Carnac says, "Use the USRM and the search function"

you could prolly find a way to use the impreza calipers, but guess what, it won't give you a rear e-brake. so a search for "subarutex" and "Dr.RX" and you should find the info you seek. basicly search

Jeff,
I am not sure how close to Colorado Springs you are but there was a mid-80s 200sx in the yard east of 25 near B street (Fort Carson). Grab the rear calipers and be happy. You will need to use the piece from the subaru that bolts into the backing plate as the one on the Nissan is too fat. And as mentioned in the thread you looked up :) , you will also need to figure out a handle and routing of the cable. My new brakes might be done this weekend but the ebrake part is going to have to wait until I get a couple of more pieces.

Just cause i'm old:

The rear E-brake will be much less effective then the front ebrake, if you're doing it to "drift" then thats one thing, but from a practical standpoint, the front ebrake will actually stop the car, but the rear ebrake will be just enough to get the rear to kick out, but not stop the car in an emergency.

Rear E-Brake has been performed by using 240SX parts i believe. I think Tex did it, or maybe it was corky. Not sure if the USRM has anything in it about rear ebrake.

There seems to be alot more impreza's showing up in the junkyard here. Maybe I'll have to pull some parts and see what fits what.
