For WRX, i believe Straight bolt on with the exception of rear brakes. The backing plate on WRX is different. (It would be equivelant to doing a dog bone adapter to fit wrx rear brakes.) Also, i dont think there is any benifit in doing wrx fronts.

For WRX STi, the rear will need a r180 rear end swap aswell as the aforementioned brakes. (And a r180 rear end swap requires a matching gearbox, or RWD, unless you can locate a unicorn triple4 r180.) And GD STi from 05 onwards use 4.5" hubs. These have bigger bearings in the front. And also require wheels with 5x4.5" stud pattern. And they also require front struts as the front knuckles are different where they meet the strut. And they require thier own front shafts due to the tone wheel for the abs difference from 05 on.

Welcome to subaru swaps

Thanks Bram, I wouldnt be swapping for any mechanical upgrade.. More so to replace my rear passenger bearing (I believe) as its making some noise when I drive.

Well, if it is bearings, then may aswell replace just the bearings. It not that big of a job.
