Default JDM GC8E4ED (MY98 STi v4) knuckle/hub on USDM MY00 RS

Does anyone know if the JDM MY98 v4 STi knuckle/hub will fit the USDM MY00 RS axle with or without the tone ring? Also is the wheel bearing the same? Thanks!

I don't know for sure, but given the interchangeability of all other Subaru mechanical parts I would give it a 99% chance that they will fit with no problems. From what I could find for part numbers for the wheel bearings they look like they are the same part.

Thank you. I've also just confirmed that both the bearing and the hub are the same, with the exception that MY98 hub is also fitted with a ABS ring whereas MY00's ABS ring is on the axle. The knuckle and the axle are different.

So the question now is if MY00 RS axle (with or without the ring) can fit into MY98 knuckle/hub against the seal properly. Still trying to figure this out.
