Default GC/GF/GM rear hub assembly vs GD?

Does anyone know if the hub assembly from an '02-'04 WRX is any different from the '98-'01 2.5RS or Outback Sport? Would the hub off the former bolt up to the latter?

By hub assembly you mean hub and knuckle correct? Cause the hub doesnt bolt to anything except the wheel and thats definitely a fit.

AFAIK this is a bolt up operation and even the ABS sensor is the same.

The only thing thats a cause for question is the differences in the sedan and wagon rear suspensions on the newer models.

Yeah, the hub and knuckle. Basically the part that houses the bearing where the axle fits in.

By newer models, you mean 2004+, correct?

I mean 02+. There is something different about the rear setup on the wagons that requires the use of camber bolts with sedan suspensions. I dont know if its something different in the hub/knuckle or the suspension itself. I think the track ends up being a little different tho.

I see the same part numbers for the knuckles on all the rear disk models regardless oldskool/newage or sedan/wagon. The wagon and sedan struts are different on the newage models since the track width is different.
So yes, you should be able to interchange the hubs and knuckles.

Well, if the hubs are the same part, then the struts between the wagon and seden I would think have to be different to accomodate the different width. I bet the sedan struts have a wider angle between the strut body and the centerline of the two holes.
If a sedan wants severe rear camber, I bet they could go w/ some rear wagon struts.

It seems generally accepted that at least one of the holes is located differently, yes. There are a lot of threads discussing the interchangability of various sedan/wagon struts. I don't have hands-on experience there, I just know that the knuckles are the same
