    Well the diameter of the strut is the same as WRX (smaller than STI) and yes, both strut and spring are longer. More travel but the size of my tires rub on the fender liner if I take a DIP at high speed.

    Your ride is turning in to quite a hodgepodge of Subaru bits.

    sti driveshaft fitment

Also re-asemble shifter assembly, rubber boots and check to ensure all gears engage (including reverse lock).

    Rear diff. Piece of cake, nothing to report.

    Driveshaft....I should have checked fitment beforehand. When it was time to mate it up, the so called STI driveshaft I had was about 2.5 inches too long. Nothing lined up. Being here in Long Beach, I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by tons of hot rod shops & fabricators. I was able to drive over to the driveshaft shop, provide all of the necessary dimensions he asked for, he chopped & balanced the driveshaft .

    After instaling the driveshaft, I was finally able to mate it up....it fit perfectly. Re-assemble center supports, covers, etc.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead... I thought when swapping 06 sti tranny into 06 wrx the sti driveshaft is supposed to be compatible along with an automatic driveshaft from an impreza?? Just curious because I'm getting ready to do the swap on my 06 wrx and the tranny o bought is coming with an sti driveshaft

    Sti driveshaft is only compatible if you use the correct sti rear diff.

    If you want to use an 02-05 WRX rear diff, then that's when you use the automatic driveshaft

    I hate to direct anyone away from CLUBWRX.... But NASIOC has a huge transmission swap thread which describes all of the combos possible.

    You know that you have to get the correct final drive in the transmission and rear diff, right?

    Some center diffs were 1.1:1 which meant a 3.54 diff was needed for a 3.9 transmission.

    Then the 06,07 wrxs had a 3.7fd, which means the rear diff can't be used with the STi transmission at all.

    My last post had said 02-05wrx diff for the auto shaft. I believe your 06 rear axles can fit in the 02-05wrx diff. So you should look into getting an 02-05 diff. I'm only 99% on all of my info. You need to check with someone that has done your exact swap. I did the full drivetrain in mine

    Yes your correct. I currently have 04 wrx rear diff, 05 wrx auto driveshaft, clutch fork, seals, and 06 tranny. I still need to find tranny mounts and a slave cylinder from an 06+ sti which has been very difficult to find.

    The 07+ six speed has better gear ratios than 04-06. And if you're swapping for durability, I would swap in the r180 too. The r160 isn't exactly a strong diff.
