    Got my old subaru back need help!

    Hi guys been a long time,I had a wrx that had been upgraded with a sti whole engine,I have just managed to get the car back after a year it has only covered 3,000 since I last sold it,when I brake I get a lot of judder could this be the discs warped or bads bad as it has been sitting for so long or could this be because of the wheel bearing has a bit of play init.
    Also power steering pump has a leak when this is full up but it emptys within a day then makes a really bad squeaking noise I'm hoping a slit pipe or is there a common problem with the pump,hopfully someone will share some light on here.
    So if the brake and pads are the problem what are a good upgrade.
    Thanks a lot.

    If it only shudders when braking, then it's probably discs. Wheel bearing would shudder all the time when it was rolling.

    Replace the pump or lines if they have leaks. Also replace the belt if its been sitting for awhile.

    Hi what belt would you say change sorry ?? Cambelt or power steering belt ?
    I'll try and bed the pads and discs in again I only changed them last year to red stuff and the cars done about 4,000 miles since,just the owner I sold it to didn't give a **** about it and that's a shame what pads and discs are recommended on this forum but I don't wanna spend to much cheers for the replys.

    Little update brought these today spoke to one of the guys at Godspeedbrakes very helpful and seem to know there stuff

    Didn't want to go mad on a set up as I don't use it as track days etc but I hope there a good all round disc and pad setup,I'll update when I get them fitted I'm also upgrading the brake like braided is this pointless or worth doing all 4 for 100 inc parts and labour ?
    These are what I purchased !
