Default Subaru rear 2pot Brake Kit and Pads help

Anyone know who carries the 2-pot rear kit, and what is the price, I found a vendor that sells for 1300, but looking to see if other places are cheaper.

Where can I find replacement brake pads for these?

AV Sport can sell you the 2-pot kit for a bit less than that. Your $1300 price sounds like an MRT 2-pot kit. The AV Sport kit is the Subaru 2-pots and 2-pot rotors, Subaru 2-pot pads. and whatever else is needed to install. Call and ask for Wayne.

Why not get the Wilwood 4 pot rear kit? I think it's about same price or maybe a bit cheaper. A LOT lighter too.

One reason (not necessarily his) is that it doesn't fit under 16" rims (at least not the Subaru ones) just too big around.

You're right in one respect though. The 2 pot rears aren't worth the huge money they cost, at least in my opinion. If you're gonna spend that much there are better solutions.

Question

Would it be possible to fit 4-pots on the front and take the current 2-pots in the front and shift them to the rear ??

I dont think thats possible b/c of the parking brake, or something around that area on/near the rear discs...Dunno If I am right or wrong about that though ...We need a second opinion .

IMHO huge rear brakes (4 or 6 pot) are overkill for street use.
I just put front 4-pot's w/SS lines all around and the difference from stock is huge.
Having good tires and brakes is better than wishing you had them.
I may go for the 2-pot rears as I like lotsa middle pedal.

JMHO...

You may be right. Basically, the rear discs also have the parking brake drums within it. So it may not be possible.

You can't do the 2-pot front to rear swap becasue of the parking brake assembly. Don't know if the caliper mounts are the same either.

Yeah... you are right Zahn, I am referring to the ones iSR sells, the ones that include the slotted MRT rear rotors. the only reason why I want this instead of the Wilwood is only becuase of the stupid little 'Subaru' logo. As my next step is get the 4-pot Subaru front w/ MRT slots. Zahnster, do you happen to have the contact for AV Sport for those 2-pot Subaru rear kit you were talking about? Thanks.

i was under the impression that the rear HUB had to be changed to get the 2 pot rears to fit

how about H-6 rear brakes instead...

Edit:
Removed due to it being misinformation that I found out about later through discussion in the thread by mav1c about his H6 upgrade issues.
