Post STi ver. 5 struts red or pink?

I am trying to find struts for mt tein springs. I was thinking KYB/AGX but i dont really need the adjustability and all thats really left is the ver.5's as far as i know of but ive seen pink ones and red ones. What are the differences?

There are plenty of posts on the differences on the different suspensions. Try a search and I'm sure you will find more info than you can possibly digest.

Jaxx has a very good point-- if it ain't adjustable it's NOT STi no matter what shade of red or pink you perceive it to be. It's a regular inverted damper that first appeared on the STi version 4, and they are really cheap from Troncalli Subaru.

There are non-adjustable STi struts as well. In fact, they come in different flavors (well, valving that is). There is a pic of the non-adjustables on TRi's website.

the FHI Inverted standard stuts are standard equipment on the STi V5 and V6 (that they were the same on the V4 was news to me but ill take your work for it). The adjustable STi are factory options

any way back to Imprezz25rs question..
tha AGX are probblay a better match..
the optmial setup is to have struts that have a reboud and dampen rate that is complamentry to the spring rate.. that said the v5 struts are non adjustable so if the the tein springs are too hard (or too soft)the V5 struts may not match well (although they could) with the AGX you can adjust(rebound or dampening which is it?) them to fit your desired setup
