If that's the case, would I still need rear diff from old impreza? Doesn't make sense, should the jdm all match up?
Their axles in their six speed with their rear diff and everything else.
Only difference would be my hubs, which are wrx 5*100. I also have 4/2 pot brakes.
As long as the axles fit into my hubs I would basically be doing a complete swap, right?
If its a v8 trans, you can use your current axles provided you buy axle stubs for the front and you either swap your bugeye r160 with an older 3.90 r160 or just swap your ring and pinion in your rear diff with a 3.90 ring/pinion. Get new axle seals while your at it.
Use an automatic wrx driveshaft or use the STi driveshaft.
