Default Stuts/lowering spring fitment

Hey everyone, i have an 04 wrx. Just recently picked up a set of oem struts paired with tanabe gf210 springs. They came off an 02 or 03 wrx sedan. Just wondering if these will fit my car.? Should i use the 02-03 top hats or mines? Whats the deal.. Tnx

You use top hats that match the springs being used. You can re-use your rears, if needed. The fronts are all the same for 02-07

They (the 02-03 struts and springs) already come with the top hats; fronts and rears. Any advantage to running the 02-03 rear top hats over the 04 rears or vice versa?

No advantage using 04 rear tops. I would check the condition of the front top hats and replace them if they look worn out, they're 10 years old I would guess and probably shot.
