Default 95 Legacy LSI front calipers

Would just like to know if anyone here knows if these calipers are 2 or 4 pots?

I'd be stunned if they're 4-pots. They might not even be 2-pots.

They're probably singles since it's a '95. Mine were singles.

The '97 - '99 Legacy GTs used two-pot front calipers, my understanding is that the earlier stock Legacy models all used single pot calipers. It was the later WRX and STi models that typically used 4 or 6 pot front calipers.

Check the front rotor diameter. If it is less then the rear brake rotor diameter, then its is very likely that you are indeed using single pot front calipers.

Cool guys, appreciate the feedback. Kinda left the worn pads on too long and now its Caliper to Rotor. Not good! Time for new Rotors, pads and front right caliper!

By the way the 2 pots and 4 pot calipers and rotors will bolt on if you buy them with the corresponding brackets.

I converted my 95 Impreza L from 1 pot to 2 pot and it made a big difference.

you could have bought new wrx rotors off ebay and got the cliper brackets off of subarugenuineparts.com, and found someone's used front calipers on here for a little bit more than $180.

you would have 2 pots up front with an inch or so bigger rotor. especially since you had to buy a new caliper anyways. i would take that stuff back, and upgrade since you need to change it anyway. if you can. but, then you would have to run 16'' rims...so maybe not.

4-piston subaru calipers (22b, JDM Sti, 06-07 USDM WRX) are 1-piece and do not have brackets, the caliper bolts directly to the hub. Unless the bolts don't line up, then no luck.

Yeh i bought Slotted/Drilled Rotors and Pads off ebay for $176 with a lifetime warranty against warping, cracking and manufacturers defects. and found a new stock caliper on ebay for $20. There was a set of WRX 2 pot ones on there but they were $90 and the same rotors and pads i bought but for WRX are $192 and then like you said i have to get 16" wheels.
Dont even know why i bought these Rotors, should have just got stock replacement ones as i wanna trade the car in next year anyways on a S4 or Baja

I live in the Albany Area of NY, Had a '95 Legacy LSi, and now have a Baja-T.

You Live in Albany NH, Have a '95 Legacy LSi, and are contemplating a Baja?

Do it man, Baja Turbo FTW. Not a single regret so far.

Wow that is pretty damn weird!!

Yeh me and my girlfriend would like both the S4 and the Baja parked in our driveway within the next couple of years just not sure which will come first. I was just thinking the non-turbo though since the S4 will be plenty of turbo fun. But who knows. It will come down to price at the end of the day. Really want the Baja first though especially since we have to take our own trash to the dump.

It's pretty easy to tell if the caliper is a 2-pot. It will look like this:




I think the 95 LSi has a 2.5 so it wouldn't surprise me if it has 2-pots.

OT, but the baja n/a is a bit of a slug. 3600 pound curb weight witht the same power as the baseline RS.

Best of luck.

Might just have to go turbo then. Wouldnt mind dropping a STI motor in it though.

The 2.5 didn't exist in the Legacy until 1996, and only in the Outback Automatics?

Didn't first gen turbo's come with two pots?

And, you can buy 8 pot aftermarket brakes for Subies now. Waste of money.
