    Yes, those are the correct pads for the 06-07 WRX.

    Early 2002's used the D721's and after the split, they used
    the D929's.

    As far as the rotors I am thinking about getting the Brembo 25190 Rear Solid Brake Rotor and Brembo 25646 Front Disc Brake Rotor.
    For brake pads I was looking at Hawks HPS or EBC red stuff.
    Does it matter which rotor comes with which brake pad? Can somebody give me more advice on how to choose new brakes and if I am heading in the right direction.
    Thanks.
    I know this is a long shot but if you still are on clubwrx do you have any feedback on the Brembo rotors you were going to buy?

    I found these and might pick them up.

    Anybody else try these rotors. Thanks for the help.

    Ok, so I have a 2003, and I called the dealer with my VIN, and here's what I got:

    Front pads: 26296SA020

    Rear pads: 26696AE020

    These looked different from the other numbers posted, can anyone decode them for me? The dealer wants $170 for OEM pads, but I'm planning on getting the HPS's.

    I need to install them this week since I'm going to the mountains this weekend. Do any brick and mortar parts stores carry Hawks?
    I haven't found one yet...

    Thanks!

    KNS Brakes

    Front calipers - no divot on center leg = later pad - D929

    Rear pad - ears down low and wider = D770 old rear pad.

    That's the typical 03 setup.

    Hi I have a 03 wrx wagon and I understand the pad difference's but I think the previous owner put the wrong pads on because there's a clear gap between the rotar and the pad on the outside about 2mm, my question is can you tell by looking at the calipier what version it is.

    not that I'm aware- calipers look to my eyes the same

    if you're unsure you can run your VIN through Subaru- they should be able to tell you w/ some certainty

    I know this thread is old, but I am having a major headache replacing front brakes on my 2003 WRX. I had to replace a caliper on the front passenger side and it has turned into a nightmare. I put a new rotor and pads on the driver side and it was fine. As far as the passenger side I have bought a brake caliper set from both Advanced Auto and Napa auto parts, as of today, both won't fit. The car was produced 7/2002 if that helps. Any help/Advise would be appreciated.
