Default STI top mounts for 91 Legacy TUrbo?

I want to upgrade to KYB AGX's and whiteline control springs. I also at the same time would like to do STI strut tops. I have a 91 legacy turbo with the tapered rear springs. Is there an STI strut top made for this design? Or are the tops the same and just a different cap between spring and top? Or would I have to buy an STI top for an impreza or later legacy and switch to a non-tapered spring setup from a later legacy? Any ideas or source for these parts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Micum

All three!!!

An STI top is available for tapered
Impreza STI tops will fit, using a spring cap that will fit the normal rear springs

If your getting STI mounts why arent you looking at replacement springs? You could order the normal ones and get the normal spring plates to match

I did the conversion, I used whiteline springs with 93+ Impreza STI tops. They are so commone I was able to find them local and pick them up. If you want the STI tops for the tapered springs its a special order deal.

Talk to Legacy777 on bbs.legacycentral.org as he used the tapered springs.

Yes, you can get the rear tapered sti top mounts.

Tapered rear sti top mounts:

Right rear: ST2032044000
Left rear: ST2032044010


Just for posterities sake, here's the front ones:

Right & Left front: ST2031055000

Contact Adam @ Z1auto for the mounts, $45 each.

Thanks guys...I'd be totally lost without this and legacy central. So Ciper...You used impreza STI mounts...and whiteline springs...are the whiteline springs legacy specific? Or impreza? And if legacy, the tops of the springs fit fine in impreza top mounts?
thanks

So SOA was retarded. Only in the US did we get tapered springs on 4wd sedans and wagons, everywhere else got the standard rear springs on everything except fwd sedans, and that was only for the first two years.

The springs I used are meant for our cars, with non tapered rear springs. Check the FAQs in the suspension forum, I have a post about spring diameters and you can see many springs that are the same diameter (meaning the same seats).

I got the STI tops for about 200$ locally then bought the seats and rubber "washer" from subarparts.com

So it kinda seems to me that the best option will be to get legacy STI strut tops for non-tapered springs...and a set of whiteline control springs non-tapered for legacy. This way, my car will be in sync with the rest of the world, and I will have more spring options. So I think I will just need the STI legacy strut tops, and whiteline controls springs...or will I need to buy the seats for the non-tapered springs and the rubber washer thingy as well, (do they not come with sti tops?). Thanks guys...sorry I couldn't just figure all this out from searches of the archives...but it was kinda confusing...we need a storehouse for "definative" info...but thats always changing, right...
Thanks

can you just get the sti top mounts and put your seats ( not sure what they are called) on the new top mounts. the only reason for doing it is to get the harder feel or you need to replace yours really bad, right?

i was going to get some because i am putting on new struts and springs and the front ones have some cracks on them so i thougth i woudl just get these becuase i was told the oem ones are about the same price.

they list them for both impreza and legacy. from what you guys said it should not work if they are for an impreza.

Yes in the front, NO in the back. The rear parts are a SINGLE PART combo strut top and spring seat. The replacement are for a two part system.

If its for a 93+ Impreza they will work. If they are for an 02+ US Impreza the rears will not work.
