GS brake upgrade worth it?

Hi All,

To those who have done the upgrade to the GS calipers and rotors on your legend, is it worth it in stopping power? Was it a noticeable improvement?

My car is a 1995 L four door.

To be honest it's def worth it but noticeable not really. But they are dual pistons and the take a bigger rotor if you use the whole set up. I've done this to my 91 legend but I also have a gs.

Yes im back! Alpha/AlphaTouring!

It is worth it, the true key to better stopping power is brake pads. That's the last area you want to cheap out.
