Default Steering rack compatibilty

I have an 02 WRX with worn steering rack bushings. I have a complete 06 Sti steering rack including crossmember laying around. I would rather put in this rack than just replace bushings. What compatibility issues will I run into trying to install it?

I installed this Saturday morning, so I figured I should reply to my thread.

Everything bolted right up, I even had the STI universal joint and threw that on as well.

Used the factory service manual instructions. Took about 3 hours using a lift and air tools.

Tip: Reaching PS lines is a pain. Part of my process included unbolting the front control arm pivot on both sides. Once I had the cross member disconnected I let it hang on the semi-loose control arms giving me lots of room to remove the PS lines and reattach the new ones.

Might be a good Idea to use some shorty wrenches next time if you drop the cross member the alignment should be done after, but it is easy to measure the steering arms end to end and duplicate the distance to keep the alignment close enough to not need a new one. Anyway good job.
