It there is one weakness to the WRX, it is the brakes, and the more power that you make, the more obvious this becomes. Subaru finally addressed this issue in the USA on the 2006-2007 WRX by putting on Subaru’s 4-Pot front brake calipers, and now you can retro-fit these calipers to your WRX and dramatically improve your braking capacity.
The Subaru 4-Pot calipers were first used on the 2000 – 2001 JDM STi, and are what many Subaru Rally Teams are currently using in Open and Group-N classes.
These FRONT calipers are a direct bolt on for the 2002+ WRX, and use the same front rotors as the 2002+ WRX. These will bolt directly to the knuckle, and use the same rotor you already have in place.
There is a difference in wheel size required, so in some applications new wheels or a spacer will be needed. For reference, these calipers will fit under the stock 2002 - 2005 WRX 16" wheels with the use of a 5mm spacer.
The rear 2-Pot will fit the 2002-2005 WRX with the Kartboy adapter brackets and trimming of the backing plate. You will also need 2006-2007 WRX rear rotors. Currently, these are only available in red.
The kit includes:
- 1 pair of calipers - All necessary mounting pins and springs
