Default Coilovers?

I have some Cusco Zero-2R on my WRX and I was wondering if anyone knew if I can exchange them onto the STI?

I'm not sure If I will do it but I like to have all options open

Thanks for any help

Just a guess, but no. The STI suspension is completely different. Inverted struts and all. I would not expect an WRX suspension parts to go on there withoug switching everything over to WRX parts.

Inverted struts fit in the same space as normal struts.

However, possibly there have again been rear suspension changes and some top hat changes.

In any event, the STi comes with suspension that is very well tuned. Unless you're pretty expert in setting up coil overs and adjutable suspension, you'll wind up with something a lot worse than the stock STi setup.

I added lowering springs to my WRX wagon and it was the worst mod ever!! I quickly changed back to stock and the handling improvement is definately noticable. Glenn is right dont mess with the setup unless you think you can tune the suspension better than Subaru.

Suspension setup is a personal preferance to the way each driver drives and what they excpect from the car. What one person finds ideal someone else may hate.
This may seem rude but I was just asking if anyone knew if the suspencion configs between the 02WRX and 04STI were the same. Not if people think I should make the mod or not. I know that there are people that have seen the STI close up and people in other contries where the car may be more available that could be looking at this site. Those are the ones I am asking?

for ref the Cusco zero2r and also inverted with height adjust, bound and re-bound, adjust which makes them more tuneable the the STOCK STI suspension.

And Like I said in the beginning I may like the stock suspenion but if I dont then I like to have my options open

Once again Thank you everyone for the technical info

IMHO I believe the suspension points are not going to change. I highly doubt the factory is going to make a change to the unibody construction which is the same between the WRX and the STI. So that would indicate to me that the stut top hat is the same.

As for the Hub I highly doubt from what we have seen from 6spd convertions that the hub is different. All the convertion has consisted of is different half shafts with the same hub. why would you change castings of an already existing platform?

Just my ...........02$
