Because you swapped suspensions, and the suspension that is on the car is not what it came with, then the suspension warranty is no longer any good.

You are putting a suspension in a car that has an unknown number of miles on it. The normal warranty is for 3/36, and that cannot be verified anymore.

Yes your suspension warranty is gone.

However dont worry about it, the only thing that ever really goes wrong is STI rear struts knocking. (which you may or may not experience)
Its not that its unknown milage, its not OEM. OEM means the part that came on THAT MODEL car. Spec'd for that year car. Neither of which are the 04 STI struts on an 06 WRX.

But again, dont worry about it, nothing under there is likely to break.

People worry about warrantys too much. Nothing on a subaru is prone to breaking without modification or driver error.
