Can confirm that 08-14 STI rear axles work just fine in the rear of a narrobody 08-10 WRX with an R180 installed.

IAG installed my R180 (along with 6sp) into my 2010 WRX. I gave them 2x 08-14 rear STI axles to use.

Car drives totally normal. Yeah they are longer, but not by much and it doesn't seem to affect anything.

Default 09 wrx to sti gauge cluster swap

anyone know if its possible to swap the gauge cluster too?

= going from 09 wrx to 09 sti gauge cluster




I am in the process of having full 6 speed swap installed on my 09 WRX and would do the STI gauge cluster as well if its compatible

yes, i swapped them. i think i put a DIY up on wrxforums. same username over there. selling the car (https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho....php?t=2810135) and the cluster still works as new. just have to reprogram and get mileage adjusted accordingly.

Well that is good news. I have been looking at a 6mt swap for my 2010. Thanks for the info.

This thread along with monkis info has been very helpful.

6MT looks like the sentinel from the matrix next to that 5

Awesome write up! I have a 2010 Wrx narrowbody in the middle of 6 speed swap with a 2007 v9 trans and r180 rear end.Will 2007 front knuckles work on my 2010 Wrx so I can have 5x114? will 2010 sti 5x114 strut bolt right in?I understand that i need 2010 sti 5x114 rear knuckles as suspension is completely different in rear from 07-(08-14)

I am also in the middle of a transmission swap into my 2012 wrx. I recently picked up a 2016 sti tranny, 2009 sti driveshaft, 2009 r180 rear diff (for the pinion flange). My mechanic is saying I need an 02-03 wrx r160 rear diff so that I could use my wrx axles. Now what I am getting from this thread is that 08+ sti axles should work with the r180 and my wrx hubs?. Is this correct or should I find an r160 cause it is literally the last thing I need.

Thanks

The r180 and 08+ STI axles will work just fine with your hubs. Iím running an 04 r180 with 11 STI axles with out issue. Straight plug and play.

Are all r180's the same? I just bought 2015 STI trans and it comes with matching r180. Just want to make sure I get the correct rear axles. Mine is a widebody (13) that's why I asked if "Snowman" was able to figure out the problem

Default 6 Speed Swap: 2011 STI 6MT with Spec B Long Gears into a 2011 WRX

Spline count at the diff has been the same. Itís just a matter of getting the right axle setup for the model. The great thing with the gr is that the STI axles are plug and play and you donít need to Frankenstein a WRX axle with an STI one.

Talked with my mechanic who has done a 6spd swap in several wrx. He said that "Sti axles are too long and have a different diameter and spline count, so they will not work with your hubs." Another option that definitely works is sti driveshaft>r180 pinion flange>bugeye r160>wrx axles, (Which is what he is recommending). But still not sure who to believe for the r180>sti axles>wrx hubs cause of all the mixed results.

This is 100% incorrect. Probably someone who had no idea about the different chassis. Sounds like GD info.

I specifically answered this with photos and details nearly 5 years ago. It is linked in the 1st post.

Yes I did read through it. So how would I handle this? Pick up sti axles and have him install it even though he said it wouldn't work? Could you just confirm with me and the rest of the internet that this will work with a 2012 wrx hatch: 2016 6spd>09 sti driveshaft>09 r180>08+ sti axles>wrx hubs. Like everything will fit and final drive will be correct?

The gear ratios are the same for your trans and the RD your running, so yeah it should all work as stated above.

*** Not that I've done this but based on all the ready I've done, I'm confident it'll work.

CONFIRMED it works and its pretty awesome. The 6spd feels so much nicer. So the 2008+ sti axles do in fact work with my wrx hubs.
