New to USMB!!! Eager to Learn and Build
I am looking at a 1988 Subaru GL Sedan 4wd, Hi-Lo, 5speed... All I want is the running gear, I would assume the running gear is the same as a Wagon, but can someone tell me if that is in fact true? I am planning on building a tube framed buggy based on the Stalker plans that I bought probably 10 years ago, similar to Sweet82's and Tubesoob... I just wanted to be sure I wasn't creating more work for myself by getting different running gear.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

If by running gear you mean drivetrain, then yes. It's the same.

I'm not positive on suspension. But engine, diff, and tranny should be the same.
