotor and Brake Pad Combo Kit to be a direct fit replacement upgrade for your Challenger's stock rotors and pads. Installation can normally be completed in under 4 hours with just basic hand tools using the existing calipers and hardware.
