Default 04+ Pink Wagon Springs on 03 Wagon

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on putting 04+ Pink wagon springs into my MY03 TS wagon and I want to confirm the necessary parts to make the switch.
Needed parts are:
04+ Pink Wagon Springs
04+ Wagon Tophats F/R

I have seen some threads that say that 04+ rear struts are needed as well, while others do not mention it. Anyone? BIGSKYWRX?

Thanks!
-Mark

Buy some Scooby921 spacers from turninconcepts.com too. You'll need them to make the 04+ tophats fit on your REAR 02/03 struts.

Other than that everything will fit perfect. You may want to think about struts too, even if they're just some kyb gr2 replacements. Those springs will likely overpower your older TS struts.

Front top mounts are not necessary

+1 the spacers are what you will need to make the rear tops work, and you don't need the fronts
lemme know what you think, though I may hold out for the potential RCE wagon springs

RCE wagon springs!

BTW, why is the consensus that the front Group Ns are unnecessary?

the top design for the rears changed in 'o4 but have not chaged for the front to date, so new front tops are'nt nessisary
now if you wanted to upgrade to the group n's thats up to you
with pinks on stock struts i'm not sure you'd notice a difference

I'm going step by step here. Once I get the springs, I will be getting new struts. I just need to figure out cost/performance value over time.
I am slowly turning my street car into what will become a track car. Am I just better off waiting and getting coilovers? And if so, any suggestions? I've been reading all of Unabombers sticky's, but everytime I get set to do something, I find a fault in my logic (see overpowering of struts). Any feedback would be appreciated.
thanks

you're at the same place I'm at
do you buy springs now that will work well with your stock struts and fall short once you get better struts
get the good springs now, let them blow your struts, and then replace them
wait seemingly forever and do both at once, or go to coilovers

I think what I may do is go with the springs that work with stock strut [stp pinks] and when the time comes to upgrade struts [the time being when i can afford them] buy some better springs as well and sell the pinks
I'm not sure I'm willing to put up with the harshness of coilovers for the 6 or so auto-x events I do a year
