Just picked one up and had cross referenced that the awd GC8 was the same, but think I saw a different p# for the fwd..

(cv axle going on fwd passenger side)

is there any critical difference? length? or can it still work, appreciate any feedback!

The fwd Impreza and legacy axles were beefier than AWD models. I can confirm the fwd legacy axles fit, haven't tried the impreza ones.

update on this, the fwd CV axle from GC8 impreza did in fit up, no problem. at least in my case

However, its possible this was in fact a GC8 awd axle.. kind of an unknown as seller just had it sitting around unused. so not making an claims for certain here.

They are physically larger, both the shaft and the cups, you'd definitely notice.. Over the years, I'm sure many a thrifty owner swapped in the AWD to replace busted FWD's. Either way, a good axle beats a broken axle any day!
