Default H6 upgrade question

I have a 02 wrx was thinking of doing the H6 rear break upgrade. I know they changed the rear brake pads from 02 to 03. I have seen people say ( http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=522006 ) to use one style break pad and ( http://www.subaruwrxparts.com/shop/p...&idcategory=17 ) to use the other.

I guess what I really want to know is do they both work? any one that has run this and can remember what rear brake pad they had would really help. I just dont want to have to re order brake pads.

The Legacy bracket used for this upgrade accepts the same pad as the 02 WRX and the early 03s

Yes. Immediately noticeable even on moderate braking in daily driving.

This is a very inexpensive modification. The brackets from autozone are what $26 each? Then get a pair of low-cost rotors also from autozone or centric, and some pads. For around $100 give or take, you can improve the braking performance of your car.

The question really is, why haven't you done it yet?

I did a write up on it after I did mine also. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2457887

Your '02 will reuse stock D770 pads and clips. late '03s and 04-05s will need the '02 clips and D770 pads.
