    So basically the same thing i see for sale on sites, which they add like $100 for. sweet! ive been planning on going J/Y hoppin in the near future, i just added one more thing to my list.

    are the rear brakes any different?
    you gotta use your stock rears...which, the rears dont do much @ all anywayz, so the stockers are fine...

    The rear brakes are the same on all 2nd gens.

    And the rear brakes still do a significant amount of work. It's not like they just stuck them back there for looks. lol

    I plan on upgrading to 12" rear brakes sometime here...

    Yes they make a heavy duty set of front rotors ans an option for Intrigues, however the pads are the same size ?!?!?!?! The only reason I could forsee the bigger rotors being an advantage rather than unsprung increased mass (which is bad for 1/4 mile times) is quicker heat dissapation. You can also get these cross drilled and slotted. Sorry I was slow slow responding...

    Re: ATTN: IRONDOG - Does The Intrigue Have 12" Front Brakes!?

    The big reason why it's better to have larger rotors is the greater leverage action the now further out pads are, and more surface area per revolution.

    I've read that the 12" upgrade does make a noticeable difference in braking power.
