other than the obvious things like the transmission, driveshaft and rear end what other things would have to be changed to make a 2wd into a 4wd?

thanks steve

What car are you doing this on? Is it manual or auto? Are you wanting to swap 2wd auto to 4wd auto? 2wd manual to 4wd manual? 2wd auto to 4wd manual?

Before anyone can give you much help, you have to help us.

What car are you doing this in?

And since you want an auto to auto are they both 3ATs or are you trying to swap in a 4EAT?

I would have to say that given naive way in which you approached the qustion, and then didn't understand the request for clarification that you are in WAY over your head for a swap of this magnitude.

*Making* a 4WD from a 2WD involves a lot more than most people realize, and more changes than the reply's you get here will indicate. It's not just getting the 4WD in place - that's relatively easy. It's knowing ALL the parts that will make it a TRUE 4WD as Subaru designed them to be - sway bars, struts, springs, alignment settings, exhaust, gauge clusters, interior trim, etc, etc. There's a laundry list of stuff if you want to do it right.
