So I have an 02' wrx, a recent purchase, and noticed today after having to stop rather abruptly that the stopping power on this car is horrible. The pedal seemed to pulsate, fade, then the car locked up and the car got a little squirrelly....I wasn't going fast and I barely stopped in time.
So with that said, aside from a big brake upgrade, what's the best brake upgrade...better pads/cross-drilled/slotted rotors? braided brake lines? brake fluid? a combination of all of those? I'm new to these cars but not cars in general...and I've never really had to worry about brakes on a car to the point where I felt unsafe, so I've never had to upgrade. Any suggestions, experiences, information would be great...thanks in advance.
