SSB is the only company I know who makes front & rear big brake kits.

SSB - starts at $700 [they have three kits for the front] Rear is $750ish
Rotora - you can get it for $1150
Stoptech - I think they're $1800
TRD - $1900
Brembo - $2000ish

It's $750ish + shipping from NY. Since you're in VA, it shouldn't be that much & shouldn't take that long. You have to call SSB & order it through them.

AEM really isn't a big brake kit 'cuz all you get is rotors.

works with stock calipers...and hey if that's all that you can afford, that's what you get. 20 percent increase in surface area = 33% reduction in stopping distance. Best bang for the buck. or you can throw your money away on a complete "kit" if you like.

True, but through in $200 & you can get SSB's big brake kit that comes with a 12" rotor & an two piston aluminum caliper. It's lighter & provides more clamping force. Plus there's a couple of EC members who have the AEM kit & they said it's more of a show mod than Performance mod 'cuz they didn't feel any difference idunno

got insomnia too, huh? wave
who needs brakes? I just gutted my car and put the TRD brake pads on and it stops on a dime. although I can use stainless brake lines...I can feel the need for that.
