'08 brake upgrade

9046 Views 33 Replies 16 Participants Last post by  Planner
My biggest complaint with my '08 2.5i 5spd is how crappy the brakes are when coming to a hard stop, for one reason or another. What are my options when it comes to upgrading? Something simple as upgrading brake pads or a full XT conversion? I done a little research but I guess I'm looking for advice from member who have done something to their 3rd gen.

Yes the calipers are different. No brackets are required.

It's very easy. Just go on Rock Auto and order Legacy GT Calipers front and rear and of course get rotors and pads. Everything will just bolt right up. Then you can send back your old calipers for a core refund, so it ends up the calipers are only like $50 each.

All the parts cost is like around $500 (after core refund)
old thread resurrected - but applicable to me.

LGT setup fits under OEM wheels? I run OZ Ultraleggera for the summer tires but OEM wheels with the winters on my 06.
You need 17" wheels
Both OEM and my OZ wheels are 17".
