Looks good!! I see you swapped top hats, was there a reason for this? Forester struts will bolt right into 02-07 Imprezas.

i didn't swap top hats. i had brand new kyb gr2 forester struts with impreza springs on them already on the car, so i just swapped the springs only. and i've still got my stock impreza tophats on there. i got the forester springs for free because all 4 struts were bent haha. they were from a forester my shop ran in a tough trucks competition and it caught major air haha :grin:

 

that pile with the stuts and top hats is all scrap

Ahh good deal then. I'm sure the old Forester struts were not happy running Impreza springs! Looks great now. I love how mine rides with them.

It looks really good, I like seeing it from the lot to now, looks a ton better than stock. Did you change the color between off the lot blue to a darker blue?? Keep on modifying!!
