Default Has anyone done the Legacy Turbo Rear Brake Upgrade on their WRX?

I was searching for some new rear calipers (one has frozen on me) and found this Legacy Turbo Rear Brake Upgrade kit on subaruwrxparts.com-

My questions are:

1) Does the kit come with everything I need for a complete switchover, minus the brake fluid? I.e. will I need different rotors, will my stainless brake lines work, etc.

2) Will this mess up the stock brake bias in any way? Basically, will I be able to keep my stock fronts if I did this conversion without any big ramnifications when it comes to braking time in the snow?

That kit is for the older turbo legacies. The rotor is the same diameter, the piston is the same, the only difference is that the rotor is vented.

Personally, I wouldn't bother doing it. Either upgrade to the H6 rear setup, or the new Legacy GT rear setup. Otherwise, just replace the caliper.
