03 brake upgrade question
Hey guys I'm sure it's been asked I searched and got the gyst of it but wanted to ask myself. I'm planning on doing an 06/07 upgrade on my 03 do I have to swap spindles and all or just the caliper set bolts on to my 03 spindles?? Same front and rear?? Thanx for the responses

OP-I don't think they will clear your wheels.... I might be wrong....

@Vew has done this.... I don't remember if it's a direct swap or not..... Look his user up and search his posts OP.

Fronts is a direct swap. You can even use the 03 rotors . Rears you will need the kartboy adapter brackets and to trim the backplates . You will not be able to reuse your rotors in the rear. What wheels you have depends on clearance. Stock 16 inch wheels may require 5mm spacers.

Correct. Direct bolt on for the fronts. Will not clear factory rims. Rears require a lot more work if you convert it using Subaru parts. I am less familiar with the adapter brackets since most of my research was done before the 06/07 WRX came out.
