I'm not sure about the swaybars, but pretty unlikely. The 04 STi strut assembly should bolt right up. He'll just lose out on some negative camber up front.

Edit: This is assuming all USDM vehicles. I don't know what, if anything was different in Europe.

Both are USDM models. We are military stationed in Germany.
Can some aftermarket camber bolts fix that?

Bolts can certainly help, or camber plates. The loss is typically 0.7 degrees when putting a sedan suspension on a wagon. Getting back to factory spec shouldn't be a problem. If you're looking for -3 degrees because you autocross or track the car, it might be a little tougher.
