Its a 04 sti tranny using a aluminum driveshaft and 3.90 R160..Im confused do I need Sti axles,hubs and knuckles to make this work?
you can resuse your axles because they are female ended. the stubs that stick out of the tranny slide right into your axles and are held in by a pin. you got the easy way out. no need to replace seals or anything, just slide the pin in after the axle is in. just make sure that driveshaft fits, not sure which one you are using, probably custom.
