Talking Help with rear crossmember!!!

I have a 95 impreza and i'm doing a rear end swap to a 03 wrx. now heres my question, can i just use the old x-member and just swap over the diff, links, sway,disc,brakes etc.... or do i have to use the 03 x-member with those parts?
The problem is that the way it bolt up is different from the new x-member.
Any pointers?

How are the two crossmembers different? The bolt patterns for the chassis should be the same. Depending on the differential you intend on using, you may run into some fitment issues with the differential support if you don't change over to the '03.

You can use the old style rear cross member everything bolts up, but I recommend if you have it using the new one. They new cross member will have location on it for the relocated exhaust hanger of the MY02 and up, allowing you to use MY02 and up exhausts without not using a hanger or getting it modified. Plus rear bushing kits are more available for the MY02 up. Either way the existing bushings in the newer crossmember will be in better shape.
