Default wrx axles, sti hubs?

So working on my midi design. I have my ej22t at the machine shop getting checked, s20 heads came in, got my front spindles over the weekend.

Anyways....

I have a 5mt out of a 2001 Forester. I'm going to make an adapter out of the center diff to make it into a fwd. It's going to need a front lsd. So I'm trying to decide on axles and knuckles/hubs. My current plan is to use wrx female axles and sti 5x114.3 front hubs. I believe they are both 27 spline and the same diameter. This way I will have cheap replaceable axles (and easy to get quickly).

The car will only weigh <1500lbs and will probably be traction limited, so I'm not super worried about the tranny.

So does that combo sound feasible?
