Thanks for this write-up, Im doing this LCA swap on my 03 sedan this weekend, I assume everything is the same as with the wagons as far as procedure. Ive done the rest of my swap myself, ej207, all 4 hubs, brakes, driveshaft, 6 speed, rear diff, axles, etx... basically the works. This is the last part for my OEM Subaru parts to swap out. The only question I have is regarding the end links, and in reading, seems like I found my answer, but just want to confirm. Will I be able to use the existing 03 WRX sedan end links with JDM v7 LCAs? Ive found most of the parts to be like legos, even the unexpected ones, and not needing to replace things with other years' to fit properly. Maybe it's been luck, but everything has gone very smoothly so far, and hopefully will continue to do so... Living in Cali, I have had no issues with rust, sorry fellas, and my front hubs can be pulled from the ball joints by hand with some force... New member here as of today, so thanks for the advice and future help all... Will be posting proper pics and updating info soon. Just joined more or less to get some info before the weekend.
