Im doing the protege conversion and I just got my brake pads in today(ebc red stuff pads) and I noticed they are tiny!! Well compared to the front pads atleast, is the right?? I hope I didn't get the wrong ones..

why didn't you just do the "other suposedly" conversion upgrade?..I believe is the 99+ Millenia rear brake conversion. I thought that the rotors on these ones were a bit bigger and they also don't seize up as bad as the mx-6 & pgt's not to mention the BIGGER ROTOR on the millenia and the fact that I believe the pads on the millenia also have a better contact point on the rotor and it grabs on the rotor itself a little bit more compare to the mx-6 and pgt's also. I had never heard anything about the protege conversion upgrade. I thought it was the actual Millenia that was the best thing to go with?
Is true - Their is a rear upgrade brake conversion and it comes from the 99+ Millenia!
Is suppose to be better and totally way better than the "protege" one...since with the Millenia you get a little bit bigger rotors and the pads that are use with the Millenia upgrade touched the surface of the rotor better as well. I'm sure I seen it on a site before. I will do some searching to bring this info to light and people can see that is a real easy fast and yet still better upgrade than the Protege conversion - Is nice because with the Millenia you don't have any issues with the rear e-brake not bolting up since what makes this all possibly is the fact that you have to use the following.
now that I think about it. Im probably thinking of the rear 98-99+ 626 brake upgrade - But I could have sworn I saw a post where someone said that the rear brake uprade was from the 98-99+ Mazda Millenia 626 maybe?.........I don't know - Im just confused all the way here.
98+ 626 rear's are a bolt on upgrade. Never heard of the millenia rear set up being used anywhere before.
Im running the mazda6 front set up, and the 98+ 626 rear's on my own beater with great results.
and im 99% sure you could make the mazda6 rears work, including the ebrake if u used the 98+ 626 ebrake cable, as the 98+ 626 is a few inch's longer then the 93-97's. and the entire issue using the mazda6 rears is our stock ebrake cable is a few inch's too short. Ive covered this a few times, in a few threads, on a few forums. But no one has tried it yet.
