Forester rear disc brake conversion

Recommended Posts

MY 98 auto forester with drum brakes needed rear wheel bearings. The donor car is MY 99 with rear disc brakes.

I know I def need e brake cable, but the donor is so rusty I am not sure i can pull everything I need off the donor.

Do the rear brake calibers, hubs and rotors are the same from legacy/outback fit forester?

And any other suggestion?

Thanks a lot!

You can swap the backing plate, but you will have to get the hub out of the bearing to get anything apart.
