Out of curiosity, is this from Rehagen Racing?
The price isn't too bad but keep in mind a few things.
1. You have to pull the axles to install the rear caliper brackets in order to use the gt500 rear rotors.
2. Your front brakes take care of 80% of your braking. So unless your hardcore into autoX or track days at road courses. The rear gt500 setup would be purely for aesthetics.
3. All factory front wheels will not clear brembos. Excluding the wheels that come with the track pack and brembo package cars of course. You can get around this with some 5mm hub centric spacers. Also some cheap aftermarket wheels, depending on their width, offset, and Backspacing, will not clear the brembos.
If you are just interested in the front setup. Keep looking around. You can typically get the whole setup used for $600-$800.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
