You can use just about anything that will fit 93-07 Imprezas. Easiest to just look for RS stuff. Shoot over to RS25.com and you'll find more information on your aplication than here on NASIOC.

Stuff after 01, won't fit for the most part. You want to stick with GC and GF chassis parts. There are both STi and aftermarket lateral links and trailing arm set ups. About $800 on ebay for the aftermarket stuff.
Some later model stuff fits/some doesn't, sometimes it fits but won't give you the preformance you are looking for.

GC = GF, the differences are body panels and few minor things. (spring rates, ride height, strut rates, axel thickness, gear ratios, fender struts) WRX lat links fit, but they are longer so the track changes and you have to fix the geometry and roll the fenders for decent sized tires. They offer no benefit over stock GC/GF lat links. If you want to spherical joints and stronger links then get the GC aftermarket stuff that fits properly.
I recommend coilovers and top mounts specific to the GC/GF check out Hotbits.

Cusco is a good idea - I just installed GC specific Cusco coilovers on my brighton and they went in without a hitch and are nicely adjustable.

Coilovers made for WRX's will bolt up, but have different tabs for the brake lines and will probably have a different ride height on your GC.

As for lateral links, I am running Beatrush adjustable WRX links. At their shortest adjustment they are the exact same length as the stock GC links.
Keep in mind that whenever you adjust the lateral links your RSB mounting location will move as well..... I ran into this issue when I tried to bolt up my Perrin WRX bar. I ended up having to mount the sway bar/endlink to outside of one lateral link and the inside of another one to get it to fit correctly.

I was looking at a few setups, I will be going with the STi pillowball units. Less adjustible parts means less likely for parts to move over time, but that's just me.
