Default 03 Vs 04 Suspension differences

What are the primary differences between the 03 and the 04's Seems like the new ones have 8+ inches clearance while the "old" i.e. 2003 ones have 7.3 inches of ground clearance.

Is this extra inch from springs or are the arms different? Any way to get the newer suspension on my 03?

Thanks

Bakes

I don't see mutch differance between them other than the control arms and shocks and springs, but I could be wrong. The 04's suspention is so mutch better than all of the other subarus, in my mind. It is extreamly well ballanced. And it has 8.4" of clearance. I don't think that there is too mutch differance, but it would be getting a hold of them for a price that would make it worth while.

Default '04 really corners on a rail...

The biggest surprise I got from my Turbo wuz how well it cornered, especially at speed. I think it's the AWD. Whe coming off the line, and then cornering, it just hugs the corner like it had claws...
