So, I've had rear disks for my Subaru sitting in my garage for... about 4 months now. I finally got around to swapping them in. Other than a broken hard line in the rear (the flare nut was frozen onto the line, so it twisted the line and broke it) which was an easy job to replace, it was very straightforward & simple.

Then, I bled all the corners, because I can't remember bleeding the fronts before - I don't think I ever did.

Man, does it stop now! It's a high fairly firm pedal, and has MUCH more confident braking.

Just thought I'd share. :D

The coolant leak seems to have fixed itsself, and the odd handling (for those who read my other thread) I suspect is just due to warm Blizzaks bending & shifting & basically being soft rubber in the warmer weather. They're leaving soon.
