I dont think a clear answer was ever given, so here is my question. Again...

2006-2007 STI swap into a GC8 chassis. Will the airbags work.. if you use all the wiring/ airbag system from the STi?
I understand the dash is much diffrent from the GC8 given the drivers high, seat, ect. Would it be safer to keep the GC8 dash or not?

I've been pondering this also.

I swapped a 04 WRX into my rs. I don't think the side airbag is feasible. What it comes down to is the drivers side and the pass side front bags.

I've disabled all of them on my car and have kept it that way for a while now but I'm tempted to get it up and going again. I plan to use the WRX system - the whole thing - sensors, computer, etc. I want to get the drivers and pass side air bags going with just the front sensors.

I realized after I swapped I forgot about the airbag sensors. I bought one off of ebay...see if I can at least turn off the fucking dash light

So I read thru most of this forum and still have questions, My airbag light is usually on but sometimes it goes off... It sounded like it is supposed to stay on until cleared by a dealership but mines going on and off by its self. The car is a 1999 2.5rs with a 2004 wrx swap. I would like to get the airbags working and get the light to stay out... Would a dealership even want to attempt to work on this and if so is it gonna cost a fortune to diagnose? Its been this way as long as I have owned the car... I didnt do the swap. Thanks for any help.

So I'm still not sure... swapping in a GD steering wheel into a GC is still safe? Or completely unsafe? I dislike the GC wheel, but not enough to sacrifice my safety for aesthetics on a DD.

There is so much info in this thread it's crazy! with your knowledge being as it is would you know where a thread might be about putting side airbags into a 02 rs and how to set up wrx seats so the side airbags work? I just bought my son a 02 rs2.5 and would like him wrapped in bags so mom can get off my a** about being safe. Thanks!
