Default '02 wagon + '04 STI struts and tanabe springs

I have an '02 wagon and just purchased used '04 STI struts, top hats, and tanabe springs. I know that I need camber plates. From what I have read, I am also guessing that I need camber bolts for the rear as well. Is that the case?
I just read a few posts and now I am a little concerned that this set up may be too stiff. Any thoughts?
Thanks for the input.

You only need camber bolts in the rear if you want to adjust the rear camber. Most folks want to add negative camber in front, and subtract it in the rear, to combat understeer.

"Too stiff" is subjective. Only you know what's too stiff for you. The STi/Tanabe combo should be a stiff daily driver - middle of the road stiffness-wise - much stiffer than stock, but not nearly as bad as most coilovers.
