    why would you want the brakes? That is pretty much a waste of your time.

    The brakes off a WRX aren't all that different from the RS brakes, you aren't going to see much (any?) improvement.
    Drag racing is for fast cars. Solo 2 is for fast drivers.

    lol....good luck people that work at places like pick ur part and other auto wreckers like that. The employee's get the first stab at the cars but you only need brakes. Its not like your looking for a turbo unlike me lol.......good luck on the search though
    It is frustratingly reliable, truly the cockroach of automobiles.

    why not just pay for new brakes?

    or get a set of bigger aftermarket brakes?

    used brakes is like buying used underwear... sure it might work... and serve its purpose... but why?

    I only want the front caliper bracket so i can fit the WRX size rotors on my car. There are a lot more options when you have WRX size rotors.

    BBK are expencive. I couldn't find one under 1400. I can get the caliper bracket pretty cheap, put on some decent rotors, some SS brake lines, some better brake fluid, better pads and then swap the H6s into the rears (which are about an 1" larger)

    nice an cheap!

    H6 vs RS


    WRX vs RS
