    No, they will bolt to the knuckle, but the OP will need new rotors with a 5x100 bolt pattern.

    02 WRX Wagons aren't 5x100?!

    You confused me. I was saying that No, STI stuff will not swap over but, 06-07 WRX stuff will

    Ah but the Calipers ARE a direct swap! The rotors are not

    ahh well. thanks guys thats a bit more work than i was looking for. maybe later, i have a leaking front caliper. great time for a easy blot on upgrade. ill search up the hole thing before i go WRautoXing this summer. still sounds like a easy job, but ill just replace the bad caliper for now as my brakes are otherwise newer(6 months ish)

    actually, dont mind the nevermind. better braking on the way from grimmspeed in the form of a master cylinder brace. nuts thats clever. i was ordering parts there anyhoo and splurged a bit. that should improve my stocker a bit.

    Why is it too much work? Just buy the STi calipers and caliper bracket, then get 2004 STi rotors like this: DBA 4000 Series T-Slot Slotted Rotor Front Subaru STI 2004-2013 at RallySportDirect.com

    The rear STi Brembos require special rotors and adapters to bolt to the knuckle/ clear the parking brake shoe. However, Brembo fronts and H6 rears are a good combination.

    06-07 calipers are a direct swap over to 02-05 wrx's. SAME ROTOR.
    Here's proof:
    02 wrx wagon front rotor
    Centric Plain 120 Series Rotors

    07 wrx wagon front rotor
    Centric Plain 120 Series Rotors

    I also know, because I did this exact thing to my 02 wagon. Only thing that won't fit are the stock wheels! (needs 5mm spacer to clear the calipers)

    We were talking about the STi Brembos.

    Ah I didn't read carefully. Usually when I see 4/2 pot I think of the 06-07 brakes.
    Thanks!
