Use a double box end wrench to hold the FW..

The front axles go on the stubs ONE WAY, of the roll pins dont want to go past about 1/4" you NEED to remove the axle from the stub and rotate it 180* and put it back, the hole is drilled slightly off center, trust me here...(does the 05 STi have male stubs or female reciver?)

Rear diff plug will likely require a breaker bar and a floor jack to pop it the first time.. did for both of

Support the front of the motor, you'll be pulling the dogbone and the trans, the engine will want to tip forward, watch that Rad... You'll also want to lift the front of the motor on install, will help getting the trans in...

Have someone on the crank bolt with a breaker and socket when tje trans goes it to get the splines lined up.. should slip right in whe its right...

Trans and motor have dowel pins holding them together, wedge in a puddy knife, then 2 screwdrivers, then another screwdriver and you'll pop it in no time...
