Well I don't know of any car the stirs a caldron, but if you want to know which car(s) to get the pieces from, I'll tell you. For the rear pieces, you have only one choice, and that is a XT6 AWD, from that you need the backing plate, the hub (the piece that bolts to the axle) and the rotor, the rear caliper is the same as any rear disc EA82. Up front you have some choices for some of the parts, but some must come from a XT6 (either FWD or AWD), you need the lower suspension arm and the ball joint, you'll need the tie rod ends, and you'll need the front calipers. You can get the following parts from a XT6, a Legacy, or an Impreza, the front strut complete, the front rotors, the front backing plates, the front knuckle, and the axles. The Legacy axles may be too long, so I would stay with either the XT6 or the Impreza. Here is a link to my web sitye that shows my first conversion, it should help a little, http://corkysrocks.n...sion 4 to 5.htm .

Yea, I forgot about the tranny, if you can find a tranny out of a EA82 (Leone/Loyal) series turbo, that will work.

All the front half shafts are the same length on ej cars.

Thanks THAWA, I wasn't sure, I knew the Impreza ones would work, we test fitted them on a RX. They are in fact 4mm longer then the EA82 axles, but I don't think that is enough to make any difference.

sorry, im interested in this again. Is the reason you need xt6 calipers because of the parking brake being on the front brakes in the stock setup?
