Idea Viper/Dakota parts interchange

I have grafted a '00 Dakota frame and suspension to a '56 DeSoto. Motor is a '96 Viper Gen2. Will the Brembo's from a Viper fit this set up? Part number?
Rotors & #? What wheel size will be necessary?

That's a rough question, most of us with a Dakota budget can't afford Viper parts and the guys that can probably wouldn't put them on a Dakota!
Interesting question though, using a Viper for parts....

The guys on the Viper forum claim that Viper uses the same 6-lug front wheel hub as the Dakota so the rotors will probably fit but the spindles (knuckles) are different so the caliper brackets won't fit without some fabrication.

unless you already have the brembos off a viper, i'd just get some that were made for the dakota chasis.. it be easier, and probably cheaper..
