Default 6 speed swap axle question

Im have a few questions, hopefully someone can chime in and help me figure it out.

I have a 2002 2.5rs.

It has a built 2.0L motor in it, and until now, had the old rs transmission and driveline.

Im swapping in a 06 STi trans and driveline and have a few questions - most threads are about installing the STi driveline into a wrx, so there are a few differences.

Driveline:
2004 STi Front & Rear hubs / bearings / knuckles
2006 STi transmission, driveshaft, front and rear axles, R180 rear diff

Question - the 04 hubs look to have a space for an extra ring that can be seen on my 2.5rs axles (pointed at in the picture) and the hub looks like it has space for this - just wanted to make sure the 06 STi axle fits in the 04 STi hub




Question #2 - I have the push style RS transmission/clutch in the car and the STi trans is a pull style. The clutch doesn't look compatible, because the slave is backwards, and the release bearing moves differently - just wanted to make sure there is no way to make this work, and I have to get a STi slave cylinder, clutch and flywheel.


Any help would be great, thanks!

The 06 sti axle tone ring will be in the wrong place for your 04 sti knuckles. You need a male wrx or sti axle ( recommend late model 04 sti ) pull type slave is needed wrx or sti, same same. And either a wrx or sti pull clutch.

Thanks for the reply.
Is that for all 4 of the axles? or just the front 2?

The rear will have to use r180 axles or make hybrid axles. Best way is just to use all r180 parts in the rear, that way if you break something you don't have to get or make hybrid axles again.

I have the 2006 STi axles for the R180, I don't know if they will work with the rear 2004 STi hubs (if all 4 of the axle tone rings are in the wrong spot, or just the front axles)

All r180 axles are interchangeable. The tone rings are just steal tooth rings, the sensor has a magnet in it the "sees" the teeth go by, that's how it know what wheel is spinning faster or slower.
