    Hi not too long ago i did a full swap from a 04sti to a 05 manual forester xt the main thing to remember is to transfer everything from the sti to your forester.

    Transmission and Driveline
    As far as doing a full swap if you go with a 05- 07 sti full swap the hubs and mounting for struts are different spacing therefore you cannot use your kyb struts agx because the spacing is wrong. the 04 sti is the only year that fits the forester spacing and 5x100. the advantages of going to...

    Transmission and Driveline
    I think the best way would be to get a donor 04 sti that way it would solve a lot of issues involving sourcing parts also you could retain your suspension and 5x100 wheels and switch to brembos and it has all the necessary parts as far as abs issues i used my 05 forester xt sensors with no...
