Default !!~ brake question on GC8

I own a 95 L 1.8 and am having brake problems. My

passenger side front caliper went bad (sticking) My

friend owns a 00 RS and gave me his calipers he had on

his car before he upgraded his to wrx brakes. Will

these calipers from a 00 RS clear my stock 14 inch

factory alloy wheels? Or do I have to buy new wheels. If I can't use these calipers with my wheels I need to know like today because of $$$ reasons. I do have a 4 disc ABS system on my car currently.


I hope to hear from you guys soon,
J K

you need new wheels and new rotors, they will clear 15" wheels but not 14"

Are you sure about that jeremy? As long as he uses the stock mounting plates the caliper should bolt to the stock location and work with the stock rotors.

brad IIRC the calipers on the 1.8's are 1 pots and ours are 2 the swept volume on the 1pots is 10.4 and ours is 10.7.

i could be wrong as that is just off the top of my head. don't forget that the 2 pot is also a larger caliper which will not clear 14" wheels, the brackets are more then likely very different so i don't see a possible hybrid, all you would need is a WRXC wheel set or RS wheel set, or OBS wheel set

You are 100% right. The 95 has 1 pot front brakes, you have to swap the whole shabang to get it to work, and nothing I repeat NOTHING other than the stock brakes clear those dinky wheels! (yes, i know first hand)

ditto what has been said. The one pots on the 1.8 are probably the same or very similar to what was on my legacy stock, and they just snuck those calipers under the 14" rims. Anything bigger, you need bigger rims and larger rotor.
