Default Will 05 sti tein flex coilovers fit on 04 sti shell

Hey all I've tried searching but couldn't find anything like this. I crashed my 05 sti front end damage and don't feel like paying for the 2 frame rails to be replaced. My question is will my 05 tein flex coilovers fit into an 04 shell I have all of my other suspension parts that I will be putting into it as well. I would think that it should be fine since I have all the other 05 parts to put in it but I'm not completely sure any feedback would be appreciated thanks.

04 STi has 5x100 hubs and 05+ STi have 5x114 hubs... this means suspension doesnt bolt to each other. if your 04 has 5x114 hubs then it would work

As long as you are using the knuckes both front and rear from the MY05 STi your suspension can be reused in the MY04 body.

Thanks guys that is exactly what I thought but was not positive. So all I need to do is use the 05 sti knuckles and it will all bolt up to the 04 sti shell right.

There were very minor shell changes between 03/04 and then again between 05/06. The front grill, dash and hubs were the major changes.
