Question 02 9-5 Aero Rear Brakes Install Questions...

I just picked up a full set of 02 9-5 Areo rear brakes and was wondering a few things; (My car 99 9-3 SE HOT)

1. Are these a dircet bolt on?? Is there any other parts I would need to install these?

2. Will my set of goodridge steel braided brake lines work with these brakes?

3. What kind of brake fluid should I use and where can I get it??

4. Will there be any issues with the E-brake??
Correct me if I'm wrong, doesnt the 99 9-3 SE have a drum set up for its E-brake??

5. How much fluid will I need?? Will 1 liter do it?


Thanks!!

you would be best to get the above lines although ive just used the original steel pipes for now.
you will need to trim the rear backing plate and alter the plate that takes the handbrake release spring.
brake fluid is a personal choice for many but my fave is millers racing 300.

I don't know that I would keep the steel lines..
They work fine with the standard fixed caliper design... But the Aero brakes make use of a floating caliper.. Not sure if I'd want to put that stress on those lines.

You will need brake pads too.

Stainless lines from Goodrich work with them.

You will need the flexi stainless lines Nick sells.

You will need to cut the stock dust shields.

You will need the larger rotors.

NO.. It is additional instead of replacement.. You will have 6 lines like a 9-5 now with the 300mm

Those stainless lines go from the "frame rail" to the rear axle. Nick's teflon coated stainless lines go from the rear axle to the caliper.

6 lines!!??

Ok let me get this straight, check out the pic



So the goodridge line replaces the line in the yellow circle, correct???

The GS line replaces the line in the red circle???

Is that right??

Thanks to Dip for the great pics.

115 is a typo, right?

Or is that for all four calipers, pads and rotors?

I don't know that the front calipers will bolt up, but it's worth trying....

You can always sell them and recoup some of the outlay.

....and the GS brake lines are essential for doing this the right way. I flared my existing brake lines and made them fit, but I was never happy with that. In the end, $60 is cheap money for peace of mind.

I thought the calipers were the same as he had anyway
All he needs is the larger rotors and the claiper bracket.

Yes it is a drum... But it uses the hat of the rotor for the drum.
No modification neccesary for the e-brake.
