i was wondering does 04 05 06 all have the same rear axle
no shop can answere that for me here in the bay

and i have spoken to couple of people and they told me that the 04 rear axle will not work for the 05 06 sti

as far as i know the 04 axle will work on the 05 or 06 but, the 05 and 06 will not work on the 04. this may sound strange i know, the 05 and 06's are 1/4" longer if im not mistaken.
wow thats crazy




anyone else with a good info

how can that be that 05 06 will not work for the 04.......... and the 04 will work on the 05 06 ?

maybe because you didnt read the last few words of my post. if i am not mistaken, the 05 and 06 axles are 1/4" longer than the 04. if you were to put those in the 04 rear hubs they could/will bind under certain conditions.

again "if i am not making a mistake"

i do know you can convert from 04 to 06 hubs and not have to replace the rear axles due to the lateral links length not being changed.

the 04 axles are smaller and lock into the diff differently than 05-06. 04 uses a roll pin that you have to punch out that holds the axle in and the 05-06 just snap in with the lock ring inside the diff. so, they will not work at all.
