Default Will 06 WRX Front and Rear Calipers fit on my 05 WRX?

Is this a direct bolt on? If not what else needs done?

front golts right up, the rears require a new backing plate- the catch is the rear backing plates are pressed in- requiring new ones pressed in- a fair amount of labor- knuckle needs removed/reinstalled, new wheel bearings/seals, e-brake bits need removed/reinstalled, etc

you can save a lot of the labor costs by removing the knuckles and having the dealership press the backing plates in, you could save more $ if your comfortable swapping wheel bearings

Sounds like a pain. I might just go with the Rotora bbk for the front and rear.
