For the OP and other knowladge gurus: What about the seat back or the whole seat.
It drives me crazy not to have a foldable seatback in a sedan. So can i swap easy or with light modifications? Or NOT?

Thank...

drive = freedom

I used a STI rear sway bar off an 07 STI, But it was 10 MM wider than the wagon bar. Im not sure if they changed the width, but i had to bend the bar 5mm on each side.


and no you cant use the fold down seats in a sedan. at least without a lot of cutting and welding. I suppose it would be possible if you got the skills.

This sucks, no one has the whiteline control wagon specific springs in stock, I guess I'm gonna go with the whiteline flatouts with KYB struts

Just Bought an 04 wagon and I am very pleased with it. One question though can the 17x7.5 or 17x8 STi bbs wheels fit with stock suspension? If so what size tire should be used to avoid possible rubbing in the wheel well? Btw I live in NYC where there are potholes galore so I need a little extra meat between rim and road!

yes but you need to buy the wheels off of the 04 STi only because the 05+ use a different bolt pattern

Very interesting and Helpfull... now to find some Sedan arms for my Hatch!
The rear spring length thing is helpfull, I knew about the rate difference as I found this site NorthUrsalia.com: Spring Rate Chart
and this actually gives me a new idea for which springs to get

Is there any other differences? Brakes, engine? other?

Btw what needed to change round lights to newer ones? Shopping list? (I plan to do wider control arm change at the same..)

Hood of said year's headlights, fenders, bumper, and in some cases I believe the wiring harness needs to modified. And depending on what year, the radiator support.

There are no drivetrain differences.

The hood is the same wagon or sedan. I was answering what would be needed to swap to a newer year front end. If you want to go from 02 style to an 04 or 06, you will need that years hood. Bumpers are different from sedan to wagon. Sedans are slightly wider to accommodate wider fenders.
