I believe the 02-04 are all the same. IDK if they are different but the 05+ have different mounts so the rest of the rack may be different.

Well the mounts on all 05+ are different from 02-04 so I don't think you can swap it right in. This includes the STI. Their mount was different for 05 from 04 also.

I don't recall the 05+ getting the STI steering rack but I'm not sure.

Is it just a tie rod that is bad, if so just replace it, the sterring rack is a nightmare to install.
