Default 6 speed conversion question

I will be buying a 6 speed from an 04 sti. I will be getting the r180, knuckles, drive shaft and rear rotors...my question is do i just need the rear calipers? I dont know if i can still use the parking brake from my 02 wrx or if i have to get some special rotors instead of the stock sti ones that are coming off of the 04. Any information will help me greatly...thanks

-Andy

Your WRX axles wont fit the R180

The STI axles wont fit your WRX hubs.

You're going to need a 3.9 R160 to reuse your WRX hubs/brakes or get STI rear assemblies + brakes.

The ebrake assemblies are larger on the STI.
