im pretty familure with the swap, im just wondering. if i can use xt6 rear brake calipers on my 4x ea81 hatch. i have backing plates, and discs from an ea82 turbo, but those calipers are shot.

is there a difference between rear xt6 calipers and ea82 rear calipers?

or will they interchange?

I assume, since you have to swap those parts for the 5 lug swap, that they are not the same and do not interchange.

I have a question to add to this thread! Are the XT6 FRONT calipers the same as those on a EA82(T) car?

no, they're more like legacy or impreza calipers with a front e-brake, which is why they're perfect for the 5 lug conversion. actual impreza or legacy calipers wouldn't have the e-brake in the front so you'd have more to modify. someone crossreferenced a bolt on rear caliper for the 4-lug subarus, it is a very recent thread if you search for the reference... i just swapped my xt6 rear brake stuff onto my wagon last weekend, hoping to get to breaking down the front end this sunday... good luck with yours
