Replacing Rear Shocks - 00 1.6 EJ161

Hi,

I need to replace the rear shocks on my 2000 impreza 1.6. I have found a set from a 2.0 turbo same year. Can anyone give me advise as to whether they will fit straight?? I might buy the front brakes, calipers etc again are they straight fit??

Thanks

Callipers can be upgraded to the 4 pots if thats your plan ?
you will need the discs and maybe bigger wheels to clear them.

Rear shocks definitely aren't a straight swap then?? Any advise as to were I could get a set?
