Brake Upgrades


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any advice on upgrading the front brake system on my 2006 Legacy GT.? The rotors continuously warp with what i call normal use (no track time and no hard braking). I would like to keep to factory upgrades, so I am wondering if Spec B brakes are better and if they will fit. As well, I am wondering if STI brakes will fit.

Bro, don't upgrade your FRONT brakes. That is a bad plan. Upgrade ALL your brakes or replace with oem. You think unbalancing your braking power in a DD is a good idea?

 

Go read the reviews on DBA 4000 rotors and hawk HPS pads. DBA is a top notch brake mfr. and their "kangaroo paw" heat dispersement pattern is supposed to be very good at resisting warping.

 

If you can't afford the $500 all around for the dba 4000 rotors, stoptech slotted run about 350 for a full set but personally, I would never buy cheap as far as brakes and tires go and the stoptech don't have the kangaroo paw pattern.

 

I am running dba4000 and hps. My review is under reviews with a lot of other people...

 

ONCE AGAIN DO NOT UNBALANCE YOUR BRAKES IN YOUR DD

losangeleslgt: stopteck brakes are one of the best brakes out there. they are way better than the dba 4000. the dba 4000 are nice, but you are way off saying stopteck is cheeper. ya cheeper in price, but that is it.

They are cheAper not chEEper. I am wondering what you are basing your opinion on? I read a LOT of reviews and chatted with distributors before trying DBA4000. They offer Thermal Stability Profiling which Stoptech does not. (In addition to thermographic paint, efficient kangaroo paw pattern, etc)

 

I have used stoptech and they are fine. They were fine on my old Honda too, or for a OEM replacement. If you are replacing your rotors and were going to use stock, absolutely, toss in some Stoptech instead!!!

 

If you are going to compare Stoptech to DBA lets compare apples to apples! The "cheeper" Stoptech = DBA Street Series;), not the DBA4000 which are a step up from the Stoptech/DBA SS.
