Default Disc Brakes. Mechanical rear vs Hydraulic front?

They cost about the same and the install seems to require about the same amount of work.
I drive on paved streets only in a very hilly neighborhood. Which should I get?

Thanks

Due to weight transfer upon braking, front bakes are more effective at speed. Hydraulic brakes typically cost more to implement, but are usually better.

I installed hydraulic front and rear. Stops very well. Mechanically speaking it was a challenge and a learning experience. But I do believe in the long run it was worth it.

I did hydraulic discs up front on my rxv. I love them. Super easy to install.

I ordered the Jake's front kit. Any install tips not covered in the instructions?

Thanks
