Hey guys,

Anyone running one of these? Wonder how it would fit on a Forester SJ? Gonna go with Perrin but they are only for LHD.

Easy, I've been looking at that item because it'll work well and I'm seeking a budget brake upgrade too. However, upgrading the brake pads is probably a better bang for your buck.

Does anyone know what type of brakes our SJ's have? I believe they are similar to the previous Liberty GT's with a single piston setup?

For my driving style, I'm still ok with the pads. I'm looking to stop the flex that I experienced sometimes when I brake too hard. It stops like I want to and where, but just that spongy feeling right at the end there made me go "Sh!t!" couple of times.

P.S. Just that one last mod... I promise...

Yeah. The rest of future goodies are necessary as part of maintenance. LOL.

2015 possibly will fit. Looks like the ones for 08-14 WRX/STi will fit, and fit SH too. Posting Want to Buy soon if any bite.

Itchy........ waiting for just few more days for my VISA new billing cycle.

As other post, 2 x Cusco 692 561 A have arrived. Test fitting and couple of photos from jayc0au, I can confirm that Cusco 692 561 A will not directly bolt on to SJ XT Premium. It's possible to use it but one of the brake pipe (different to XT non Premium) need to be adjusted or have it custom made so it slightly goes around BCS.
As far as my test fitting on XT Premium, I don't see any issue bolting this BCS to an XT. Bolt holes line up with strut tower holes. I'm sure he will confirm it once he pick it up and install to his car.
Can anyone recommend any shop that can custom made brake pipe in Sydney? Or any good mechanic can do it?

So I went to pick up the BCS from Easy and we did a test fit on my 'non premium' XT and..... it FITS!!! :lol:
Pity its not a direct bolt on for the premium owners due to a brake pipe getting in the way, sorry Easy...

We even observed the brake cylinder moving when the brakes pedals were fully applied :shock: I'm now confident the BCS will do its job! Its going on this weekend :)

Ok, the BCS is installed. I managed without taking the wheel off and did it myself. My kids offered to help with plastic tools. :lol:

Turn the wheel 100% to the right to gain access to the bolt holes on top of the wheel arch.

The BCS is connected by two bolts. Thank goodness for Subaru's forward thinking design. The bolt nut on the far right is actually welded on the panel!
Image

The other bolt is supplied by Cusco. With the help of a vice grip, you can vertically side the bolt up the strut and finally make it through the hole. The weight of the vice grip actually holds the bolt in place to easily mount the BCS from under the bonnet.
Image

Mount the BCS through the 2 bolts but remember to use the spacers provided by Cucso. Be careful not to drop anything, its a tight fit. :lol:
Image

Tighten the bolts, the rest is obvious :!:
