Have a Nice Day? Help I dont know what to do!

2005 awp wrx sedan

so my friend borrowed car got it towed when the company picked it up they bent something underneath . i went ripping around a corner after getting it out of tow yard and front wheel locked up went underneath the car and i hit a curb going sideways clipping both drivers side wheels at probably 60 mph it was all bent up.

I bought a identical part car that had no engine and tranni. for parts.

Now my freind who has a shop , doesnt know Subarus but does mechanic work took on the project.

I told him to just drop the rear end on both cars and swap em and he did not instead he took each part that was bet and swapped them.

at first when he thought he was done the passenger side wheel looked like it was sitting out further, after a week of driving it he figured out that he forgot a clip in part of the knuckle or something so he fixed it .

Now when Im driving It sounds like a belt rubbing on a wheel or something and there is little to no power when my foot is off the clutch and only gas and trying to accelerate .

I need to know what the possible issues could be caould it be the tranni? the clutch? I have no clue what to look at first.

What Samurai Jack said!

With every thing that might have happened to your car, you need someone competent and knowledgeable about Subaru to look at it and do it.
It would just be a waste of time to try and have people over the internet try to throw all the possibilities out at you.
