^what he said, roughly an inch lower than the WRX takeoffsYou must have 04 STi fronts, 04-07 STi rears fit. I'd say they're 1" lower than WRX stuff, but yes, stiffer and better performance. The inverted design of the STi struts is quite a bit better than WRX stuff.
That's a bit subjective, I've ridden in fully caged cars that bounce you out of your seat and I still find it tolerable but it really comes down to what springs you're gonna run with the struts you choose. STIs are a bit harsher but if you're going to the snow a lot, the ground clearance you're gonna lose running full STI takeoffs might make driving through snow a bit more inconvenient but it's up to you.Aha, so would you guys recommend WRX Struts or Sti struts if I would be taking my car to the local ski hill, would it be unenjoyably rough on the way up?
yup just like they were meant to be there. only thing that is a little annoying is the brake line bracket that is attached to the OEM strut. basically a little metal tab that is tacked onto the strut that holds the brake line in place. attack one side of the tab with a grinder, jigsaw, or even some metal shears to get the brake line free from the strut. this prevents you having to disconnect the brake line and get fluid everywhere and require bleeding the lines again.Timbaru that looks great. No custom fabrication or anything like that? It fits right up as if it were built for it?
