If you mean struts and springs then

04-07 WRX yes

04 STI yes

05+ STI no

In all cases using sedan suspension on any Impreza wagon including your OBS will result in reduced amounts of negative camber and will tend to make the rear sit low.

do not do this. i am fixing this mistake right now. make sure you get wagon springs. my camber was all over the place and the rear sat a good 2-3" lower than the front. make sure you get wagon springs. this was on an 05 obs with 04 sti springs.
