ea81 springs on ej knuckles?

I'm doing the five light swap on my hatch and wondering if it's bad to put the ea81t springs on legacy struts with the turbo tophat? I know most guys are running coilovers, but I have these springs.
Those springs won't fit those struts. Sell them. EA81T springs are a decent upgrade for a street-going Brat/Hatch. You shouldn't have any problems finding a buyer.

Yeah I've got the whole vented rotor knuckle kyb strut and turbo spring combo, what's something like that worth?
Hard to say with so many people tightening their belts. I know I just gave away a vented front knuckle setup, though.

So is there as factory spring that will fit the legacy strut and fit up in the ea81 strut tower? Or is cheap ebay coilovers my option till I can afford good springs?
I'm not totally sure yet. It looks like STI springs will fit with either a small spacer or by hitting the outside edge of the tower with a hammer. I'm not sure which route I want to go, though.

Do the sti springs lower the car at all? Be curiosity what you come up with.
I have no idea yet:-p
