Default Will stock 04 STI springs work for WRX

Hey all, I'm looking to sell a set of stock 04 STI springs and this guy is asking if they will work for a 03 WRX. Will they? What else will they work on so I'll know if someone asks.

TIA,

Sheila

The fronts will fit, he'll need 04 rear topmounts to get the rear springs to fit because they taper at the top where 02-03 springs don't have a taper.

what he said! also, make sure you get the rubber rings that go between the spring and the strut top. the 03s won't fit on the 04 springs.

He should also consider upgrading his struts, the stockers weren't designed for springs that stiff.

Well, the first sale fell through, but now I have another 04 WRX. Will he still need the top hats as well because of the taper?

Nope, direct bolt on as far as I know. Anyone else confirm?
