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.
