Default dumb question. drive shaft from 98rs works with wrx tranny/rear diff

Right?
Just wondering cuz mine is hitting the body of the car. Even after we moved it down, It still hits the body of the car.
Was wondering if there is any problem there.
should i pick up a wrx drive shaft?

What part of it is hitting the car? The propshaft is probably not your problem, something is sitting at the wrong height.

Can't be. The bolts would never line up.

hitting the body, you can see where it is hitting.
It just freaks me out a bit. I can feel the driveshaft spinning when I'm in 1st and 2nd...doesn't seem right

It is the correct way. The carrier bracket has a lip, the lip has to face downward, otherwise it wouldn't mount flush to the body. I can't believe it's still hitting. How sure are you keith that it's not something else?

pretty damn sure dude. hahaha next time I come out there I'll let you drive it.
I can feel the tranny moving man, weird. I'm wondering if I should get some Group N engine mounts/tranny mounts. Wondering if my old ass L mounts are just soft as hell?

That could be part of it...


The braket was on the right way... well as close as you can get with washers and long bolts.

any other ideas about this one? Which drive shaft DOES NOT fit the L? (wrx tranny/rear diff is installed)
I'm thinking of just buying another wrx (05 wrx) drive shaft as I can get it pretty cheap.

Thing hits pretty hard against the body unless I REALLY slip the crap out of the clutch in first. Doesn't hit so hard in second unless i drop the clutch.
?

I don't know what to tell you. In a 99 Impreza L, I've ran an 02 WRX tranny and 02 WRX rear diff with both an 02 WRX driveshaft, as well as a 99 L driveshaft at some point or another. All parts from 5 speeds. Didn't have any problems with either the WRX or L driveshaft. Have used both stock L mounts and STI mounts at some point or another too. There has to be something wrong besides the driveshaft.

How did you bolt the rear diff up? On the WRX, it mounts a little differently. You've got the oem rubber spacers in the propshaft carrier right? I think I remember those being a little longer on one side than the other, that could be a problem if they were flipped(not the whole carrier, just the rubber washers).
