I bought these calipers to upgrade the brakes on my 2008 XT, but now have decided to stay stock.

Paid $360 shipped. Asking the same.

All 4 calipers + 2 rear rotors.

PM me with questions, or with your # if you want me to send pictures via text message.

Working a ton these days, so it might take me a day or 2 to respond.

Ditto...why did you decide not to change them over?

When I bought the car I had big ideas. BNR turbo, tune, brakes etc...

It's my dd, and I have a race car project that is taking my time & $ right now.

So I'm just going to leave it stock, and use my fun-money to fund the race car. (91 GTI VR6 Turbo, FIA Cage, mostly for hill climbs)

Can you post pics up when you get a chance?

I'm assuming that these are a direct bolt on to any 05-09 OB?

Also, no front rotors? Are they the same size as your OBXT's?

Nice...well. I have to think a bit more. I have big plans for my XT as well. However, I am not working right now. I just dropped like $2,500 on her in the last few weeks for my suspension and new wheel/tire package. i am going to try to wrap up th current work my Monday.

I'll check on it for a bit.

I'll try to post pics soon, but may not be until Sunday. I'm flat out @ work today & tomorrow.

AFAIK they are direct bolt on. No front rotors only because the seller couldn't fit them in the flat rate boxes, and I thought it would be best to start with fresh rotors up front. They are larger than the OBXT, hence being an upgrade in stopping power.

Good price on these assuming they come with the caliper brackets also...do they?

To anyone who buys, you need the calipers, brackets, rotors, and pads and you should be good to go.

Sunday evening bump. I don't "need" to sell these, but they're not doing anyone any good sitting on a shelf...

That kind of oxidation is normal for untreated cast aluminum. They will look exactly the same in 20 years.

Do they come with the mounts so they are a direct bolt on for a 06 outback XT?
They come as pictured. I've never test fitted them, but based on what others have said, it appears that you need brackets.

Would rethink keeping the stock setup, one of the best "mods" I did to my OBXT.

And that price is quite good even w/o front rotors.

Thanks KTMRider, if they don't sell, I just might install them when I need brakes.

In the short-term, I'm well over budget on my race car project. If I can get what I paid for these, it will put a small dent in my project costs...

Are you guys talking about the caliper brackets? As fas as I can tell, these will bolt right onto a third gen Outback. ****, these will bolt right onto my second gen Outback. Rear rotor diameter from the BP/BL Legacy GT/3.0R is the same as the second gen 3.0 Outbacks but they have vented rotors instead of solid. Looks like the buyer would need a set of front rotors and bolt everything on.

Did this same swap on a built '05 OBXT and everything was a direct bolt on:29:
