Hello all,

I have an opportunity to get a 1993 FWD Impreza 5 speed. Will my 1990 Legacy AWD 5 speed and rear diff, hubs, axles, arms, suspension, etc, driveshaft (length) bolt up to it? Do I need to change gas tank?

thanks, PK

everything should bolt up fine. Only questionable thing is driveshaft length. I'm not 100% sure about it.

 

Yes you will need to swap the gas tank as well......and you might as well just swap the whole rear subframe.

Thanks Josh. I was on LegacyCentral looking about (seriously good site), but wanted to confirm that it would BOLT UP, as in: the holes are already there in the Imp, so I am not welding it up. I dont mind cutting a driveshaft. Will the Legacy gas tank fit the Impreza? thanks in advance, PK

the holes should be there, as the impreza was based off the legacy. Really couldn't tell you about the gas tank though. You may want to check the owner's manual if you have them for gas tank capacities for the AWD models. If they're the same....they should fit.

 

If you cut the driveline, make sure to have it rebalanced.
