mike saunders LOL......

I'm sorry!!! I should have been clearer....

I bought a set of rear calipers and good pads for $120....They're staying on the car for the foreseeable future

re: SS lines: Keep em!

The rear SS lines replace the rubber lines that run from the body down to an anchor point on the rear axle beam, where they connect to the calipers with a metal line. The metal line is the one that you'll need to replace with properly sized lines. You can always cut and flare the existing lines, but $50-60 isn't much to pay for peace of mind....

CooperS7777 Eh I wont be doing it right now - I want to get the new bumpers and catalog kit on this weekend, then worry about the breaks when I get back in August. But I think I will be going to the aero rear calipers - if you still have yours when I get back Mike, Ill hit you up.

Are the lines different, as I allready have SS lines for the rears, just not installed?

saab4life93t yes considering my winter wheels are 15's but i might have something lined up for a winter beater lol would goldwing have something that newor is there another place to get 9-5 rears
07-13-2007 02:56 PM
mike saunders 16s are the minimum, so that takes some re-thinking about the winter wheel situation.....
07-13-2007 02:49 PM
saab4life93t what is the minimum size wheel for a rear brake conversion like that??? im guessing 15's...
07-13-2007 02:44 PM
mike saunders Yup.

Find the rear calipers and 300mm rotors from an 02-04 9-5 Aero, or an 02-03 9-5 Arc with the V6....

Nick T sells the rear brakes lines. They're a must-get item.

With grippy rear pads, it's a nice balance with Viggen front brakes.

Rear brake options

What are my options for new rear brakes? Im running stock cali's in the front with slotted rotors and green stuff pads. SS lines in the front and I have the rears waiting around for when I get around to replacing the brakes.

Kinda want to do something easy while still maintaining/upgrading the performance. I also wouldnt mind a bit of rear bias.
