What models will fit 04 XT Forester

Recommended Posts

Hey, im new to this forum and Subaru's in general.

Iv purchased a xt forester and im looking to swap out the brakes with wrx ones, afew mates have told me its possible and quite easy.

I see wrx brakes on gumtree and ebay all the time but have no idea if they will fit my forester.

 

My question is what models will fit my forester?

 

Cheers

You have 5x100 lug spacing, same as an 04 STi and Baja and probably quite a few other models. You just need to find out what year the WRX is and look up the lug spacing and make sure it is 5x100. Now, something to think about is that your XT has pretty good brakes already, very similar to WRX brakes. The real upgrade is to STi brakes, just beware you will need to be using 17 inch or larger wheels to clear the STi brakes.

The good news is that the XT already has 17s that are ready to clear big brakes.  The rest is Legos.

The 04 xt came with 16" wheels, but they do clear 4 pots.
