    Looks great, did you have to do any thing special to fit those D specs struts? Because I have been looking for new struts for the 04+ WRX and no one has them yet.

    Thanks Ian

    Not really. Some people have issues with clunking when you use v7 struts on MY04+. The trick is too hit the top nut very gently with an impact wrench while the car is on the ground. This will properly seat the strut. Absolutely no clunking >> Click Here <<

    One more thing, did you have to buy springs for the 02-03 WRX or does the springs for the 04+ work on those struts.I heard that you have to use springs for the 02-03 when you fit the struts due to the slight difference in design

    Thanks again Ian

    Spoke to Perrin on this issue. The v7 and v8 springs are slightly different at the top. The spring version should match the top hat version.

    Can't be more satisfied. I had JIC FLT-A2 coilovers on my old car with 22mm swaybars and this one handles just as well. Although, the ride is much nicer. Comfort is similar to stock. But, when you lean into it you notice a huge difference.
