Default Making WRX Rear Wheel Drive, PLZ HELP

Can I make my 2002 WRX rear wheel drive by just removing the front two CV axels and covering/protecting the axle stub? Does anything else have to be done?

There is a way to do it with the front diff. I can't remember the details offhand. I wouldn't do it for an extended period of time though since the rear diff wasn't designed for this and can fail eventually IIRC.

what you have to do is remove the front drive shafts and weld the center diff together. if you dont weld the center diff your car will not move. if you have any questions about it pm me and ill let you know
