Fastbrakes should be able to put you some 4pots and larger rotor together for around that price.

I did find a way to get larger brakes...


I sold my '96 and bought an 2004 that came with larger brakes from the factory. and I suggest if you don't want to put the money into a BBK, find a later Gen 3.5RL and swap over the front brake hubs and rear disc and call it a day.

Those are nice set ups and all, but honestly, can anyone justify dropping $2400-$3600 on front brakes only?

Not me, I'd rather have new windows on my house and just swap over something.
