Default 05 sti suspension in bg, possible?

I know for a fact that 04 sti struts and springs fit with sti tophats, but what about 05 sti struts and springs?

and on the same topic, what about sti swaybars? Im sure the rear fits but the front probably doesnt, correct?


i searched but it seems that people have only installed 04 sti suspension, and that there is no real answer about 05+

the front sway bar will definetly not fit because its made to bolt on to a turbo crossmember. As far as the rear, it wont bolt on becuase the legacy's trunk is deeper but you could cut into the trunk some and make it fit

The STI rear swaybar is wider and uses different endlinks and lateral links. I hear they work on newer Foresters though.

As for the struts, in 05 the wheel bearings were upgraded and the front hub/knuckle changed.

so what are you saying, that 05+ struts and springs wont fit?

yeah i should have figured about the swaybar since the sti has a wider track than my legacy, i was just guessing earlier.

no. The part on the knuckle where the strut mounts is wider and the bolts are spaced farther apart.

this may help (or be repost) I cannot recall source or vouch for validity or if they apply to USDM (Assuming they are JDM figures)
