Someone found these in a magazine test (they're not SOA #'s) and thought I would post them up:

Measured in Newtons (rebound/bump) and time is m/sec

2004 WRX front @ .05 303/245, .10 430/314, .15 637/363, .20 803/430, .25 1009/490, .30 1146/519

2004 STi front @.05 352/275, .10 725/441, .15 1097/510, .20 1470/578, .25 1723/647, .30 2057/735

2004 WRX rear @.05 411/176, .10 499/255, .15 665/294, .20 793/363, .25 872/402, .30 999/441

2004 STi rear @.05 245/225, .10 695/333, .15 725/382, .20 960/461, .25 1068/500, .30 1156/568

It's interesting that the damping is significantly firmer in the front- STi vs WRX, but in the rear the damping appears much closer between the two.

As a side the published #'s from FHi on their v7 STi damper is (this is at .30 m/sec) is front 2396/791, rear 1668/690 this compares to the test at 2057/735 and 1156/568, if the above #'s from the test are close than it would appear the v7 struts have quite abit more rebound (and compression)- in the rear than the v8 ones, to the tune of 500 and 100 N respectfully.
