i have seen the wagon springs on RSD and TiC but not on their actual site. i would like to go the Tokico route also but I was having difficulty finding them but now I know the reason. when I am looking for them should i be searching for 02-03 struts? i was on one site that said the Tokico were for 02-05 wrx but not 06-07 which i found strange. I really didn't want to cut apart my stock struts for the Koni and the Tokico seem to have more adjust-ability than the Koni. Is this true (7 turns but you have to start at 4 so 3 turns??? vs 2 turns)?

all I need for the Tokico is the spacers and new top hats right? and the spacers are on the rear struts only? and i salvage the old dust boot, bump stop, and coil seat from the stock set-up. did i get that right?

i think the Tokico have lifetime warranty not sure what the Koni's are at...
Either the Koni or Tokico D-Specs will do great for you. Don't worry about adjustability, they are both up to the task, with plenty of adjustment.

Look up some DIY on Koni installs. It's really not that hard or complicated at all.

Now as far as Tokico goes, all Tokico products are discontinued. Hitachi has bought them out and they are for the most part out of business. So don't expect help with any warranties. There are still some new stock available, but they are getting harder to find. They are still a great strut, no mater what.

The Tokico are 02-03 fitment. So if you are using 04-07 springs, you would need the 921 spacers to go between the rear struts and rear 04-07 top hats.
