I apologize for the posting in advance as I know this information is here somewhere but I am having trouble finding it. I have 04 WRX wagon springs and am looking for WRX struts but my question is about the top hats. What year top hats will work on my forester or can I swap my top hats onto WRX struts? any info would be greatly appreciated

Don't go any newer than '05 on the top hats. I made this mistake in reverse. I have '06 springs. Originally I had '04 Group N top hats, but the top coil on the '06 spring is different

I forget exactly which is which, but the top coil is either the same diameter as the rest of the spring or smaller. But it's also only the rear springs. The fronts are all the same. This is why I ditched my Group Ns and found a set of '06 STI mounts.

Hmmm ok thanks for the info - it sounds like I'm best off just trying to get 04 WRX struts/top hats as well to avoid any mismatch from the springs, top hats and struts correct?
