Bigger Rotor Brake Upgrade for the RS

Bigger Rotor Brake Upgrade for the RS

With some information dug up from the forums I tonight collected the needed brake upgrade for my car. More info found here and here.

This will allow me to run about 1 inch large rotors all around, just by getting the proper caliper mounting brackets used on the cars that ran these rotors stock.  The benefit of this upgrade is I can reuse my 2 pot front and rear calipers and run wrx pads all around.  From rockauto.com I was able to source all of the needed brackets for 79 bucks for this upgrade. Then picked the rotors and pads of my choice.

  Before After
Front 10.1 11.5 (2002 Impreza WRX)
Rear 10.4 11.4 (2001 Legacy)

This should be a fairly nice upgrade for the money.  Next we wait for packages and the next warm day, then is when the real fun comes into the room.. bedding the brakes 😀

Ended up with Raybestos rotors and StopTech pads total was under 400 with extra hardware I needed to replace.
