Default Are the brake pads on the 98 2.5RS the same as the 02 WRX?

I've been searching on the forum for this answer and looking up the part number but it's either I'm not a good searching star or that there is no answer!

So some that knows, please answer:

I don't think so..... 98's backing plate is different from 99-01 if I recall right.....

I use 02 wrx brake compenents on my 99 as the front calipers are identical.... only needed rotors/caliper braket for the upgrade....

if you can post a pic of the brake pad on your 98, i could confirm... I have spare 99 pads (could take a pic)....

Yes up till 12/02 for the WRX, then subaru changed the brake pad design.
