I can still get a selection of high quality pads? They won’t just be specific to the Brembos...Maybe I miss understood. You just want to go to 4 piston monoblock calipers in the back to match the 4 piston monoblocks in the front.
No. Brakes are balanced a specific way. Usually front biased meaning your front brakes are going to be larger and capable of far more heat dispersion. Your rear brakes will be smaller, provide less absolute brake ability and for a reason.
Higher brake bias to the rear is going to make the car dangerous and unpredictable.
I have no idea what to even look for in a pad with Brembos. I ran semi-metallic pads on my last car once. I wore the rotors down almost clean through and the pads were not even 50% worn. I ran low dust ceramic after that. These current rotors get rust spots on them every wash and any morning with dew. Have to grind that rust off the first few stops. So at some point I’m definitely going to be looking for some stainless cross drilled slotted something nice rotors. But as far as replacement pads... no idea what I’m looking for, like at say... SubiSpeed...You could invest your money in to other places and get better results. Like suspension and handling. Honestly if you want to do anything to your brakes, get stainless lines, good fluid, and a nice set of pads and rotors.
I looked into those. Your post really pointed me in the right direction. I was way overplayed with what I was looking at. Just narrowing down between 3 rotors. Why did you choose that fluid?EBC is good. So are Hawk pads. On my STi I have goodridge SS lines, Motul 5.1 fluid, DBA clubspec 4000 series rotors, and hawk HPS pads. The stopping power is incredible. I also have Brembo's with having an STi.
