Ok, so I have 13k miles on the car, I assume at the 18k mark i will need to do the fluids and most likely change the rotors and pads, correct?

So the question is, do I buy another set of stockers off a fellow member who has upgraded to jhooks himself (most likely because of the track benefit) or do I just buy Jhooks myself? I do not track much, so thats not a consideration.

How much are jhooks? at what point does it make more sense to buy jhooks vs just buying very low mileage 'take offs' of stock pads/rotors?

Thanks!

Jon

I personally am putting on my DBA slotted rotors this weekend, I have used DBA in the past with Subaru's and never had a problem,

I also loved the fact that you could get the Replacement rings for about $650-675 shipped a set (front or rear set)

Jon,
Certainly at two years/18K miles you should replace the brake fluid, and I'll bet your pads might need to be changed even with just street driving, but if the rotors aren't out of spec then there would be no need to replace them. Personally I believe they'll be fine at 18K miles since you've never tracked the car.

yeah i agree ... when the time comes sure upgrade but i cant see you being close to needing rotors at 18K miles unless you were a track guy

Jon,

If you could have the pads removed and post some pix we could better inform you, but just based on miles driven you could well need new pads now or soon. The Endless MX72 is well regarded for a street pad that can even handle light track duties whilst being low dust iirc. You could buy those from a vendor here and easily replace the pads yourself; it's dead simple.

AP racing rotors do not come with the hats. You have to re-use the OEM aluminum centre hats. So anyone who has take-offs from buying AP rotor rings only has the OEM rotor rings and not the hats as spares. So if you want take-offs from someone, they would have had to go with full hats/rotors such as from Endless, PFC and others.
