Default Similarited between a '05 2.5RS and '05 9-2x Aero

I found an inexpensive '05 2.5RS sedan with a blown engine that I'm thinking about buying for parts. How many parts are similar ?(other than the engine of course) with this car and a '05 Saab 9-2x Aero/'05 WRX? Are the manual transmissions the same? Axles/differentials/struts/brakes/etc.? Body is in rough shape, but the wheels and tires are good, not sure about the interior yet (I haven't actually seen the car yet, just want to do my homework to see if it's worth having a junker in the back yard!)

since you seem a little unsure as to how you'll actually fix the car, why don't you just find one that runs.

02-07 wrx's are pretty cheap these days.....

I'm not planning on fixing the car, just wanted it for parts when my running '05 9-2x Aero needs parts. I just don't know how many of the parts from a 2.5RS are the same as a '05 WRX/9-2x. Right off the bat I like the wheels and tires on the 2.5RS. After that I will just pull parts off as they brake on my 9-2x

Most if not all the mechanicals are similarited.
Very few if not zero of the aesthetics are similarited.

as they break.


Here's a way to figure it out. Go onto a parts site like subarugenuineparts.com and put in a wrx and then try the 2.5rs for major assemblies. If the part numbers are the same, they're the same. If not, they're not.

Come on!! That's a lot of work, can't someone just answer the question?

Sorry for all the typos. Not feeling the sharpest after Octoberfest last night. Figured somebody would know off the top of their head if most parts are interchangeable between these two cars.
