Hey guys,

Im trying to figure out if this swap is relatively easy to do, or do the STI parts not bolt up at all? Ideally, Id just like to change the hubs and rotors out but I have a feeling that its not going to be that simple and I'd have to switch to a full STI brake setup.

Any suggestions? Hows tos? etc.

Not sure about ther rear on a +'08, but without custom machinings you need to change, in addition to the hubs, the knuckels (front and rear), backing plates, ABS sensors, front struts, brake rotors, and parking brakes.

Doable, but not simple. Different axles may come it to play too.

What's the goal? Wheel fitment?
