Default Spring question

I have looked around and couldnt find an exact answer to my questions.
I just bought (not paying attention) some Tein S-tech Springs for for my 2002 WRX (Sedan). What I diddnt pay attention to is that they are for a 2006 Wagon (04-07 Wagon Springs). I have tried to see if I can still use them and how it will effect the car since the wagon setup is longer and so forth. I will be using my stock suspension with the S Tech springs. If anyone knows what the deal is with these please chime in and help me out. All I can dig up is the 04-07 Sedan setup which are different than the Wagon. (Reference: http://www.tein.com/price/subaru.html)

From what I have found the Tein Wagon Springs for 04-07 are the same as the Sedan springs for that year PN : SKS60-AUB00.

So I "should" only need 04-07 rear tophats and it "should" bolt up.

But will the height be different on my 02 these are the specs for the 04-07 setup.

Teins Specs for the 04-07 springs:
Sedan F:2.2 R:1.7
Wagon F:1.6 R:1.5

If I remember correctly the wagon rear springs are a little taller because they have more weight on them than the sedans do. Not sure on the year difference but I thought 02-07 were interchangeable but I think one of you Fairbanks guys had trouble with it earlier? Cossey might know more seeing how he ended up getting the springs.
