well, this is what an 05+ rear looks like, just wondering if the 04 looks the same.

05 outback coilover

They look very *similar* however the devil's in the details. IIRC the BL/BP's have a different bolt pattern in the tophats. There may be length, bolt size, and spacer width differences that may make them look alike but ultimately very incompatible.

well I remember phatsuby or someone measuring some of the strut and mounting points between the two generations. I'm pretty sure the spacing of the tophats are different, but I'm not sure about the rest. I can do the measuring for the BE as I have a B4 suspension waiting to go into the car, but the other end you'll have to do

I think even the front top hats have a different bolt pattern and from what I've heard it's pretty much completely not compatible.
