need trans, drive shaft, rear diff, rear hubs, axle shaft.

 

a very tricky part you need to find out is that some subaru's dont' actually have all the holes and bosses you need in the rear to mount the rear differential. it would require some minor fabricating, drilling and welding. but i don't know about this year and model so i can't tell you for sure whether those mounting points are avaible or not.

 

i don't know if it's auto or manual transmission. if it's an automatic you'd need the TCU as well.

I'd swap the whole rear main subframe. Then you have all the holes, brackets, etc for the rear diff and such. Heck then you could swap it all in as a single assembly... least thats what I did on my old GL wagon conversion.

 

Your milage may vary :)

 

How hard is it? It's a lot of work! This isnt a weekend repair; its a project.

It would be a heck of a lot easier if you hold out and got one that was awd, instead of diving into the headache of swapping.

 

Seriously.
