Default 4 pot Subaru brake calipers.

Noticed my 4 pot calipers where just not up to standard anymore brakes felt weak along with noticing one wheel got a lot more dusty than other turned out 3/4 pistons where stuck.

So went a head and got a fresh fully refurbed pair with some braided lines,race fluid and Kevlar Godspeed pads..

all can say is WOW! Itís like I have another set of calipers on the car.. amazing

hightly recomend you check yours yours if you have the Subaru 4 pots

How much was it for the pair?

I did mine myself was a pain in the *** to get some of the pistons out but made a good job of it in the end... Cost me around £50 all in for a few new pistons and a rebuild kit.

Yours do look good though, and i guess they come with knowledge of quality craftsmanship
