Hi all, just looked through the diys and couldn’t find my answer, so I was told that to use my rear Brembos without dog bones I should get rear hubs from a WRX dating 01 to 07 now I’m being told only sti ones will suit which I’m also told opens up a lot of other stuff I’d need to change, could some kind soul clarify what hubs I should try and get, mines an 04 XT.
Cheers
S

01-07 GDA WRX backing plates / hubs / knuckles will accept 01-07 Brembo calipers. But the rotors need to be the special brembo conversion rotors with the 170mm handbrake drum and with 5x100 or dual PCD bolt pattern. Normally its 190mm handbrake on STi/brembo variants and later GDB models also had 5 x 4.5" PCD bolt pattern hubs. (Also in the USA, their GD WRXs had different brakes and different backing plates, so if you look up info from USA sources, there can be conflicting info because of thier local market differnces.)

01-07 GDB STI hubs / knuckles / backing plates will obviously also take 01-07 brembo calipers, with standard STi/brembo fitment rotors. But to fit these require alot of additional mods to fit. Basically doing the R180 rear end swap. So diff / driveshafts / 5 x 4.5" wheels (if later model GDB parts are used) and gearbox / tailshaft if you cannot find a matching 4.44 R180, (which is more rare ratio).
