    I've got a decent amount of knowledge and experience with through a few 350/5.0 builds and rebuilds.

    I've got a Chrysler 300M daily driver. One of my brake rotors is warped.

    I'm considering a brake/suspension/rim replacement in the near future to tighten up the corners a bit. Since my rotor's warped I'm thinking I might as well run that full replacement on the brakes (rotors, calipers, pads) now.

    Does anyone have any make/model recommendations for a new brake setup? Will stock hydraulics suffice for something like this or am I looking at a replacement there also?

    Any thoughts on the suspension would also be appreciated.

    Seriously though, are there even any setups for that type of car?

    Those cars look like the epitome of non-performance. Huge, high, front wheel drive, underpowered (compared to cars now). I think they look decent but performance wise, no. They really only look good in black with that little spoiler.

    What kind of brake setup does it have? Floating caliper and hat style caliper? If so then it'd be fairly simple to have a bracket made to locate pretty much any caliper you want, on any rotor you like.
