Default Time for new brakes

I was looking over at the tire rack and there a ton of choices for new brakes and I really have no clue what I shold get. My brakes are pretty much gone so i need new ones asap. Does my 2000 2.5rs have rear disc brakes? Do i need to change all 4 or just the front 2? (How do i check... car has 40k miles) Anyone have a reccomendation? The only brand I knw of thats good are GreenStuff but I dont want to spend 160ish on new front and rear pads. I would like to spend 100 or or less for all four. Ill spend 60-70 if i only need fronts. Is it worth the extra loot for the Ceramic pads? I dont autox or track this car, but I like to be able to stop So i dont need anything serious, but maybe something abit better than stock. On the TireRack they only have Ceramic for the fronts.. whys that?

Sorry for being such a newb

nick robinson - Do yourself a favor and increase your braking power now while you need to anyways. If you're going to have a turbo on the car, might as well have brakes that'll allow you to stop too.

I would go with Axxis Ultimates. One of the best bang for the buck pads out there. You can get both sets from Stoptech for around $82 + Shipping.

Nick you do have rear discs.

IMO now would be an excellent time to upgrade your front and rear brakes using the Subaru oem parts bin. Upgrade your front rotors from your stock 277mm to WRX-sized 294mm rotors and the rears from your stock 266mm to the "H6" 290mm rotors. I think you will be really pleased with the increased heat capacity and positive bias adjustment.

These upgrades only require rotors and brackets for the front and rear. Parts are about $420 for front and rear brackets and rotors.
