    Hey everyone, hope all is well.

    I'm buying a 2 pot rear brake setup for my R160 equipped '99 RA V Ltd.
    They include the hubs from a Version 8 WRX, rotors and calipers.
    Are these 2 pots the same calipers as the ones used on R180 equipped cars?
    I'd like to rebuild the calipers, before fitting them to my car.
    Will any 2 pot caliper rebuild kit work?
    What size rotors do I need?
    Pads?

    THANKS!

    Putting new-age hubs on a 'GC8' classic type car will throw the rear camber out so you wil need to rectify with camber bolts or some such normally.......

    In general terms all of the rear "subaru" branded 2pots are the same regardless of Type-R, 22B, new-age WRX, etc.....

    Bummer.
    Who makes the camber bolts I'd need?
    I thought this was all bolt in, the seller said so, too.:(

    Whiteline would be the most obvious, pretty cheap.......

    There are a pair of 2 pots for sale with adaptor brackets, but I'm worried about passing inspection without a modification cert...What rotors would I run if I went this route?

    Without the camber bolts the newage hubs would add positive camber, or negative?
