The new reman axle looks to be an A1-Cardone. If you look closer to the axle on the car, you will see the drift pin. You may have to turn it a bit.
SubaruParts triple checked the computer with the VIN and kept getting the same part number, they called Subaru and said they "didn't like their answer" and asked for the transmission number. They will call Subaru on Monday.yeah, after reviewing, and looking here; http://opposedforces.com/parts/impreza/us_g11/type_19/suspension_and_axle/front_axle/
I think there's a chance you have the wrong axles.
Hopefully, someone can confirm, also, you might try calling your VIN number , in to the dealer AND give them the build date from the door plate, to confirm which style axle you need, the 'female' with the roll pin that goes over a stub axle, or the 'male' style that clicks into the diff.
