Question Ohlin Fixed Perch Strut Question

Does anyone know the part numbers for these struts for the 04 year. I ordered a set and the mounts do not line up. I have tried searching for the part number to double check but have come up empty handed. Here is what are typed on my boxes:
Impreza Front
SUS-5F00
CU0-S010L/R-0
GBD-E
Impreza Rear
CU0-S020L/R-SO
GDB-E

Where did you order them from? Contact the seller.

Is it the fronts that don't line up? If so you probably have 05+ STi units.

yeah, just as I said on the phone( 8:40 eastern time ) sorry my cell died at first,..yeah you got the wrong shocks. We always check and double check the part #'s. You may want to call your selling vendor tomorrow. I am very certain there are no more 04's in the country. We sold the last set AFTER you ordered yours. wE do have more coming on the next shipment, so let us know if you need help.

yes only the front are different.

Prob about 3 weeks to so before the next batch. Find out what your local guy is going to do for you and let us know if you need any assistance.

Agreed. Still sucks when it happens.

I believe we have a set in stock if we can help.

Man after some time on the phone this morning it seems as though all the 04 model year fixed perch struts are sold. And after speaking with Ohlin USA, nice people by the way, my local shop ordered the wrong parts! I guess there isn't much I can do but wait for my local shop to open and politely ask for some struts to use in the mean time seeing as I've broken my front factory sti struts.
YIKES!! Slightly frustrating!

Ok, Wombat North and I talked and we hugged it out.

Issues were with communication and UPS.

Issue will be resolved shortly.

So to update this thread...
Called Ohlin USA today and was told middle of March before these are available for the 04 STI. Luckily my local shop got me a set of brand new Cusco 01r's to play with. All I can say about these is, I'm glad I did not buy coilovers instead of the fixed perch. Extremely harsh daily ride and noise is up as well. Which, I guess is expected, just can't believe the fixed perch struts are so hard to come by.

04 STRUT #'s from my shipment

Info from green label on box
IMPREZA
FRONT
CUO-S010L/R-50
GDB
PVC

Would be nice if a vendor confirmed the numbers in this thread for all. Not much fun changing out springs etc to find that you have the wrong part. RCE if you please.

This is the exact same as what is on the 05 STi front strut green label EXCEPT the GDB line is GDB-E-

The GDB-E is for the 05

Of course. The 2005MY STis with the 5 x 114.3 mm P.C.D.s were called GDB Revision E (A through G with G being the current and last revision of the GD chassis).
