Default Are WRX and FXT rotors the same size?

I'm looking to upgrade my rotors and pads without having to do a full brake kit.

Does anyone know if the FXT (Forester XT) and the WRX have the same rotors? I wanna get a set of the EBC Dimpled rotors and EBC pads.

Bry.

Yes, the rotors are the same front and rear.

You might consider doing the "H6" rear upgrade on this vehicle just like the WRX owners do. Check on compatibilty issues with your 04 model tho. Apparently the rear pads/brackets changed a bit for 04.

You might want to do a search on the EBC pads in this forum.

You know if their rotors can stand up to their pads, they might be pretty good . But nothin wrong with OEM, Mountain or DBA etc.etc.
