Rear brake upgrade

I was wondering if there was an upgrade for the rear brakes. The only upgrades I know off are for the front. Which include the Diamante/00-01 GT dual piston brake swap. But can't seem to find any mentioned of the rear brakes. Does anyone have suggestions?

This. Swapping in Brembos from an Evo gives amazing results. I recommend doing a brake flush and upgrading the braided lines at the same time.

Do you know which Evo years would be a good fit for the 03 Eclipse gts? Also do you recommend doing all for brakes or just the rear?

Evo 8 and 9
03-06
Evo 10 will not fit. Too big.
07- until they ended production.
They’re bigger and the mounting holes are different.

It is highly recommended to get the full set or your brake bias is gonna be thrown off and you’re not gonna have fun.

Also, take the time and take the extra steps that chad mentioned with the ss lines and flush the brake fluid. Those are the little steps that people talk about that make the big difference.
Good luck!

Brembos won't fit in OEM wheels either. You'll need to make sure your wheels can house the new brakes. Alot of people grab the evo wheels at the same time.

Rear upgrade to fit stock wheels

Rear vented brakes from 1/94 -10/94 production TSi AWDs and GSXs rotors/calipers/brackets will bolt on and fit stock wheels. They are a good upgrade that won't ruin your rear bias and fit perfect inside the dust shield for a good look.
