Default I just replaced my 1993 L Wagon with a 1996 L Wagon: parts?

Hey Folks,

My 1993 wagon had 178,000 miles and was running great....but got rear-ended in DC. Because it's so old we got it totaled. I just found its replacement - a 1996 L wagon with ~80k miles, and I have some questions:

Is it worth doing a buyback of the leftover car? All the was damaged was the rear end (hatch, bumper, maybe exhaust). Are any parts on the car worth holding it onto for: i.e. do people here need 1993 L parts, or might I need the parts for my new wagon? What parts are easy to pull and store that I might really find a use for? thermostats? sensors, etc?

Thanks for your help.

-Dan

PS : the old wagon was EJ22 FWD, the new one is EJ22 AWD.

I'm going to guess not worth your time/effort.

not worth it, unless it was like a twin turbo or a limited edition legacy with bentley parts on it. You can get the parts you need IF you wind up needing them cheap anough AND your yard won't look like sanford and son...

Thanks for the responses. I just don't want to get screwed on parts prices later on. Is there a good general purpose supplier of subie/EJ22 parts I should know about?

PS: How much more difficult, if at all, are alignments on the AWD models? I need to realign the rear because of some cupping in the tires and a slight pull to the left. Assuming I have a regular shop I trust, will they usually be good enough?

I think my dealership did an all wheel alignment for $99. That is twice as much as a regular alignment, but it is also twice as many wheels to do...

I don't understand... does a 2WD car only need a two-wheel alignment?
