    A BTW for 04+ owners considering the "H6" uprated rotors

    You don't need to figure this out w/ the car on jackstands, the caliper and bracket off and a couple of hours before heading out to a two track event.

    First you need 02/03 rear pads (had this covered) as some genius decided to change the rear pads. Second and this is the part I flubbed up on- you need the 02/03 pad guides/clips- the 04 ones won't work w/ the 02/03 pads. They'll clip to the bracket fine but the pads won't fit.

    On the bright side I've got one rear dust cover drilled and off

    I was at about the same spot when I said, "damn, I guess I'm called the Subaru dealer."

    I ending up running over to the local one about a half hour before they closed to buy a whole '02 rear pad set even though I had some hawks at home.

    Oh well, now I have OEM "winter" pads...

    Mine was a little worse- I had both brakes off-pads out/regreased, both dust covers drilled and off, rotors on- headed for a track day- then discovered the pads didn't work- nearest dealer 150 miles away- rotors off, old rotors back on, brackets off- old brackets on, pads back in- off to my track day w/ the same setup I had originally.

    How long after you did the H6 upgrade, did you apt for the 2pot setup? What caused you to make that decision?

    I think it was about a year later- I got a deal I couldn't refuse Already had the four pots, so I figured I'd go all out.

    Ofcourse mine was installed the old fashioned way- now Tom at Kartboy has bolt on adapters!
