Default The last big parts from the STi

A brisk November day in Maine. Nothing a few layers of thermal wear and cursing on the ground underneath of a rusty mess of a Japanese sports car can't fix!

I pulled the differential and rear suspension out of the STi. It was a huge pain because many of the threaded nuts for the subframe bolts broke off inside the frame tubes, meaning I could turn the bolts, but not loosen them. Some creativity, violence, and cutting was used to solve this problem.

Diff is not far from its new home..

Also separated the transmission from the bundle of front end items I have going on. Going to have to clean all of this stuff up before it goes back in. The STi 6sp transmission is heavy! Especially compared to the 5sp out of the RS. I can totally see why all of the serious time attack Subaru race cars opt for a built 5sp over the 6sp.
