Default 04 sti brakes

SOOO i might be getting these!! So long as i know they can bolt up im pretty sure they can and ive read it somewhere before that its easiest by just getting the whole hub assembly for bolt up and i thought it might be a good deal. anyone have ideas or thoughts???

For the rears, this would eliminate the issue of the e-brake and caliper adapter. Fronts are bolt on to your hubs so unless you need new wheel bearings I would just move them over.

Couldn't say if the rear hub assembly would bolt up. But if it did...this would be really cool.

Well i saw this on the other forums which i had to sign up for an account to see but it was very well written and it seems like it mated up really well. But i might have to do more research or ill just end up getting 4pot 2pots or was thinking of doing a 4pot h6 upgrade.

should be a direct swap, but you may want to reuse your FXT trailing arms in lieu of the STi units.

Pretty sweet deal, I didn't think I would see many deals that were actually better than what I paid for my Ver.8 Brembo setup. For whatever reason I think the price is scaring people away, thinking it's too good to be true. In Canada we've got a lot of JDM part importers thanks to our lovely 15-year import rule, so the guys who are importing cars are finding they can pay the bills between car sales with a large number of JDM parts.

I could've saved myself another $50 if I had bought those instead of my setup, but mine came with Project Mu pads and calipers with better paint condition.

damn that nice haha, i just got a PM back they upped the price to 950 and i cant shovel that money together i might be picking up a set of used front JDM 4pots and might get the h6 rear upgrade too. I think that would help braking a ton. Dont like the stock non grabby brakes.

I assume it's $850 +$100 shipping then?
or are they really trying to sell them for $950 +shipping now?

yeah, but they've lowered their initial price since then it seems. They probably used to be $950 with free shipping

the red 4 pots clear, but the raised letter JDM 4pots don't clear the OEM FXT 16's.

you could always grind down the raised letters... and repaint the calipers.
