The inverted design of the strut makes them prone to "sticking" and making small popping noises. Most will eventually succumb to this problem and if they are consistantly lubricated it can be minimized. This doesn't mean they don't work or perform as intended. Do a search in this forum and you'll get many threads on the issue as it's been covered over and over. The 04 STi struts fit the WRX because they have the same mounting position and design. 05+ STi struts do not as they changed the mounting design from that year forward.
