Recently I was playing in the snow doing reverse donuts and my front right tire sank into some drainage hole in the middle of a parking lot. The results: Flat tire, wobbly wheel, (wheel now has a tad bit of positive camber) bent control arm AKA transverse link, and possibly a bent strut. What I wanted to know is does the new WRX have the same front control arms and/or struts as a 93 - 01 model impreza. On subaruparts.com the part number for a front right transverse link in 20200 for both the WRX and 01 2.5 RS. Same thing with the struts part # 20310A. Only thing different is the pricing??? If Anyone can help, i'd greatly appreciate it. Plenty of people crashing the new WRXs and parting out older imprezas and I want to get some cheap used parts.

OK - what about the struts? top hats? I am guessing those could be had slightly used pretty cheap...:D

strut tops in the front are the same.
rears will be different...

struts will sit differently from gd to gc body...
but i believe swaps have been done.

good luck
