Hello. This pictoral guide should help anyone replace their front pads and rotors on a Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT-86 cars that are so popular. One may want to change their pads/rotors for better braking performance (stop consistently for longer) or because their existing parts are worn.
I installed the following parts, but any pads and rotors for the OEM braking system can work with this guide:
Hawk Performance HP Plus Brake Pads
DBA 4000 T3 Slotted Rotors
Hope you enjoy this guide as it was for me to make it. Please note I do not take responsibility for any damage done to you or your vehicle. Note that this is work on a critical safety system on your car. Customize, maintain, and upgrade at your own risk. Be Safe.
