I was wondering if anyone here knows if our 2008 WRX is able to fit the brakes from the previous generation of WRX?

I'm close to buying a 6 pot Rotora Brake Kit from my local distributor, but the brackets are meant for the previous gen WRX.

Thanks!

Updates

I've found out our brakes are the same as the prev gens!

So, do the Brembos off the older models fit ours, cause this car could certainly use more stopping power.

big brake kits typically take longer to stop... they are just needed for heat dissipation on the track where stock stuff will fade instantly. its way easier to make your braking distance worse then better. wanna stop faster? get some stickier tires.
