Default 04 STi leveling switch for 02-03 JDM HID's?

I can't find a specific answer to my question. I just bought some black chrome STi HID headlights and they didn't come with the leveling switch or the ballasts. I'm placing an order with Lightwerkz for their ballasts/harness. I'm wondering if the JDM leveling switch is the same as the leveling switch in the 04STi's. I keep reading that the proper switch is supposed to have a 6pin connector on the back but if I recall the 04STi's is 8 pin. Can anyone confirm this for me? If I need a specific leveling switch I'm going to really have to keep a sharp eye out for one. Any help is appreciated thanks

There are 8 pins, but two are just plastic filers so only 6 connect to anything.

I used a usdm 04/05 switch with my jdm sti HID headlights. I built my own harness to connect the switch to the headlights.

Ok great so it should work. From what I've read it seems like everyone has to build their own harness for the switch. I'm not sure if the Lightwerkz harness has anything already wired for the switch but I'll shoot them an email and ask. Thank you!

There's a company that offers a fully built P&P harness for the 04/05 STi leveling motors.

Can't remember their name for the life of me, I'll do some research and report back.

IIRC the harness was 100-125.


EDIT -

Contact CircleT on here, he can build one for you if you're looking to go down that route. OEM quality.

If you're going the route of making the harness yourself, the wiring diagram can be found here: http://www.i-club.com/forums/how-tos...velers-249415/
