Default 2010 WRX suspension into 2013 WRX

I am wondering if anyone has experience / knows if the stock 2010 WRX suspension (front / rear) is a direct swap into a 2013 WRX.

Will there be a problem with the front structs due to the wider body on the 2013 wrx?

I search the forum and it is usually talking about swapping 2013 WRX stock suspension into the older cars. The forum threads also note that the 2013 and 2010 stock springs are basically the same, so not very worried about that.

Thanks!

Swapping a 2010 WRX suspension into a 2013 WRX should be mostly straightforward, but there are a few things to consider. The wider body on the 2013 might cause fitment issues with the front struts, so double check the clearance and mounting points. Since the springs are basically the same, you shouldn't have issues there.

Oh. So that means I can swap the springs between these two versions because they match. I will try. The springs on the 2010 WRX look old and rusty

Thanks for the check!

I believe so. There IS a thread on NAISOC that spoke to the different stock spring rates in different years of WRX - I would suggest to double check that thread.
