I can't find this in the search field;

I can get 2 front CV axles from a MT Legacy 1 2.0 AWD from 1994
Do they fit a AT 2.0 AWD Legacy II from 1997 ?

It's a 600 dollar car with a CV joint rattle right front.

--
Are non-turbo CV axles swappable from MT to AT and backwards?

That is great, then I'll buy the MT axles from a parts car which drove rattle free!
Thanks, best regards
Onno from the Netherlands!

Between the first and second generation legacy there is a lot of parts interchange. The parts may not be identical (FWD legacys got thicker front axles from the factory, but in the last 20+ years, most likely owners have changed them out for AWD axles) but they do swap for each other.
