Si senor.
There is a difference. The best I can come up with is these numbers I found online, not sure of their accuracy but the 08 WRX was the same as the 08 2.5i, 09 WRX forward was made pretty much the same as STi.

Stock WRX ('08)----------151#F / 136#R
Stock WRX (’09+) --------217#F / 194#R

According to Subaru, 40% stiffer in 09 vs 08.

My next move is stiffer/bigger sway bars, because I'm not going to lower the car.

It's certainly less mushy I'll say. As far as your 10 NA, I'm willing to bet you still have the same spring rates as 08.
