1999 Classic rear box exchange

Hi, recently bought a 1999 classic wagon with a stainless backbox, looking to change back to standard, can I ask advice on which standard backbox will fit as there are numerous on e-bay (2004 wrx/1998 Saloon etc) any advice would be appreciated.

any classic back box will fit, anything for 2001 onwards will fit but the rear hanger will want either cutting off or turning thru 180 degrees,
This is assuming you have a exhaust system that is broken/split in the same place as standard.

Re: 1999 Classic rear box exchange

my advice would be something on the lines of prodrive as you will get a perfect fit a nice 2.5 inch system and not at all loud .Be very carefull with ebay bargains as the hangers are often in the wrong place as many people have discovered after purchase .Scoobysport is also another quality fit and british made to high quality and can be purchased direct from them with a lifetime guarantee.Ideally you want three hangers some offered on ebay do not meet this criteiria and are of poor quality and fit .
