Have an '03 X, will '04 parts fit?

Sorry if this is redundant but...

So I really tried to search for a forum where this question was asked already, since I'm certain it has... I have an '03 X. All I want to know is will '04 parts fit? Things like brake components (mainly the rear hubs), suspension parts, not too concerned with interior stuff, really just wanting to know how modular the two years are. If answering this is just too tedious, dropping links/ assorted places where one could go and educate themselves would be a massive help. Thanks for your time!

Subaru, like many other manufactures now, offer their parts and accessories online through franchise dealers. Not all Dealers participate and many Dealers try to look like independent online parts retailers, but you can quickly compare part numbers via their parts fiches.


You can get Subaru Factory Service Manuals by downloading them from Subaru for a flat fee of about $35.00USD. Unlike, many manuals, the years appear to not be combined, as it seems for my model of Forester, but you do have 72 hours to download 03 and 04 Service manuals plus whatever else is available for that same flat fee. The manuals should allow you to see what has mechanically changed between the years.

@Issa_Wagon I see this is your first forum post, so welcome the forum from Oregon!

The Google custom forum search is pretty good. Take a look at my search results for: '03-'04 interchangeable parts Scroll down to the search results.

This website is also used by many forum members: opposedforces.com It's not an official Subaru website, but I've found it useful.
