I feel like im stopping a truck. The brakes are spongey you have to push the pedal in pretty far and it slows down slowly as if it weighs 8000pounds. Could it be something wrong with my brake booster??

lacking a little bit of info. what rotors did you change the fronts out to?
did you bed the pads into the new rotors?
Did you clean the rotors to make certain you didn't have any grease/ ETC on the rotors back side and front?

If the brakes are feeling spongy then you probably did not have them bled well enough. Using the 2 man system is the best way to insure that there is no more air in the system.

Would the stock axles on a 2.2L (with drums in the rear) work with the entire rear 2 pot setup (hubs, knuckles ect)? I'm about to buy the whole rear setup and swap it but I wanna make sure its gonna work with my stock axles.

That is correct, they'll bolt right up ...just make sure your wheels clear the calipers

Yes, the 4 pots will bolt directly to the knuckle and all you need are the rotors and pads to go with the calipers. The rear 2 pots you need a conversion bracket.

So I have already done my 4 pot upgrade and I am getting the rest of my parts to slap on my rears. But I am confused as to why I need the 06/07 hub. I haven't actually measured the dust shield bolt pattern but they look exactly the same as my rs. Has anyone else gotten to that point and hit a wall because of fitting issue.

Also start bleeding from the longest brake line first.
