Default 04-05 Sti rear suspension to 02 WRX

I want to confirm some info:
My early '02 WRX might have a bit bigger diameter rear sway bar than a '04 Sti? 20mm vs 19?
If the '05 rsb were to be desirable to me (it isn't as it's 20 as well, no?), would it mount right up?
How about the Sti endlinks? if I were to use a bracket such as the Poltec bracket (I know they don't sell it separately), would I be able to use Sti endlinks?
How about the lateral links and trailing arms? Does the Sti come with nothing but spherical bearings everywhere? Whould any/all fit, or maybe only the '04?
I realize that the links will not have the ears for the endlinks and would use bracket based endlinks
How about the front sway bar and endlinks? is it any beefier than the 02 WRX?
How about the aluminum a-arms? do they come with a spherical bearing bushing where they mount to chassis?
Also, can anybody confirm that the USDM sti complete struts only drop the wrx less than an inch all around? And is the ride very harsh because of the spring rates?
A lot of questions, I know, but I could really find only little info when I looked.

Thank you,
