Yeah! But the week before splitted the transmission, without pulling the axles but I removed the drive shaft. Although it seems that I can leave the drive shaft in, the gap is big enough to do whatever you need. It took me about 8 hours total from start to finish. Will see how much time I spend with pulling the engine method...

Splitting the transmission wasn't bad but working with the STi transmission is scary. It is way heavier than the WRX transmission.

I have one from a friend. The 5-speed is so much lighter than the 6-speed. The 6-speed is really hard to maneuver because is so heavy. I can barely move it haha

Went to rotate my tires today and found one of my studs is stripped, ugh. Needed the impact to get the nut all the way off. Are studs on the wrx difficult? I'm just going to put an OEM one back in there.

haha, nm looks like its straight forward... the first two threads I looked at said something like "do the wheel bearings while you're in there" and I was like wtf.
I should be able to just knock the old one out and pull the new one back in.

Mine weren't too bad at all. The only tough part was breaking the caliper bolts. If you go to an auto parts store you'll probably need to ask for 06wrx studs because they didn't have any newer model info

If it's on the back don't forget to leave the hand break off

Yeah, I need to take a look at how the spot weld cracks are progressing. Not sure if not being the original owner will impact it either.
