I have a set off a 2004 FXT. I'd need to send them to you but that's not a big deal.

doh i literally just click place order on rock auto...

i ended up doing some research and went with remand lgt front calipers and doing the outback rear brake upgrade with the larger rotor. all worked out to be about the same cost as buying wrx brakes.

fun fact, the 2015/16 wrx uses the same front brakes as a 2005 legacy gt.
and calipers can be had for 97 bucks each on rock auto, powder-coated....

No worries. This is the reason I have the FXT brakes for sale. I picked up all 4 calipers and rear rotors from a local junkyard for $150, new front rotors for $80, and pads from RockAuto for $30. Spray painted them with caliper paint myself, and the only issue I ran into was having to rebuild one of the rear calipers as the piston wasn't retracting properly.

It's a hell of a brake setup for the money. Do the rears while you're at it- the LGT rears use the same rotor as the 06-07 wrx 2 pot, so it's much larger diameter and it's vented.

Do you need parking brake adaptor to fit the lgt rear caliper and rotor?
I was just going to do the H6 thing, but vented rotor and matching rear caliper sounds better.

No, the only thing you'll have to do is hammer back your dust shield to fit the bigger rotor. Otherwise it's completely plug and play.
