If you want STI suspension 2004 STI will be the only thing that will work on an '02 wrx post this in the suspension thread you'll get a better response

+1 for coilovers though

umm - suspension needs depend on what you want to use the car for...

if its a daily - then coilovers are a ridiculous idea...

I would honestly recommend tokico d-spec struts or kyb agxs with a good set of springs - a better place for this thread would be the suspension forum... On top of that, I highly suggest you do a search and a LOT of reading...
