Default Ver 2 Brake Sourcing

Ok, i'm sure this must have been discussed at some point but I can't seem to find it... I need to order brakes for my car and i'll probably be going the ebay route on this (yes I'm broke ). I need to know what North American cars have what I need? So, front and rear rotors and pads. I'll probably do lines too but that should be easier.

Break line kits for all 1993-2001 Imprezas will work, I chose the Goodridge product. Front and rear brake pads should be interchangeable with most North American GC8 Imprezas. Any way, it was covered comprehensively here:

If you're looking for a set of Goodridge lines. I bought a set without realizing my car already has SS lines. PM'd you.

I get that the front will work, but the rear has me concerned. I need rotors with a drum e-brake.

I saw that, I was just hoping get a cross drilled slotted rotor set. So I need to know compatibility. But if I strike out I will go that route. Thanks

Rear pads from a turbo legacy and rear rotors from a turbo legacy (15" RIM SIZE) will fit perfectly. Did this job this past fall. I purchased rear EBC rotors + pads from horsepowerfreaks.com Wasn't the cheapest but everything fit and is still holding up great today.

The rears will work with any other GC8 rear disc brake-setup. The only thing of concern in the turbo cars is the wider rotor, which uses an extended caliper bracket, but the shape and mounting of the pads alone is the same.

I've heard to stay well away from anything cross-drilled. That includes cross-drilled and slotted rotors, way less rotors surface for the pads to grip and more prone to failure. I've even heard slotted is unnecessary, since brake pads no longer contain asbestos and therefore no gasses need to vent from the pads through the slots. Slotting isn't a bad thing, it just won't likely be necessary for the majority of pads you'll be using. I myself am going with a set of DBA 4000 Slotted rotors.
