  1. Hey! Seeking opinions, had my brakes inspected, bought car at 33000 mi. It has 112000 mi. Same brakes, no issues but figured its time so got them inspected , was told they are at 5 all around. Good reputable shop quoted me $1000.00 for replacing brake pads and rotors. Said that is for OE Ceramic pads and rotors.and said if I had it done at Subaru it would be $1900 , I'm not a cheap skate but I'm also not really rich, I know brakes are important and not the place to scrimp. Does this estimate seem expensive? Thoughts? Wondering ballpark what other members have paid? Thanks
  2. Heya Folks! I've recently acquired a gorgeous 1993 Loyale, a delicious bucket of rust, that's probably been the best car I've ever purchased -- and my very first Subaru! The issues I can deal with and fix are numerous, I just replaced the axles myself, properly torquing the castle nut. Now I'm getting a squeaky / rattling sound coming from the front passenger wheel area. It happens most of the time, but always under acceleration and higher torque. I didn't notice it for a while until I drove through a forest, the trees helped the sound echo back into the car. I took my audio recorder so you guys can hear it. Though it seems like the sound goes away when I use the clutch (there is one instance of this in the recording), it does happen regardless of the clutch being depressed. I had a look and noticed that the caliper piston boot is a little rough, and the brakes drag a little (a little humming noise) when I make a left going over 35 mph. Otherwise, everything seems "okay." ZOOM0013.MP3A Any ideas? Thanks for your thoughts!
  3. I just bought a 2004 Forester with 16" aluminum wheels and it is in need of a little work. First thing on the list is new brakes. Rather than just replacing the factory rotors and a new set of pads are there any simple upgrades that can be done, front and rear. I have read that 06-07 WRX rotors and calipers might bolt right on. However I have not read a definite answer to this. Has anyone here done a similar upgrade? I am looking for simple bolt on, no modifications and I don't want to brake the bank. Thanks
  4. What is a good price for repairing brakes on my 1999 Subaru Outback? That's probably a silly question. It seems I may need to replace the pads on all four tires and perhaps the rotors too. Just one more thing to deal with. Any suggestions on shops in Wenatchee Washington.
  5. Hello everyone, This is my first time checking the brakes on my 1998 Legacy I purchased last year. I want to check the thickness on the rear rotors but I don't know the minimum thickness. I believe that it was embossed on the edge of the rotor but the lettering has rusted off. It's not on the inside either, and I don't know the brand either. Is there a standard measurement or does it vary significantly by manufacturer?
  6. Hi there folks. I have been absent from the forums (and from my shop) for a few months due to 84 hour work weeks. Yikes! They're finally moving my hours back enough that I'm starting some of my planned summer projects on my BRAT. Now I've been researching all afternoon for a thread anywhere on the Internet and only found one in which a guy upgraded his subaru brat hubs to a modern subaru 5 lug. My question is, what all HAS to be changed to get the new hubs? I know I'll need new rotors and brake assembly but can I keep the same struts and tierod and such? I'm looking for cost effectiveness but I will change anything that makes sense to. Thanks in advance! Ratch
