Rears are complete. Big thanks to Ken at KNS brakes for making the brackets, supplying the rear rotors and putting up with my constant asking about the brackets progress.

The brackets work PERFECTLY. A little bit of grinding off the knuckle and they bolt right up.



My original teaser picture showed drilled rotors. For one...those didn't work because there is a depth difference in the e-brake between 07-08 which makes the rotors completely lock up when you torque down the wheel. This was ok with me as I wanted to switch to slotted from drilled anyway, so Ken sent over a set of 08+ STI DBA 4000 STI rotors drilled for 5x100. Everything mounted up nicely...



Once the everything was bled, caliper was waxed and the wheel was torqued down...I went for a drive and everything performed flawlessly. The car is insanely dirty from a lot of driving this week...but here is how they look behind my Works (still waiting on my center caps).



Now I just have to get slotted rings for my fronts to get rid of the drilled rotors I hate and everything will be matched up. It's nice to finally have the rears on.

The fronts for reference...
