 Axles will swap. you WILL need to replace the pedal cage too. It is not designed , or reinforced for a clutch. You cannot use the automatic box. Also, you will need to look at the crossmember. I believe that is different too. It's far harder than you think to switch to a manual tranny.

 

  Oh...how much are ya asking?  :)

Man  33000 miles in 2.5 years!  That's a crap load of miles! Do you have another car?  I hate to see these vintage Subys used as daily drivers. Please take care of it, so few left in pristine condition and high mileage is harder on cars this old.
