Nope they are not the same at least in the UK car. Close, but no cigar.

They're not the same with the current Impreza either I don't believe...but with the improved structural rigidity, ( http://www.geocities.com/clintsc9/ImpSpecs/ImpP22.jpg ) it will feel like a totally different car.

Suspension specs can be seen here: http://www.geocities.com/clintsc9/ImpSpecs/ImpP28.jpg

All other info on the UK model can be seen at this link: http://www.geocities.com/clintsc9/Im...mpreza2001.htm

I think he was talking about the difference in the MY02 WRX sedan VS MY02 WRX wagon, not the MY01.

They are pretty much the same but I think the wagon is narrower than the sedan. I think it doesn't have the fender flares. The last link above is pretty good but I haven't read everything yet so I could be wrong.

Umm...the UK are calling the new WRX an '01...

Go read all the literature. It is the new WRX.

Well since they haven't released the American WRX specs yet, this is all just conjecture.

But overall, it would be safe to say... NO the suspension geometry/mounting points are going to be a little different in the WRX (New Impreza) then the current American RS, at least in the front.

Almost the same, yes, but enough difference to not work:

Quote: "Suspension geometry has been revised to further improve vehicle stability and handling. On the sedan the front track has been increased by 15mm on the WRX and by 20mm on the RX and GX models. This has been achieved by moving each strut 10mm toward the outside with the same kingpin angle on the previous model."

And goes on to say..."The rear suspension retains the same dual link strut configuration..."

So, it looks like the front will be different than the back.
