Default Searched, can't find it, GC suspension on a 2005 wagon

I searched, can't get an answer. Any locals have info on this?
I know Donnie had ver 5/6 Suspension on the Wagon somehow.
Seems like GC front struts are same as wagons.
Rears Could be different. I understand that you need to use the 02/03 tophat, on the 04/05.
Would the springs used be GC springs or WRX springs?

There are tons of threads about GC6 AGX'es on the front, WRX AGX'es on the rear. I got a basic idea what needs to be done if you are "assembling" a setup.

What about GC struts on the rear?
I know that tophats need to be changed becouse of the bolt pattern changed for 02/03.

1. Now in 2004/05 rear tophats got changed again(not bolt pattern this time). So in order to install GC rear suspension you need the 02/03 hats swapped into the 04/05, becouse GC strut will not bolt up to the tophat. Correct?

2. What about the springs and the spring perches? Can you use RS springs front and back or do you need to do some crazy combination?

I got a set of Prodrive Bilstien struts and Eibach Prokit setup left of my 2001 RS. I would be very happy if I could reuse them.

Thanks in advance.

SOrry, can't help you with that but if you're looking for a good wagon suspension I have the V7 JDM STI Wagon takeoffs I may be looking to get rid of if you are interested. 3k miles on them and haven't been installed since they were taken off the original car.

I bet you can reuse the struts but you'll need wagon springs and top hats to match.

The STi wagon springs are pretty nice. I installed a set on my roommate's '05 WRX wagon like a month ago. Dropped it just enough to notice on stock wheels but it'd look killer w/some 17's to fill the wheel wells.

Donnie had a 02 WRX. The 02 could share GC struts with group N tops.
The 04 WRX and 05 WRX have different strut setups, which is why AGXs are not out for it yet.

There are some coilovers available, but I wouldn't concentrate on the suspension yet as it is setup fairly well. The only thing I'd consider right now is maybe front and rear sways. Besides, you have to learn to NOT drive the wagon like your RS.
