I don't know that anyone has actually done it yet. At least not that I'm aware of. We've not done it yet here. You could put the two side by side and see what the difference in the height of the spring perch is, probably give you a rough idea.
There aren't any rubber group N mounts for the 08+ chassis Impreza's. They homologated solid metal top mounts in 08 on the n14+ cars Will run you about $1200 for the set.
I guess they kept destroying rubber mounts much too quickly. The rubber mounts on the 09+ wrx or STi are much firmer out of the box anyway. Not quite as big a concern as it was on previous gen cars.
