OKay, so i spent the last 40 minutes searching in this thread, and using the search function, maybe im retarted, or just not using the correct word combos

But i cannot find out what is needed to convert my04' wrx brakes to an 04' STi brakes.

whoops forgot my question:

Can you simply buy the rotors, pads and calipers like you sometimes find on here or on ebay, and have it be a plug and play event? (i already have 17" wheels so i'll have the clearance)

40 minutes of searching, but you forgot to look at the FAQs at the top of the page.

Fronts will bolt up, but you will need the rotors, pads, calipers, and bolts.

Rears, not so much, and you have to use a brake caliper adapter. I believe Ken@WRXBrakes has one, Dan@MachV has one, and Tom@Kartboy has one.

in addition, just because you have 17" wheels does not mean your wheels will fit the calipers. The STi Brembos are very wide, takes a special wheel to fit them.

thanks for all the info guys, and yes i did look in the faqs at the top, but apparently im just that blind!! ugh haha well +1 dump point for me haha.

But i think as long as my wheels are 17" x 7 that they will fit these calipers. i could be wrong tho

Check out the FAQ in tires/wheels to see what wheels will clear the STi Brembo calipers. As stated, not all 17x7 wheels will clear them.

A quick look at tire rack had 59 17" wheels fitting a '04 WRX and only 29 wheels for an '04 STi. It's a difficult fitment. 50/50 shot?

Best bet is to find an local '04 STi owner that will let you do a test fit with one of your front wheels.

MachV has the kit for the rear with both the brackets and rotors to make the Brembo calipers work. (I prefer Godspeed's kit out of the UK, but the exchange rate makes it too expensive right now.)

If you want to keep 5X100

For the front:
2004 STi rotors
2004-2007 STi calipers
2004-2007 STi pads

For the Rear:
Option 1:
2006-2007 STi R180 rear end
Since you have a wagon you will need to find a set of 2001-2006 JDM STi wagon axles
2004 STi knuckles/hubs
2004-2007 STi calipers
2004-2007 STi pads
2004 STi rotors
Modify the rear end of your drive shaft to fit the R180 bolt pattern. If you have an Automatic just get a 6speed drive shaft.

Option 2:
2004 STi knuckles/hubs
2004-2007 STi calipers
2004-2007 STi pads
2004 STi rotors
Drive shaft shop custom axles

Option 3:
2004-2007 STi calipers
2004-2007 STi pads
2004 STi rotors
Godspeed inc. 10mm thicker Ebrake shoes
Caliper mount adapters from Godspeed, TWR, or the KartBoy ones may work too

If you would have searched through the stickies for 5 minutes you would have found this same information. But I thought I would be a nice guy.

Also if you have an automatic transmission you will need to get a 2002-2005 WRX 5speed or 2004-2007 STi master cylinder.

Hilarious.

How about option 4:
Kartboy brackets
DBA rotors

Readily available as a package from fastwrx for much less than the other options.

i think option 4 the best. i was reading through the other 3 going f**k this. but not im still interested.

as my car sits right now, this mod is not needed, hovering around stock power, but in a few years (once out of college) i will turn this into a track car.

I need new brakes this summer, so i was thinking of just doing this, and having it ready for the track days.

Waste of money for the long run?

Also, how does the brake life compare to just replacing with OEM parts? (oem wrx parts i mean)
