Default 04' Fxt to 02' Wrx drivetrain swap help

I have a wrecked 04 fxt and an 02' wrx that had an engine fire. I'm going to try to put the full wiring harness and engine and transmission into the wrx. I had a few questions on the transmission side of the swap. The fxt is a 4eat and the wrx is a 5sp. I figure I need to swap the rear diff to match the 4eat from the fxt. Do I need the driveshaft, axles, spindles etc. from the fxt or are some parts compatible.

if ur leaving the 5spd alone then no need to swap , axles are different, driveshaft is shorter rear diff is geared different just swap harnesses & leave drive train alone imo

I putting the automatic in there, I had no way to test the 5sp and the cluctch was toast and flywheel will need to be resurfaced. I know the auto is good so I'll start there and get it up and running with the stock fxt ecu which is also matched to the auto. So I'm going to need to swap the axles, drive shaft, and diff if I understand correctly.
