06 WRX suspension help!

Just got a 06 WRX last week and need help with suspension parts.

1. The car have Cobb rear sway bar installed, do I need to buy the FSB to match it?

2. My friend is selling a set of 04 sti sping/struts (struts color is PINK and springs is BLACK)
will it fit my 06 WRX sedan? If so, how much lower compare to stock?

3. What aftermarket struts available for the 06 WRX sendan?

Thank very much for the help.

Not too much different. Maybe a "little" stiffer, better off buying aftermarket ones.

KYB match well, from what I understand.
Thank very much for the help.

Does the car have aftermarket endlinks on the rear ?

Doesn't the 06+ have metal endlinks from factory?

For your 1st question, it's no, they don't have to match, but it would depend what you want your car to do. If you have a larger bar in the rear compared to the front, you'll get a oversteer which is very popular. Some people prefer a more neutral handling, so you may want to go with a closer matched pair.
