07 forester 2.5xt to 02 wrx springs?
« on: April 13, 2015, 09:21:44 PM »
Looked online and couldnt find an answer, but if i have 02 wrx springs and rear tophats could i fit them onto a 07 fozzy. Then would it even be worth the swap?

We did 02 struts and hats in an 01 forester. Not the same but I think they'll work. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong

if they're from a WRX wagon then it's worth a try.  If they're from a sedan then it's definitely not worth it, as the rear will sag a lot.

Get the Wrx struts too the springs are shorter and will ruin the Forrester struts since they will always be almost completly bottomed out

I think the 02/03 WRX have different springs,   which required different top hats,  but the struts were the same  across the 02-07 range.    Research it because there was something wonky about the bugeye spring/strut/hat setup.

From what I remember though, most manufacturers stopped producing the 02/03 springs and just made everything 04-07 based since the struts were the same across the board, and otherwise newer setup was plug and play on the bugeyes

Rear tophats are different between the 02-03's versus the 04-07's.  i switched the tophats when i went from stock '02 wrx springs to the Tiens I got from blackparis for an '04.
