Default STi CV axle question

Hey guys, I have a 2002 wrx and I just expeireenced a clunk sound from my front right wheel and some heavy vibrations on acceleration about 1 week ago. Now today I was driving and now my car makes this screeching sound as the car is in motion but when I stop the sound stops and idles great with no noises. I am 50% sure it may be the cv's and my question is if you guys may know if cv axles from a 2004 STi will work on a 02 wrx. Another user is selling a pair so I need some help. Thanks guys

I don't your that lucky, pretty sure all 6spds are male axles, while your 02 should be female.

Not unless your car is a hermaphrodite.

Haha thanks bro. Idk if they came with that option.
I went to a local shop that is popular for working on imports and they are charging me $150 to complete the job there going to get my axle rebuilt and $75 for labor. Thanks guys for your help

Its not hard to remove, but the damage you can cause removing the ball joint. Just buy a separator from Harbor Freight they're cheap and when it breaks take it back and get another one for free. I'd replace the axle nut as well and it wouldn't hurt to change the axle seal while your in there cause they can also be damaged if not careful.

Ok I will do that, the axle already came with the nut and ill buy a new seal thanks for the advice! Auto zone lends the seperator for $15 and when u return it they give the $15 back :-).
Thanks bro.

So I just change my lca bushings, my axle, sway bar end link, ball joint, outter tie rod and the seal and man was it a pain in my as$. Lol at least I got it done and saved $200 by not taking it to the shop. I tell you I save even more money by price matching from orielly to autozone and I get my rewards points haha gotta get them 5 point to get free $20.
