Hi, one of my brake calibers started jamming roughly 6 months ago. And recently i've been trying to find a replacement with little to no succeess. The car was originally bought from Florida and shipped to Finland where I live. Finding the same kind of brake caliber is proving to be hard as hell. I'll put few pictures here incase some of you might identify what the current ones are and thus help me out finding a new one.









Thx of any info u guys can give me..

That's a standard US model new age WRX caliper. It will not match the correct EU WRX calipers, since it is a single piston design. You can either look for it at a US dealer, a US wrecker, or from an EU dealer that has parts for a non-WRX Impreza that might fit. I would look closely at the 1.6L TS calipers, or the 2.0L GT, or even an Outback Sport (any motor) and see if those fit if you want to shop locally.

Another option: If drivers there are as, um, delicate with their Imprezas as they are here in the US, wreckers should have plenty of spares... See if you can convert your brakes to the correct EU dual (or later multi) piston versions. However, in doing so you will require the correct EU wheels or an equivalent.

I think you'd be better off looking for EU spec WRX calipers if you're going to swap all of them. Look at shops locally, and if you still have issues, look in the US. Shipping 4 calipers from the US would be fairly expensive, I would think.
