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.

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.
