    JDM steering wheel

    Question if I wanted to replace the wheel on my 95 legacy with a JDM of some various year would I have an issue with the airbag connection?

    This was just brought up a few times recently and it would seem that as long as you stay model year '97 and below you should be fine. Meaning find a wheel from a '95-'97 Legacy.
    -'97 Legacy Outback - 5MT, DOHC EJ25D/EJ22T hybrid w/ VF8 turbo @ 11psi - 170 whp / 200 wtq (untuned)
    -'00 Impreza 2.5RS - 5MT, LSD, STI Ver 4 interior, I/H/E, spring/strut combo, still N/A

    You'll need an airbag from a car made before they changed to the low-power airbag in 98. 97 or earlier USDM Legacy and Impreza models probably fit this bill, and I'm sure there are JDM models out there as well.
