I got to thinkin:

Last time when I lifted my wagon, I had the rear drum brake setup and my braking became pretty bad when I went to 235/75R15 tires. (Brakes almost went to the floor trying to stop)

Has anyone gone with rear-disk setup for their lifted subarus AFTER they lifted their vehicles to notice a difference in braking power?

If so, lets hear your opinions on how noticable the change was..

Thanks.

Yes, they are much improved. That's why everyone does it. It gets rid of the poor pedal from unadjusted rear brakes. Also, you no longer have the mud catching drums to worry about. It's a no brainer!

Yeah, my rear disc's stop my 205/75R15's alot better than the drums ever could. And disc's are easier to clean after a mud bath :)
