I don't suppose anyone has done a install where they also changed the crossmember? Any info? Looking at doing an 06 STi rack into and 04 (also have the 06 crossmember). Do you need to hoist the engine when doing the crossmember - or how can you support it?
I am also getting conflicting info - one guy did the 06 rack into an 02 wagon without swapping crossmembers, but everything I read says you can't do that... but, he is a mechanic and said he did it successfully, just using some longer bolts. So what is the deal with the crossmember? Is everyone saying that you need it just because they are regurgitating what they read everywhere else, or does someone who has done it have the reason?
