Default But can you answer this...

So guys I am finalizing my swap and one big question just came up that I have no idea how to address... So quick run threw I am swapping a 2002-2003 interior and full drivetrain into my 1995 Legacy Wagon.
The question is what do I do about the locks, do I remove the locks from the WRX and place them in the Legacy, including the doors and rear hacket, or do I swap out the key holes in the steering columns? Does anyone know how to swap out the steering column key holes? My conundrum is driving me crazy some help would be awesome

Thanks
Josh

I'm going to be using the old keys for the doors and trunk and the immobilizer key for the ignition.

I figure I will keep the Legacy locks on the doors and just use the key-less entry to open the doors (assuming I get it wired to work) and then the WRX ignition switch... I'll just keep the Legacy key just in case I can not get in

Thanks everyone

The MY02/03 WRX doesn't have immobilizer so there is no reason to use anything other than the stock legacy ignition. One key doors and ignition.

The ones in the doors? You could probably pull the door panel off and look and and see how it's done.
