    Yes your right it has 2 pot rear. The rears the Advance and almost all autopart stores around here have is 1004 and the fronts are 929's Can I just get the hawk pads from Tirerack and those will work.

    Subaru Brakes - Gruppe-S.com

    That is a link to the pads that WILL fit your '06 WRX (scroll down a bit). Gruppe-S sells the HAWK HPS fronts for $83 and rears for $74 both with FREE shipping (cheaper than tire rack).

    yup ^^ the pad FMSI numbers for the 08/09 are front D929, rear D1114

    the 929 is the same front pad as the 03-05 WRX, the rear is rather new

    So anyone with suggestions on good rotors to work with the stock calipers. I dont like how the stock ones rust so quickly sit in my drive way for 2 hours and there is rust all over the, I saw these at tirerack

    I run them and love them (DBA 4000 Slotted front/rear w/Hawk HPS pads for street HP+ for the autoX). Great for a DD/weekend autoXer.

    However, I must say that you could do just as well with some Brembo Blanks, a brake fluid flush and fill (use sythetic), some SS break lines, and a good set of pads (ie Hawk HPS).

    Well I think Im going to get the DBA 4000 front and rears and also going to get some hawk front and rear pads. I tried to call tirerack and their number is disconneted or not working. Those hawk pads have the square backplate with the holes drilled. I know the picture at tire rack are just stock photos but I dont wanna spend $150 and get the wrong ones.

    For the Hawk pads try: GRUPPE-S

    They have Free shipping and their price on the pads is lower than the Tire Rack (I have yet to find them for cheaper).

    As for the DBA rotors, shop around for the best price....but check: Subaru WRX Performance Upgrade Parts - Mach V Motorsports

    Nice $150...wow. It pays to shop around, epecially in this economy. Glad I could help.

    For the SS lines I suggest Technafit (cheaper and just as good as the Goodrich): Subaru 02-09 WRX & 04-09 STi Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines, JSC Speed (shop around for the best price though and contact JSC and they will match, JSC is a very reputable)

    Fluid: I use Valvoline Full Synthetic Brake fluid which you can get at almost any auto parts store for cheap.
