Putting in coilovers on a friends 2013 WRX wagon. I've seen plenty of write ups for 08+. I don't want to assume '11 has same torque specs as '13 just to play it safe.

Therefore the only way of finding them is through the factory service manual correct? (unless someone else has a way)

Yes, linking a FSM through this forum is against the rules, I know.

Thus, are my only options finding answers:
1. Through Subaru and paying the 35.99 I think for 3 days access. (Close enough if I'm wrong)
2. Making friends with someone at the stealership who has access?
3. Subaru Gods descend from heavens for answers?

My notes from when I was doing struts/springs on a '12 WRX hatch:
front struts:
19mm: front 129ftlb
brake line: 12mm 24 ftlb
top hat: 12mm 14 ftlb
top hat to strut: 12mm 40.6ftlb
piston: 14mm: 29ftlb

top hat 14mm: 24ftlb
17mm lower strut 89ftlb
tophat to strut: 18.4 ftlb
14mm swaybar: 33 ftlb

I forgot what they mean by now, so you'll have to decipher them yourself bud!

Why would you not assume they are the same since the car is the same?

Torque specs aren't critical so go with what you have. Unless you are Magilla Gorilla or are a complete mechanical maroon five member, just tighten as you see fit based on bolt size. The only suspension bolts to be somewhat careful of are the bolts on the tophat as if you clamp down on them, they can strip as they are made of pot metal so tighten them to spark plugish levels of tightness.
