I have a 90 legacy donor car, can I use those knuckles and hubs and still use the xt6 calipers as they have the e brake? I have all the xt6 stuff with good rotors and calipers and pads, but I cannot find a wheel seal that will fit the knuckle and fit the axel from a 93 fwd 5spd.Thanks for your advise.

I was able to make loyale front calipers work on impreza spindles but you need to make sure the rotors are the same size and use the loyale caliper slide pins.

I can confirm this works. Non-ABS caliper brackets and the matching rotor work with the Loyale caliper. Honestly, the only difference between the calipers is the worm-drive piston for the E-brake. Even the brake pads are nearly identical with only a 0.20" difference in length between the EA82 and GC (Impreza) front pads.

Sweet, I was bummed about losing the e brake. I will now have to find some impreza knuckles and loyale calipers.

You can even use 89-96 Legacy spindles (with ABS just needs the bigger bracket since the hub was larger and to clear the ABS ring) as long as you get matching brackets and rotors. I only mentioned the impreza since you're much more likely to find non-ABS stuff on them than the Legacies.. Good luck!

I have 90 non abs legacy knuckles and the mounting hardware for the calipers are much further apart on the legacy knuckles. I used the legacy calipers and rotors, I would love to get an brake back though. I don't see how the gl/loyale calipers will work in place of these. Not sure houw you guys did this but pictures would be awsome if you can get some.

I think it is specific to non-ABS early (93-96?)Impreza caliper brackets, All I had to change was the slide pin and the Loyale front caliper went right on.
