Re: [Chrysler300] Brake replairs

I did the AAJ disc brake conversion on my 62 300 Sport Convertible 12 to 14 years ago and am very happy with them.

In 2017 I bought all 6 wheel cylinders for my 300G. I thought I'd start with it original and later maybe switch to disc brakes.

Given the cost associated with the front wheel cylinders and shoes, I think it may be worthwhile to look into the AAJ disc brake conversion for the fronts.  If you're on 15" wheels, you get a Cordoba rotor and Monte Carlo calipers/pads and no more adjusting cams and it's a bolt on conversion.  Works very well.  If you're on 14" you need a smaller rotor but still works well.  I converted both my 57 and 61 and am happy after 4 years.

The cylinders are the same for 1960 and 1961 Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto, Chrysler and Imperial.

Here is the Mopar Part Numbers:
1857051 Rear
1857052 Front Lower Right
1857053 Front Lower Left
1857054 Front Upper Right
1857055 Front Upper Left

If need be I can try to find the NAPA Numbers.

I don't know how good they are but Rock auto shows all the front ones available for 17.00 each.
I am pretty sure I paid well over 200.00 for the 6 I got from NAPA.

Good Luck   !!!!

Gentlemen and Ladies,


It’s come to repair the brakes in my 1962 300 Sport Coupe that’s been sitting for a spell. I’m losing brake fluid, but at this time have not found out where, but suspect a wheel cylinder as there are telltale signs on one of the wheels that I pulled to put new tires on it.


I also want to rebuilt the master cylinder and power brake booster. I’ve looked at Rock auto and they only list 330H shoes. Also the wheel cylinders do not look like the ones I have on now. I’m looking for a phone number for them to speak to a service rep if possible.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It’s also scheduled to go into the body shop to get repainted. With a little help it started right up, but it is not idling smoothly. 413 w/4 barrel and 3 speed manual trans.  Will do complete tune up after it’s painted.


Thanks in advance,
