Because I am looking to do a drum brake conversion soon I have been offered a full set of 02-05 JDM WRX brakes. 300$ for front and rear including all mounting hardware.

Apparently they arent 4 pots though. Im guessing JDM 02-05 impreza wrxs didnt come with the same break setup as american cars did.

Just wondering if that makes sense to someone, and if they should bolt on with little issues. Id like the 4 pots but right now its hard to find a good package. Do I really need the extra pistons..:bling:

They'll bolt on but don't expect the same performance you'd get from a set of 4/2 pots. I've done the upgrade on mine and its night 'n day. Regardless of which calipers you go with, the most important thing you can do is flush out that old brake fluid and replace with fluid from a new can.

I do have a set of 4/2 pots for sale, and I'm in Ottawa so we're not to far away. PM me for more details
