If I go with the Legacy hub, will i need to use Legacy Tie Rod ends? Or will the XT6 ones still do?

And also, are Legacy CV joints the same length as EA82 CV's? Anyone know for sure? The guys on Legacy Central say Legacy L & Legacy Turbo CV's are the same... but FWD Legacy CV's are beefier. Just not positive if the spline count and lengths are the same.

Splines and length are the same. Or close enough to.

Impreza axles are something like 3mm longer than EA axles, but that is all taken up in the CV joints with no problems, i can't imagine legacy's being much different.

Legacy tie rod ends might work, would be worth a shot. I just used xt6 ones since I had them around...

i'll look at that tie rod interchange whenever i get my legacy. unless someone beats me to it.
today i'm changing the rear brakes over to the XT6 parts, and stripping the front suspension.. if i get a chance i'll then start on the engine. :burnout:
