1) What is different about the H6 Rear Brakes? Subaru's literature lists all 3rd Gen. Legacy's with 11.3 in (290mm) Rear Disc's
2) The PN on the DBA Drw. 26700AE010 does not come up in either of the on line Databases I tried. The PN I have for the Rear Disc which covers both L's and GT's from 2000 on is 26700AE04A. This is a 290mm x 10mm Disc with a 170mm Handbrake.
(dbaSteve - this is the number I gave you a while back)
1) Just the diameter. The cars are heavier and wheels are bigger now to fit suitable size rotors finally. Our new WRX's all have 290mm vented rears, the Outback and legacy ( liberty 2.5 ) have 290mm solid rotors.
2) For some reason USDM part numbers are different in some cases for the same part. This number is correct in Aust, Japan, Europe. All 4 wheel disc Subaru's have 170mm handbrakes except for Special edition STi's which have a R180 rear diff for rally / track applications. This version has a 190mm handbrake.
I'm still collecting part numbers for conversion to USDM and I haven't confirmed 26700AE04A yet. The problem is that the left hand doesn't have a clue what the right is doing when it comes to getting global part information. We get more help from you guys than the dealers.
