Brakes and Rotors
I own 2013 Subaru Legacy Premium 2.5 and I get a lot of brake fade since I do a lot of stop and go in San Francisco (If you live in San Francisco, you know there is a stop sign on EVERY block). I will replace brake pads and rotors if they get warped (probably soon) and I have been looking at,,'t have brakes for my year). I will be replacing with slotted rotors, do you guys know any good brake websites or any websites for that matter with good pricing, free shipping? Thanks in advance for taking your time to read this and helping me out.

The only ones hat I have dealt with have been They have met and exceeded all of my braking needs throughout the years. Can't swear that they have your year, but shoot them a email and they will research what will meet your needs.

I've dealt with KNS brakes, a vendor on this site, very good people, quick shipping and great prices!

Yes, I am going with EBC rotors/pads or Hawk HPS pads.

I checked out most if not all vendors on the site but can't seem to find the brakes that fit my year.

email/pm them to ask

also email Hawk or StopTech as well

I doubt the brakes changed much...

I found my Hawk HPS on eBay and Amazon (each had the lowest price front/rear).

Highly doubt you have warped rotors. Most likey deposits left from the pads. Replace the pads and bleed the brakes and bed the pads properly.

You might have to wait awhile until hawk, ebc, etc gets a 2013 to verify any changes from 2010-2012.

You may want to consider going 2010-2012 LGT/3.6R rotors and calipers as an upgrade. These rotors are bigger and vented.

+1 for KNS Brakes.

2008-2012 WRX rotors and brake pads are direct fit. I checked the RCE numbers for 2013 legacy against TireRack's product numbers for WRX.

Check for yourself

I really would steer clear of slotted rotors. The slots create a weak point and if you get the rotors hot enough they could crack. Also many shops will not turn (resurface) slotted rotors.

Invest in a quality set of blank rotors and you'll be fine.
