Default 2009 wrx struts.. are there any difference between 5 dr and 4 dr?

Simple question, looking to buy wrx stock struts for my sedan

i think i found a set but they may be for the 5 dr hatchback

are they the same? or are they different? im assuming it shouldn't be a problem, since coilovers work for both the hatch and the sedan...

thanks!

Pretty sure they are the same, Front are struts, rear are shocks, correct?

I totally understand, nasioc kicks a55 like that. I know that the coilovers for the 08+ were exactly like my stock set up, so im sure they are all interchangeable! Are you upgrading the springs as well? And just wondering, how much are you getting the strut set up for? Im running lowering springs on stock 08 struts/shocks, need to upgrade eventually

yeah i bought them off a member here at nasioc

called the subaru parts department and they said 4dr and 5dr are the same... which is great news

i already bought lowering springs a year ago but never installed, i was afraid of my 08 struts/shocks being blown after installing them so ive been putting it off until now

at least, if i ever blow my 09 struts i can run the stocks as backup :P

Nice grab! I'm probably going to opt for adjustable struts/shocks when mine blow

They should be interchangeable. I put on a 09 WRX Struts 5 door (hatch)to my 08 2.5i 4 door (sedan) with no problems.
