    Back In Black - from 02 WRX to 05 WRX

    Hey guys just wanted to say hello - use to own a Silver 02 wrx - had to trade it in a few months ago for a Cargo VAN to expand my business - I missed the car so much i just picked up my new Black 05 WRX - what a difference - the stock suspension on the 05 feels so much better than what i remeber when i had picked up my 02 - I had to do several mods on my 02 suspension to make it feel this nice.

    I have heard of several changes on the 05 wrx UK edition (see link below) but I cannot find any articles on the 05 WRX US model. The dealer told me subaru has made several suspension related changes and i believe them because i can really feel the difference...anyone know more...

    Welcome!!

    I didn't think the suspension was significantly different. I know they changed mounts or something like that so aftermarket suspensions wouldn't work on both the 02 and 04+ but other than that I thought they were the same.

    I might be wrong though.

    Hey, hopefully you still have the black wrx since this was posted 1.5 years ago. Or maybe you have upgraded to an 06 black wrx!!!
