hmm... i am confused as to whether this would work for me then... I am getting a JDM 6 put in my wrx, but the stock rear R160 is being kept in place (we will swap out the ring and pinion to make the correct ratio). WOuld this sucker work for me? Or would I want a wrx-specific unit?

you would have to swap the flange on the diff. Thats what I did to use a usdm 6mt driveshaft with a jdm r180 (same bolt pattern as usdm wrx). I think I paid around $60 for it from a vendor here. Dealerships wanted ~$100.

If this is a direct bolt on for a USDM STi it will not bolt onto a 02-04 r160 or version 7/8 r180 without swapping flanges (although Ive heard the ver8 RA Spec C has the same prop shaft as usdm sti). I have no idea what flange is used on 05 or 06 wrx.

My previous post is correct and experienced first hand.

ahh unfortunately I won't be able to join in on this group buy.. I got a deal on an STi rear end and front end (r180, axles, hubs, etc) to accompany my JDM 6 speed that I just cannot refuse...

I hope in future that another group buy comes along for this... Hopefully then I'll have more funds available....

i just have a couple of questions before dropping the cash

i was reading the iwsti forum that people were having vibration problems because of harder bushings that they installed and i could narrow it down to the tranny crossmember bushings and the rear outrigger bushings--my question is does that apply to the tranny mount ?? also what about the shifter bushings??

The Vibration problems were associated with having only one of the following bushings installed:

related to the tranny mount bushing and the

tranny bushings
rear diff bushings

The individuals that complained about the vibrations had one or two of the above types of bushings (not counting the short shifter bushings which never were reported as the problem). When they either removed the bushings in place of the stock bushings or installed the other set of bushings, the vibration went away.

What we recommend is no bushings if you want minimized noise and vibration. If you can handle a little bit of noise and vibration, we are being told that you should do the tranny and rear diff bushings together. If you do just one type of bushing, you may experience a vibration that might make you and question this modification's performance value.

Word on www.iwsti.com is that this is their favorite modification because it indirectly increases power by 5%across the entire RPM range.

wait, so what you're saying is that we should run no bushings at all for the tranny and rear diff in order to avoid vibration? what if i have the rear diff bushings from whiteline? does that mean i would have to take it all off to avoid vibration? would it cause wear and tear to the rear subframe and stuff like that?

no what he is saying that if you want to minimize any vibration or noise increase you should stick with the stock setup because there is just enough slop/give in the stock bushings that it will cancel out most of the noise and vibration since you are going from a two piece design to a one piece design and eliminating a middle bushing that took out most of the vibration and noise in driveshaft

if you read through the 44 pages of this thread
http://www.iwsti.com/forums/showthre...998#post601998

in here you see the first groupbuy of this product a year ago--people were complaining about additional noise and vibration and originally everyone thought it was the new shaft but it turns out it was the aftermarket bushings that people were putting in their car and they concluded that to avoid this you should either run with no aftermarket bushings or like sojdm said above run with both the tranny bushing and rear diff bushings at the same time but with this setup you will still get addition noise and vibration just not as bad as if you had just one of the bushings in place

basically it really boils down to--after reading through all 44 pages--how much noise and vibration you are willing to put up with inside your car when you drive--you can have any set up of bushings in your car that you want but if you experience any additional noise or vibration it is caused by your bushings not the driveshaft
