05 CC LE 4x4 Brake Upgrade

Hi guys. Recently purchased an 05 T in crew cab 4x4 with LE package. It has 161k on it and will mostly be used as a shop truck (I own a performance shop in NY).

Since I have access to most aftermarket parts and OEM parts... I’m looking to do the brakes on the truck now. I’ve read all the threads regarding upgrading to 08 front calipers etc.

Main question is... since finding the spacers for
The hub is proving to be a tedious task...

Does the 2008+ front hub assembly bolt on to the 05-06 trucks with no serious modifications? Figure I’ll replace the hub while doing the upgrade.

Thank in advance for any help clarifying this.

Re: 05 CC LE 4x4 Brake Upgrade

You actually have a couple of non-spacer options. You can buy the new hubs, as the 08-up hubs bolt right up to the earlier trucks. Or you can buy 2006 Armada disks, as they are the large diameter disks, but fit the smaller hub bore. It's in a thread on here (https://www.titantalk.com/forums/tit...rs-needed.html) and seems pretty straight forward. Either way puts you using a mix of part numbers you'll need to track (either different hubs/rotors/calipers/pads or different rotors/calipers/pads, and maybe brackets and lines, can't remember right off hand, as I only researched this when I was looking at a 2006 for my son which we didn't end up buying).

I am trying to source parts for this myself For same truck model and 4x4 and have a couple Quesions.
Why not just get 06 Armada Rotors and Calipers as a matched set instead of the 06 Armada rotors and 08 Titan calipers. Are the Titan calipers superior to the 06 Akebono ?
Looks like Rock auto has a matched set(Power stop KC290936) Is this the best route to take?

05 LE CC 4x4, Big Tow, XM, Tinted windows, Chrome 18" QX 56 wheels,Bridgestone Revo AT tires, Stainless Chromed Westin Bull Bar, 4PC APS alluminum billet grill, Stainless exhaust tip, PRG leveling kit, PRG modified Bilstein rear shocks, Air Lift 1000 rear suspension leveling kit with Load Controler II inflation system, Lund Genesis Trifold Tonneau, Stampede Bug Shield, EGR in channel window vent visors,Power Tailgate Mod, IPCW LED Tailgate Light Bar.

I don't think there's a nickel's worth of difference between them. Get the properly sized Akebonos and my suspicion is, whether you order the ones for the Armada or the ones for the Titan, you'll get what is the same part. If you can find a set on a deal, that's always a good route to go.
