Default Are 06 wrx Struts the same as 03?

I got a pretty good deal on some newer struts with tein springs. But i just want to make sure if there is any difference in the struts from 03 to 06. Like are the hubs or anything different? Any help would be good. Thanks.

The struts themselves are different, but if you have the correct tophats for that year strut, you'll be fine. This is to say:

2002-2003 struts must be used with 2002-2003 tophats or a spacer if you use 2004-2007 tophats.

2004-2007 struts must be used with 2004-2007 tophats.

If the 2006 struts come assembled with 2006 tophats, you're good to go. The Impreza body is the same from 2002-2007.


EDIT: Spacers - http://www.turninconcepts.com/produc...roducts_id=234

But you don't need them in your case.
