I'm just looking for a quick answer to this newb(ish) question:

Are the rear knuckles (Axle Housings, Spindles, whatever you refer to them as) from an '02 WRX and a '00 RS interchangeable?

I know that they look exactly the same, two lateral links, trainling link and the hub should be roughly the same.

I also know that most likely the ABS tone rings are completely different.

So will they swap out? I need a new wheel bearing in the rear and I want to have a spare rear knuckle in case that stupid lateral link bolt gets stuck. Unfortunately, tracking down a rear knuckle for disc brakes isn't so easy.

I'm not worried about maintaining the ABS tone ring as my ABS doesn't fuction at all anyways.

Any help/ insight is appreciated.

Just to add thebs only works for 2000+ and SOME 99s. Since the abs tone ring moved from the axle to the hub around year '99-2000
