    So far here is what I would of done differently.. Apparently you don't need to replace the brake lines.. Stock work fine, HOWEVER... I had to use OEM rear for now because for some reason I was sent 11 Wrx lines and not STi lines. Braided Wrx lines will not work. I had to change the routing of the hoses a bit to fit. Also I did this as a write up and did this at my parents house in a driveway like you all would do.. Well I don't have the tools here I do at home so my rear dust shields need to be drilled out at a later time.

    Did you get a new heatshield or cut the stocker to fit over the downpipe?

    So here are some pics, I was going to do a write up on this whole set up which is why I wasnt at my house in these pics and in a driveway with hand tools.. But some of the shots I needed pics of was when my GF had to be inside the car holding the brakes while she released the ebrake allowing me to have the rear rotor removed and work on getting the KNS adapters to fit properly. you can see that I literally hacked the **** out of my rear dust shields, I did this because I had no way of getting them off cleanly there in the driveway, so Tin snips was my tool of choice. I needed to use my grinder slightly around the original caliper bracket that is cast into the rear hub to allow the KNS bracket for the brembos to bolt on properly. Anyway enjoy these..Click image for larger version.

    Great pics and I'm a Matco fan (though from a distance; as an absolute newbie amateur I cannot justify the expense over Craftsman or lower). Thanks for that post, genuinely useful IMO.

    As a long time non amateur newb there is absolutely zero reason for anyone wanting to spend the money on anything more than craftsman tools. They are lifetime guaranteed (for newb amateurs) and a great product. I have been denied replacement while wearing a technician uniform, but just took the tool back on the weekend in normal clothes and passed just fine. If your using the tools day in and day out there are many reasons Id suggest other brands and different tools.
