Default 2004 WRX Rear CV Axles

I'm swapping my r160 for a used diff with less kms in better shape then my own and I want to get new axles. All I can find though is an axle for the rear right and nothing for the rear left, while fronts are widely available for both left and right...

are the right and left axles identical? Can i buy 2 rights and put one in the left?

Further, some rear axles are listed as "no ABS ring," but my understanding is that ABS exists only in the front for my year of car (2004 wrx, man. 05/03).

Basically:
1. Do Rear Left axles exist?
1a. If not, do I just buy 2 rights?
2. Do rear axles even have ABS rings?

So I've learned that the Left and Right are not the same length, and have a different OEM PN, however, i cannot yet determine if there is an ABS ring on the axle.

looking at OEM pictures of these axles does show an ABS ring, nor do I believe there are ABS sensors in the back wheels of 02-07 wrxs...

so i looked it up... does look like there's abs in the back, but there is an ABS ring on the knuckle itself as opposed to the axle...maybe?

I don't think there's a difference between left and right rear axles.

apparently one of the two is 10mm longer than the other? They have two PNs, I can't imaging why the axle assembly would have 2 PNs if they were the same part...

okay, so i checked the FSM, which i should have done in the first place.

Here's what I've found:


Also looking at the FSM, I find that there is no ABS Tone Wheel (abs ring) on the axle itself, and that the ABS ring in the rear is on the knuckle.



I should be safe buying axles that say "no abs ring" then... lesson learned lol, I should check the FSM before i check nasioc for stuff; solved my own problem xD
