Default WRX Struts on SVX?

Could a SVX theoretically use struts/springs made for a WRX? Perhaps older models, and would they even work if they fit?

Correct on both accounts.

I was just curious, a friend recently got a '93 SVX which has a strut going out, and we were discussing replacements. Something like an STi strut set would be right up his alley, but i'm not familiar with the SVX suspension or aftermarket strut/spring sets.

Unhappy No joy here

WRX stuff won't interchange to the SVX, I've tried. Your friend has two options; stock replacements, or Koni inserts (w/stock springs or Ground Control coli-over set-up). Stock struts are relatively cheap via Internet dealers. He can expect to pay about $650 for the Koni inserts (which require gutting the stock struts) and another $400 for the Ground Control set-up which requires some welding.

Send your friend over to www.subaru-svx.net. Lots of pics of peoples swaps over their. A member recently designed some performance springs (non-coil-over) for the SVX. Slight lowering and slightly increased rates.
