    I'm looking for a solid rear subframe assembly (spindles to subframe and lateral bars) from a GD impreza/wrx/sti to use as a template for my tube chassis project. Closer to free is ideal.

    I don't need calipers, differential or even usable bushings/wheel bearing. It's just being used for measurements for an unknown amount of time.

    Picture of my too crusty 99 subframe that was not usable

    Yes I have that. But then I am going to need help disposing of a non rolling shell.

    It's rusty and it's dusty but it could be worse. Passenger rear corner is missing from accident.
    Depending on how hard it is to swap I was thinking of moving the core support from the shell to the new bugeye turd because that one is a little mangled. What part of the front did you mean. It's basically all still okay some rust in the typical spots. All I really need from it is the front subframe for the race car. I'll make a post soon for all the parts I'm sitting on just being lazy ln taking pictures of stuff and making lists. Also garage is a mess still.

    Pretty much the front subframe in place of this (now) one piece garbage. 20210401_163848~2.jpg

    Hmm yeah I'm keeping the subframe to swap with the na subframe on the 97 impreza if you want that one. Don't need struts and knuckles as far as I know aside from a means to roll the shell out.

    I do also have 2 extra trailing arms already removed. I was going to press in bushings and realized I need more than just a press. So I just bought new arms lol

    Those trailing arms are in addition to the ones on the shell

    The template i was planning to work with is disintegrating and losing reference points.
