    There is only one kind of WRX actuator... They don't have front and rear. The normal procedure is to disassemble them, rob the springs out of them, and swap them into 3S actuators.

    I have offered the swap service in the past, but I'm having surgery tomorrow and wouldn't be able to do the conversion for probably 6 months. It is best to swap the springs on both front and rear turbos into the 9B housings. If you still need it done around Christmas, let me know. Cost is $25 plus return shipping. Thanks,
