'97-99 Legacy 2.5GT, '97-99 Legacy Outback, '98 Impreza 2.5RS, and '98 Forester all use the same EJ25D DOHC engine.

Just about any Subaru's brakes will bolt on, the only exception being the '05+ STIs with the 5x114.3 hubs. Many of them will be essentially the same as what you've already got. WRXs and newer Outbacks/Legacys will have larger brakes that are worth upgrading to.

The WRX has the same viscous rear LSD that your 2.5GT should have, so it's not an upgrade.
