BE/BH Legacy STI Springs *Problems* Top Hat
Posted 07 August 2006 - 05:31 PM
Very disappointing, as these are supposed to be drop in replacements for the BE/BH chassis. The rears fit fine, but the stock front spring has the same diameter top and bottom, the STI spring is tapered, so the top has a slightly smaller diameter and won't sit properly in the stock top hat.
If anyone knows where I can get these parts asap it would be greatly appreciated. The tech where I had them installed suggested I try Subaru directly, as perhaps an STI Impreza top hat would work, or they had something similar that would. Does anyone know the differences in the front suspension of the Impreza/WRX/Legacy of the 2000-2004 era?
Thanks, any help is welcome.

STI front top hats Subaru part number: 20323FA000
You need 2 of those.
BTW, any spring kit meant for European and Japanese Legacies, such as, H&Rs need these top hats too.
