It will bolt right on, but the rear may look a bit "saggy" due to the length differences.

You might look into other spring choices that gear towards a rake like Prodrive and RCE. For example, the Prodrive STI springs were tuned for the stock STI dampers, so you might look into that. The 05+ springs are a half inch drop from stock STI levels, the 04 version is a 1" drop.

Your other option is to look on TiC's website and invest in some saggy butt shims for the rear end. This will bump up the back end a quarter inch and get ride of the saggy look.

In reality, the sag is really only a visual reference. The car actually sits flat relative to the ground, but the way the fenders are shaped, the rear end looks sagged although it actually isn't.
