Default Front and Rear Brake Upgrade Question

I really like the brake upgrade that STI-WRX did. Here

The price of $2000 seems to be the cheapest I have found so far.

Are there any brake kits to upgrade the front and rear for less? I am not doing any auto-x-ing, I just want better than stock stopping power.

Thumbs up

That's the best bang for the buck...and since it's OEM finding parts, rotors and pads will be pretty easy when it's time for replacements.

Others have been having good luck with just getting a bit more help from the rear with the H6 rear upgrade. Slightly larger rotor. All you need is a caliper bracket and the larger rotor, about $250 for new parts. I just need the right brackets and they'll be on my car. North Ursalia reports that the brackets needed are the same as the ones on the front of the WRX.

Adding SS lines and new pads for another $200-300 and your brakes will feel much better too.

4 pot front brakes on top of that are about $600-700 or so. These reportedly give significantly better feel. Thes require wheels wider than stock. Some rally oriented 15x7 wheels or most 16x7 and almsot anything 17" will fit over them.

IF you're having fade issues, the only one of these that may help that is the H6 rear upgrade. Aside from that if you're having issues with fade, then you need bigger rotors up front, cooling ducts, or a combination of the two.
