Default help* clutch question for my 02 2.5ts wagon

Blew my clutch, a friend of mine has a brand new clutch out of a 98 2.5rs I need to know if I can put it in my 02 2.5ts wagon... Maybe a 98 flywheel match...? Does the tranny spine match a 98..? Help.

I honestly don't think so, but I could be wrong.

I'd be surprised if powertrain components across chassis (GC to GD) are that interchangeable.

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm an idiot. They're the same.

The clutch itself is the same. However, you have two options with the flywheel unless the new clutch comes with one. You can either have your stocker resurfaced with a blanchard grinder or you can get a new flywheel to go with the clutch.

DO NOT PUT the new clutch on the used flywheel, ok

So the tranny spine is the same as my ts as the rs regardless of it being (mine) a 02 and the clutch being from a 98

When questions like this pop up, I go to www.RockAuto.com and look up the part. They have additional info that will show what year/models the part works on.
You can also verify by looking up the same part for each car and compare part numbers.

One of the biggest differences in Subaru clutches is whether it's a "push type" or "pull type" pressure plate.

Should I match 98 clutch with up to 01 flywheel?

The 98 new clutch will work if you get a new 2001 fly wheel or have the other one resurfaced.
