Cool Stock WRX suspension or Fozzy Lift??

OK so I've had my 02 wrx wagon a little over a month now I guess, it came with what appears to be a set of lowering coils on stock struts, don't know the brand. I absolutely hate the ride! I though I could live with it until I got a better set up, but I can not. It's way to stiff, bounces something terrible.

Now should I find a set of stock wagon coils and throw them on for the cheap option? Or... I have been dreaming of using forester components to give me a lifted wagon and completely changing the direction of this build. Not that I would be using it off road really, I just think the older I get the more I dislike low, front lip scraping, stiff rides. And I think they look something awesome lifted!

Whatchyall think? Be honest, are lifted wrxs really not that cool and I'm just crazy?

I do know the Foz guys use the WRX components to stiffen theirs up a bit. But I'm not certain of which years are interchangable

If you go with the Fozzy route, check the Dirty Impreza forums for fitment.

I found a few threads on swaps at dirtyimpreza, seems like you need a few more parts then I originally thought. Maybe I'll just go with the wrx stock springs, not that I wouldn't like making a foz suspension work, I don't have the place or space to perform all that I would have to do. Thanks guys
