Thank you for writing in. The Forester was based on the Impreza platform, and they are going to share many of the same components. The CV axle from a 1997 Subaru Forester will fit a 1996 Subaru Impreza. It is always wise to check that the splines on both sides match the original part that is being replaces, and check to make sure they are the same length. Good luck!
