If they are '02 USDM WRX then they have 2 pot slider calipers in the front and 1 pot calipers in the rear. And some correct me if Im wrong but the rear brakes should be the same and the front rotors are a little larger so youll need the rotor and bracket (for lack of a better word).

definitely correct. USDM '02 WRXs didn't get 4 piston fronts and 2 piston rears. caliper bracket designs changed a bit year to year, I don't remember the differences, but if you get the whole loaded caliper, you won't have to worry about whether your calipers will bolt to the WRX brackets.

True but red usually means they are from the 06-07 WRX, but I think the 22b had a red 4/2 pot brakes. :)
