Default New Subaru "Impreza Performance Springs"?

Sorry if this is old news, but I did a search and didn't find any specific info about these. I did see some people referring to STi springs (pinks?), but I don't think these are them. Go to this page and scroll to the bottom:

http://www.subaruparts.com/catalog/?section=171

Part number: SOA855Z1200

I talked to Auburn Subaru (1stsubaruparts.com) about them and he said they're in stock in the warehouses. They only list them for the sedan, but presumably they *could* be used on a wagon as well. The only specs he had were that they drop the front 1.4" and the rear 1.2". And he may have said something about them being made by Eibach, but I don't recall.

Anyone have any info? Are these designed to go on the factory struts, or are they more of an 'option' for those that want lower springs with the STi suspension kits? They actually seem to be priced decently for a Subaru part too, which is a nice change. Just a matter of what they're designed to work on/with.

there was a post about these springs last month. it was confirmed that they are made by eibach. the specs look very similar to the eibach pro kit springs. there was some speculation that the SPT springs were just relabelled pro kits. another member was going to do more research on this issue. I never heard anymore about his findings. I also posed the question whether they were designed to work with stock struts. No definite answer on that one either. However, it seems to be an accepeted fact that the Eibach pro kit springs are 'ok' with stock struts, so the SPT springs should be 'ok' too
