Subsandwich Posted June 11, 2018 Share Posted June 11, 2018 So I was reading through the 6MT swap threads and had a few questions about the rear diff options. I'm most interested in recipe B. My understanding is that the newer transmissions use a 3.54 rear diff, hence my choices are using the 02-05 wrx r160s, in which case I could keep my stock rear axles, or going with the spec B R180, which means I would need spec B axles. So the questions: 1) Would any rear from any wrx from 02-05 work? I was looking on ebay and very few people list specifics about the rear diff. 2) What about the 06-07 STI rear diffs? Since they're 3.54 I would presume they could work? Would the issue then be finding appropriate rear axles/drive shaft? - I saw a partial answer later in the master swap thread but didn't quite understand it 3) Anybody have the hookup with a vendor that could streamline used parts for a 6MT swap? I tried the link on the master swap thread and the site for 6MT swap kits was dead. Thanks to any who could give some guidance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
