Question Will RS suspension fit onto a MY93 Impreza?

I am looking to get an early-model Impreza as a project car. Will the RS suspension fit in a MY1993 Impreza L? Also, how difficult would it be to convert it from auto/FWD to manual/AWD?

sounds like flashboy wants to do the same thing as i do. Get a 93 impreza leave the outside as close to stock as possible. Drop a STI drivetrain in it. Laugh uncontrolably after burning people in your POS looking old subaru. Thats my dream anyway.

Expensive and time consumming. If you think it's worth it, go for it. I wouldn't do it. You'd probably be better off finding one with the manual/AWD. Manual's can be had for less that auto's anyway.

To answer the Suspension question, yes the RS suspension will fit directly into a MY93 impreza. Infact I have mine available fully assembled, pillow mounts and all

changing the drivetrain would be exremely expensive if nothing else. Difficulty? Depends on the availability of parts... but not easy, i'm sure
