Default 05 wrx sedan sti swapped hubs, what suspension do I use?

Picked up my 6th wrx a few weeks ago.. 2005 wrx sedan 85k, sti swapped drivetrain, 6spd and all. Has black brembos from 06 and up sti's so I'm guessing swap was from an 06-07 but not 100% sure. It's on these rediculous coilovers that I'm looking to replace with springs and lowering coils. Anyone have any idea what setup I need. For sti or for wrx, I know they are different. Coillovers are "stance" and have no specs on them I can find.. but are pretty crusty and can't get them to adjust so wanna replace em.

Black brembos weren't on the 06 Sti nor the 07. Either measure the width of the flange or clevis on the strut. Or check the bolt pattern, pull the wheel off if you don't know how.

If it's 5x114 or ~1.125" clevis, you need Sti struts for 05-07.

That's correct, </= 07 doesn't constitute "newer" sti
