Question 05 STi steering rack in 04 WRX

Will the 05 STi steering rack fit in an 04 WRX? I would think so, but I don't know if anything concerning that part of the chassis is any different between the STi and the WRX and/or 04 to 05 model years.

No it will not. The 05 STi rack has a different mounting setup compared to the 04 WRX. An 04 STi rack will work. I have an 04 STi rack in my 04 FXT and it is one of the best mods I've done. The difference between the FXT rack and the STi rack is much greater than the WRX and STI racks. You might be disappointed with the difference. The WRX is 16.5:1 and the STi is 15.2 :1 the FXT is a variable rack starting @ 19:1.

You'd probably be able to make it work if you change the engine crossmember out with an 05. Not 100% sure on that, though.
