Default Questions for those who've done the H6 rear upgrade to a WRX

I've been thinking of doing this upgrade.

I checked subaruwrxparts.com and they sell the larger H6 rear rotors with caliper brackets for $225. Is this all I need, just the rotors and brackets? I may not use the actual Subaru rotors, but perhaps Stoptech H6 sized rotors.

Right now I already have ss lines all around and upgraded pads all around as well.

Also, for those that have done this...do you feel or notice a difference? Would you say it was a worthwile upgrade? Or should I save my $ for front 4-pots instead?

Thanks for your suggestions...

Ok, most people that have done this have had front brake work. My local friends witht he GC8 chassis swear that with front WRX rotors and rear H6 conversion, the car is a monster when it comes to brakiing.

I did it after doing the 4pots up front.

Most people will tell you do the fronts first. I say the rear helps as well. Also, save the money and get rear two pots if you can. You'll really enjoy it.

I went from H6 rear to Wilwood 2pots rear. Now saving for the Brembo 2pot rear kit.

Good luck with whatever route you take.

....well....I guess it's time fort this one to come up again....

Shifting the bias to the rear is a good thing...the 'H6' does that.
It works good.
No downsides, that come easily to mind...
Slotted/drilled rotors are 'bling', the stock rotors have a good rep.
Buy good pads and be

I'm seriously considering this. If you know anything about brake bias, most cars come overly front-biased. The bias only sifts 2% from front to rear, but that is good enough without being overkill. Expect good balance and faster stops. And looks better. Seems to be a REALLY good deal and a clever idea. Best value in brakes? (other than pads/lines/fluid).
