Default Ride height change?

I'm installing some 04 OEM WRX struts/spring/tophats on my 03 wagon.

Will I experience any change in ride height? There doesn't seem to be anything in the major stickies that I can find.

Thanks!

i'm not sure on ride height but it shouldn't change much. you'll lose negative camber up front if those struts are from a sedan.

why are you installing 7 year old struts?

Yeah I was aware of the camber issue up front, so I'll take care of that.

I should have said 04+ style. I believe they are 06 or even 07 low milage take offs. I needed a cheap replacement and they fit the bill.
