Crosstrek/Imprezza brakes

Recommended Posts

I love the car, hate the brakes. My service advisor hinted it is an Imprezza flaw.  The brakes work but I hate the feel, sometimes I feel like nothing is going to happen when I hit the pedal. ( I miss my TT at time like this...)

 

So question is - has anyone done any brake upgrade and have any recommendations?

Old as hell topic, but I will chime in.

 

 

I upgraded my stock brake lines to stainless steel brake lines.

 

This is what I got:

Goodridge Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit P/N 24218-CL

 

 

The stainless steel brake lines combined with DOT4 brake fluid fix most of the brake feel problems. The brake pedal is just so much stiffer than the stock mushy rubber hoses.

 

 

However, it will be completely solved with some high-performance street brake pads such as Hawk Performance HPS pads.

I had Mann Engineering in Santa Clara do the job.

 

They specialize in Subaru vehicles, so they aren't some generic shop. Also, they're the ones that advertised the lines for the Crosstrek.
