Default Will My RS brakes work on a legacy wagon

my friend has a 1990 Legacy wagon and I am changing everything over on my 98 RS. He is going to take the struts, springs, etc. WIll the brake rotors from my car work on his? Will the sway bars work on his car? I know there was a website a while back that told all this stuff but I can't find it anymore.

Rotors will, brakes will work.

Sway bars will not work.

The only caution I'll give you on the struts and springs is that the RS is a lighter car and may not have as high springs rates. If you have spring rate, damping info for the RS I can check it against info for the 90.

Default No 15"

It doesn't have 15" on it now, but he is thinking about going larger. He is using my rotors on his stock calipers, will that work? Also, I think that the stock spring rate for the car is like 139 and 117; something like that. I am not 100% sure, but it is very close to those numbers. His suspension is shot, so anything will make a difference I think. Thanks for the help.

14" rims will not clear calipers.
