Angry 2002 Legacy GT Limited Front Rotors - HELP!

I am absolutely at my wits end. I am trying to find the Beck-Arnley part number (or a factory part # I could xref) for the 11.5in Rotor and associated brake pads that are on my wife's 2002 Legacy GT Limited 2.5T I have tried all of the part numbers that AutoZone shows for the 2002 Legacy (GT or not), and I have even tried what AutoZone had in the computer for the 2002 WRX after reading some posts here that made me think the brakes from the WRX made it onto the GT in that year.

I am completely at a loss, I have never had such a hard time finding parts for a car in the mainstream auto-parts market. Any help the community here can provide would be GREATLY appreciated.

WRX brake rotors are the same size as the Legacy GT 00-04. Legacy L's 00-04 got 10.7" rotors.

02 WRX front brake pads will also work with your brake calipers.

I thought the 2000-2004 LGT brakes were the same as a GC8 2.5RS, no?

The 2.5RS has the same rotor size as the BE Legacy L's (10.7") hence why they too also upgrade to WRX sized brakes.

Well, then how do I have 15" steelies on my car right now if my rotors are the same size as a WRX?

Come on man, you know that topic has been beaten to death everywhere. We all know that The GC8 on the boards is the term for all 93-01 Imprezas.

oops my bad then that sucks, I actually have bigger brakes than you guys? (WRX front brakes right now) I thought I was just keeping up with you GT guys...

So I guess it boils down to, measure your rotor, if it's less than 11", you can use RS rotors, if its larger than 11", you use WRX rotors...

Just stick to the two letter code, it saves on typing too
