I have a bone stock '02 Foz and was wondering if there are any WRX brake swaps I could do to it. I don't do any AX or track days with it right now but I don't want to rule them out. I just ordered some StopTech front pads for it that I have yet to install. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!!

I put a set of 02 WRX fronts on my 02 and they were larger. The WRX rears were the same size as the stock rotors on my car though so I went with H6 rears instead.

The best factory brakes you can fit under a 16" wheel are probably the 06-07 WRX four pots. They don't fit under the SF stock wheels though so if you're limiting yourself to those particular 16s I would say 02-03 WRX fronts like I am running now. The Legacy GT fronts require a 17" rim.

I was referring to 05+ LGT as the <04 were pretty much the same as our stock ones I believe. The 05+ LGt rears fit under 15" wheels I believe so you should be good with those.

With 02-03 WRX fronts and H6(H4) rears, is brake bias maintained? Any need to upgrade brake master cylinder(s) or proportioning valves?

THANKS! Oh and if the answer is in your build thread, I will be reading it!!!
