Don't think so..

Most of them ran 4 pot front, 2 pot rear brakes. Same as '06-'07 WRX. The '05 LGT set up is a good alternative though.

Are you running a R160 or R180 rear diff?

if you have DCCD the rear end should be a R810

if not, R160

Ver 5 R180 rear rotors are hard to find. They run a different size ebrake then USDM stuff. IIRC the front rotors are just wrx size. 300zx turbo pads work in the rear.

It's an R160 diff you've got Jesse. Most STi's came with one-pot (like yours!) rear brakes.

i went to the dealership today i found the pads from an 07 legacy gt will fit with exception that there is a vent cut in the midddle of the pads. other than that they were exactly the same. the rotors im still looking for the 06-07 legacy rotors were the same diameter but they were non vented. they didnt have one rotor # from that year which may be the one i need. any more ideas on rear rotors?

Vent cut in the middle of the pads? That shouldn't be a problem.... Do the pads have one solid "ear" on each side?

The '91-'94 Legacy Turbo had single piston calipers clamping onto vented rear rotors. I can't remember the size off the top of my head, though......
