Piece of cake!

Swap all of the drivetrain from the newer car... transmission and rear diff. You'll swap the whole rear hub assemblies for the brakes AND the parking brake cables (so don't cut those!) Struts are an hour job, but do those when you do the diff and brakes.

Edit: You swap the rear diff because you want to make sure that the transmission / diff are the same final drive ratio. You could verify what you have and verify the transmission's FD ratio and not bother with rear diff swapping.

Subarus are very swap friendly. Just about everything bolts straight up.

My current project is a '96 Impreza with an H6 engine, a WRX transmission case with RA gears and a Legacy 4.44 viscous limited slip rear end. The rear brakes are off of an early Legacy turbo and the front brakes are off of a WRX. So far, I've haven't even needed to swap a subframe.

for that mater. i put a 96 WRX engine trans and diff in my 88 GL wagon, and it was all bolt up, with some major wiring work. but thats a different story.
