Default wrx axles, sti hubs?

So working on my midi design. I have my ej22t at the machine shop getting checked, s20 heads came in, got my front spindles over the weekend.

Anyways....

I have a 5mt out of a 2001 Forester. I'm going to make an adapter out of the center diff to make it into a fwd. It's going to need a front lsd. So I'm trying to decide on axles and knuckles/hubs. My current plan is to use wrx female axles and sti 5x114.3 front hubs. I believe they are both 27 spline and the same diameter. This way I will have cheap replaceable axles (and easy to get quickly).

The car will only weigh <1500lbs and will probably be traction limited, so I'm not super worried about the tranny.

So does that combo sound feasible?

04 STI had axles with female inner ends and will connect to the 5mt. And they will also fit in the 05 STI 5x114 hubs.

you are good on the 5x114 spindle and bearings to wrx outer cv

not sure about the trans side of the swap

if you need abs to work (not sure what kind of car your building), check out the lic motorsports tone ring adapters

Thanks for the help

Been trying to decide whether to attempt to weld my own or buy one. Where did yours break?

at the welds. if you use the stock splined parts, they are hardened steel. they have to be heated up to weld, and they do not leave much room to weld.

if i were to do it again, being towed twice (even with AAA), is not worth saving the cost of the billet part.

I believe they are the same. Saw a thread of someone using 08+ assembled hubs on 05-07.
