    Go to my build thread it's all there.

    Before you bolt the rear brackets on male sure you have a good tool to cleanly cut the rear heat shield. Also grind the rear knuckle. The KNS brake adapter does not fit correctly without grinding the nuckle.

    Did you break the calipers apart or leave them as a unit? If you busted them apart make sure he doesn't bead blast the area where the calipers mount together.

    I split mine, didnt care lol. The stock wrx lines work but you need to unbolt them from the rear control arm. Then you can configure them around to fit onto the brake caliper. After that re-bolt it to the control arm.

    Starting to clean up the rear caliper hardware since the rest of the kit is going to be here on Thursday.

    I let ALL the hardware sit in liquid wrench for about two days and the. Put it ALL in a bucket of gas for another day. Now steel wool is my friend except for the pistons 😃

    Finished. For now. Just waiting to get the calipers back from being bead blasted and then I can put them back together and re seal them! Btw. Cleaning these parts was a nightmare. Next time I will pay someone with a parts washer to do it
