Default Rear Brakes

Well it turns out that I have to replace the rear rotors and brake pads at 62000km. When stock components need replacing I like upgrading them with something that might be better then the OEM component.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the rear rotors and brake pads?

Anyone tried out the KVR products?

Thanks,
Jens.

Default What is special about OEM rotors and pads

I just got a quote from Subaru on the OEM cost to replace these parts on a 2000 Impreza 2.5 RS. Here is the break down:

115.72 for a rear rotor
172.60 for a set of rear brake pads (OH MY GOD!)

Screw OEM. I'm getting the stuff from kvr.

Later,
Jens.

You could go with Legacy rotors and pads....

These rotors are better (thicker and ventilated).....

The only thing required to do this mod is to buy the caliper braket (from the legacy)......

For OEM stuff, call Auto Parts Extra......

Are you doing the work yourself?

Hmmmm...Robin how hard is that conversion? Also, what does it do to the brake bias?

Don Nimi has the Brembo made KVR cross-drilled rotors to replace the stock ones and they look nice without having to source a bunch of other stuff.

Just swap out the rotors and put aftermarket pads in and you'll have better than OEM stopping power.

IIRC, if you have a MY99 or earlier, Don also has KVR pads. He tells me that SS brake lines are on the way.

Robin,

The legacy change over is pricey if you can not find the calipers used. Here is the brake down.

Brake pad kit: 114.74
Left & Right Calipers: 370.83 each
Left & Right Rotor: 100.39 each

At the same time might as well do the WRX front swap:

Left & Right Caliper adapter: 90.93 each
Left & Right Front Rotors: 175.59 each

All parts sourced locally.

Markus,

KVR is actually local to Ottawa. You can have ANY rotor slotted or drilled for 30 dollars and ANY rotor plated for 15 dollars.

Later,
Jens.

Those are some crazy prices..... Is that dealer rates?

What did you pay for your parts at KVR?
