    Regarding seized caliper bolts on 05 sti brembo brakes

    I'm not sure what year sti actually has the problem of the brake caliper bolts seizing due to the bolt corroding with the caliper metal but did that carry over to the 06 wrx brakes. Mine aren't "brembo" but I'm doing my brakes tomorrow and i want to know what i might be up against. Thanks

    The problem with seized bolts on STI Brembos occurs because of galvanic corrosion. If the calipers are made of a dissimilar metal (STI Brembo calipers are cast aluminum) than the bolt (steel), you'll set up conditions for galvanic corrosion. If you use anti-seize and don't overtorque the bolts, you won't have problems removing them.

    So, if the WRX calipers are steel, you should be okay. It may require some elbow grease, but you should be okay.
