Question impreza L and interchangeable parts?

Hi all,

Just wondering if parts in the Impreza lineup are interchangeable?

Thinking of putting GC8 stuff on an Impreza L (for looks), and then maybe WRX suspension or something?

Help!

try searching and reading in the subaru conversions forum.

there are MANY parts that are compatible...
suspsension, engine swaps, body parts, wheels, and more.

you can pretty much make your "L" into an RS with ease (and money....)

do some searching and read up a bit.
then ask specific questions when you have them.

good luck

Yep. An Impreza is an Impreza. All mechanicals are interchangeable from MY93-MY01 (suspension, swaybars, etc.). All cosmetics are interchangeable from MY97-MY01 (hood, headlights, etc.). The obvious caveats apply like you can't stick 2.5 headers on a 1.8, etc. Also check for shapes...the RS phat foglight bumper skin won't fit over the L bumper beam, etc.

Ditto for components...older L models didn't come with a swaybar so there aren't any mounts. Also some older L models didn't come with threaded crossmembers so it's difficult to mount skidplates.

But what Jamie says is correct...just pretend your car is an RS and you're good to go.

My daughter's L looks real nice with my stock WRX wheels on it. I never used the stock wheels and I had just stored them in the barn.

Yep...the L does look yummy with WRX wheels.



Although I prefer the Prodrives.
