A llittle clarification is in order I think. Are the sti rotors the same diameter as the tribeca's? If so I would like to replace the tribeca's with some 2 piece rotors from DBA. I'm not sure how much lighter they will be, but every little bit helps. It sounds like I could just replace the rotors and keep the stock calipers.

No, the STI rotors are 13" vs the 12.3" on the tribeca, looks like the rear brakes are the same size, but you will need to make sure the parking brake drum is the same size, something tells me it isn't.

So the sti calipers are needed to do the swap as they must be offset a little more to compensate for the larger diameter. I knew it couldn't be that easy.

It never is, lol. I think you would have more to gain by swapping to a lighter wheel. Maybe the STI wheels, they look fantastic on the tribeca, then you would be all set for the brake swap when you are ready since the offset will be correct for the larger Brembo calipers.

I have some guys looking for some sti wheels. I imagine that the sti calipers are lighter being aluminum, but there is a lot more fluid to compress and I wonder if the stock master cyl. would be right for the task.

The master cylinder bore diameter is probably the same, since the WRX is also the same as the STI MC in most model years. If you start to notice a trend here, Subaru does use a lot of the same parts across many models.

I checked mine and it's a 15/16 which is the same bore diameter as the 08 up wrx and sti. The 06 to 07 wrx has an 1" master which would be a nice upgrade in feel and pedal travel. The 02 to 05 wrx used a 1 1/16 as well as the 04 to 07 sti.

Steering Dampener - how do you like that on the Tribeca? If I understand correctly, it stiffens up the steering response just a bit?

The steering damper is one of my best upgrades. The steering feels more direct and responsive.
