upgrading rear brakes on classic

Hi peeps, I'm looking at upgrading my rear brakes. I have standard rear setup at the moment. Looking initially at getting P1 pot system until can afford something better. Will the disks and calipers bolt straight onto a 94 import? Or will I need different shoes etc? Regards Gareth

dont need to change them matey, the balance is pretty far forward on them, decent set of pads and disks will be enough

was going to say the same thing, just get some decent pads and make sure the fluid is changed periodically
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

As long as its not a v3 sti i have adaptor brackets available along with reconditioned 2 pots, i can also supply uprated discs and pads for the brakes you currently have now, check out Subaru Performance Parts for a look at the calipers etc, and if you want any prices on discs and pads let me know, its best to email me as im not on here often, info@scoobyworx.com
