Hi All,

I've been putting off installing my 4 pot calipers on my SG for some time as I wanted to replace the brake lines with braided at the same time.

My question though is should I be getting forester specific lines or WRX/STI ones? I understand the stock lines will fit but maybe wrx ones have a different length for a better fit?

Appreciate any help with this. :waves:

Eh, while we're at it, basically the same question but for a SF5 STi. I know the 4pot is exactly the same as WRXs up to MY04 had, but does it have Forester specific lines in there or just "generic" Impreza turbo ones?

I got the HEL braided lines fitted to an 04XT, in conjunction with 4/2 pot upgrade, I ordered the Forester specific ones, at the time stock ride height and they fit fine doesn't appear to have too much excess line to me anyway.

Thanks sneaky. I'd assume if it was lowered it wouldn't matter? Might order my lines today

I bought mine from Carmods Australia and i specifically asked the same question, they spoke with the HEL rep and they suggested the Forester spec i went with that recommendation and they fit fine, tbh WRX ones would fit as well I would think especially if you are lowered but you know what, assume you go with HEL it wouldn't hurt to contact them direct and ask, they will know.
