I can't say if the wrx/sti parts will fit, I'm guessing most won't as it's a different platform. However you do have some other options. 00-04 Legacy GT suspension parts will bolt on and give you a decent drop, I think H&R's springs are also a good/cheap option. After that you're looking at some kinda coilover setup.

Honestly, I'm not sure, I think sticking with the wagon will keep the rake of the car more consistent. From the little I've read, you can get cheap coil-overs, but they are, well, cheap. I would do some research on nasioc or sl-i.net, seems like they have some decent info on lowered BH's.
http://sl-i.net/FORU...p?f=13&t=23373 look about 3/4's down.
You might also look into upgrading the front and rear swaybars, they're decent size from the factory, but I think the Baja Turbo rear bar is bigger. Whiteline makes a bigger front/rear bar if you're looking to spend $.
How many miles?
Probably also couple some suspension maintenance while you're in there: bushings, etc.

Any of the 2000-2004 Legacy or legacy GT (basically non outback) will drop you 1.5-2 inches. You can use the front struts and springs of any 1990-1999 legacy or Impreza for the same but the rears are a different set-up than yours. The 2002+ impreza will have the same fronts but not necessarily the rears.
