Default tranny swap

So I have been reading the sticky on the transmission swap so here are my questions now:

I have a 2002 WRX and I have a 95 Impreza L transmission...

For the rear diff do i need to get one that matches the wrx 3.545 ratio or the impreza 4.111, also since my car already has the LSD do i need to get new axles or will they fit the new rear diff when i get it, and lastly the front axles i know will have to be changed for an STI 6MT swap but will i have to change them for a 4spd to 5spd swap also the threads confused me because it made it seem like i can use my drive shaft again but this is not true is it.

any other info you can give me will be great

Have you checked the manual? You're putting a '95 L tranny into a 2002 wrx?

OK,
There's something wrong with this picture, but I will ignore that for now.

You cannot convert a 1995 L transmission to a pull style clutch. So, you will need a new clutch, flywheel and pressure plate, along with throwout bearing to install this tranny.

Furthermore, you do need a 4.11 rear end. You need to get rid of your stock 3.54 rear end. If you get a 4.11 rear end from an auto tranny WRX you will be fine with respect to axles and you will maintain your LSD.

Now, to the bigger question here, why? Tell us the story, Share your thinking here. Is this an issue of money? What happened to your stock tranny?

Well that solves the rear diff problem. Nothing needs to happen there.

Bugeye brawler,
If you need a 4.11 pull style tranny that is a direct replacement for your tranny along with a good used clutch, PP and flywheel, drop me a line. I've got a couple of options that I can present to you. They are all short ratio JDM swaps.
