I'm pretty sure it is just the rotors that need replacing. The stock brake lines should be fine to use

The rear ss rotors are app 1-2 inches bigger than the v6's so you can either replace the v6 dust shields (which is a PITA) or trim them by 5/8"

But I would recommend getting ss lines personally...

It's a pain in the ass to remove and replace the stock v6 dust shields so I would, if I were you trim your rear dust shields by 5/8" of an inch to make the rotors fit.

This thread should help

I suggest adding on a set of stainless steel brake lines as well. Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

I would change the break lines also. So you would need Calipers, Rotors, Pads, and Break Lines. Like Lil' Nasty Stated the rear dust shields will need to be trimmed down to clear the rotors and it should be a straight forward install. Also depending on how many miles you have I would consider a break fluid change.

You will need the ss lines due to the ss line being longer than the v6 lines, good time to go to stainless lines if money is there to blow, but like others have said rotors, calipers, hoses and youll be ready to bleed some brakes
