EDIT: SEDAN GUYS READ THIS:
Quote:
Struts- the front strut bodies differ between sedan and wagon, but either will bolt up to the other. The difference is in the mounting flange and where the two strut holes are drilled. Running sedan struts on a wagon will cause you to give up ~ .5-.7 degrees of neg camber- this is fairly significant as the oe configuration only yeilds ~ -1.3 total- thus more than half is lost. The rear struts appear to be much closer in their design and the camber change is little to none- this isn't based on my personal observation, but by someone I trust. Interestingly I find curous that there is a great demand for wagon struts by sedan guys/gals as the opposite would be true- an additional .8 degrees on tap Strut tops are the same wagon to sedan within the same model year groupings.
EVERYTHING IS SOLD, MODS PLEASE LOCK THREAD!

They are valved firmer then stock and as so, the ride is better suited to the drop your tein s-techs provide. I actually thought they rode pretty well to be honest!

Sedan guys take a look at this:

I have a sedan, so is that .5-.7 neg camber bad?! I honestly don't completely understand what it means. Will the tires wear unevenly and quicker, or?!
