So, I put out a thread a long time ago, but I can't find it anymore?
It is my understanding that the 82-84 GL 4X4 Hatches are the same. An 85 will be different.
I'd bet any EA81 will fit.
82 Hatch, well it use to be......
01 Forester, still is...........

However - a TRUE 4WD axle is about 2mm thicker than a 2WD axle. Often when you buy a "4WD" axle, they turn out to actually be 2WD ones..... some of the rebuilders don't really care I guess....
And frankly, I don't think it matters - I've never seen or heard of anyone breaking the shaft of the axle - it's always the joints that break. I have 2WD axles in my lifted wagon right now with no ill effects.
And there only $55 from www.cvaxles.com - which MANY board members recommend as the best. I don't think I would trust anything but theirs, or a new one from the dealer.

reman's are sold at all respectable parts stores. also www.cvaxles.com
granted i won't buy from them anymore. because i got 2 bad shafts from them. everyonelse seems to get good axles from them except me. local lifetime warranties are the better bet anyways. no shipping involved. and i tend to screw up front axles. so it's more convienent to go to the parts store to return. then ship them across the us.
same with the front strut s are all interchangeable on ea81 4wd. and i believe all if not most of the front suspension.
i have one hatch steering knuckle. and hatch struts on my wagon. just because that's what i found at the time. and it's all interchangeable.
