^^ Confirmed. They will not fit unless you swap out the hubs, and believe me, thats not worth it.

Tell me why its not worth it...?????
$$$

u need custom axles and new wheels since he has a 2005. then u need to do the rears too so u have the same lug pattern for the front and rear.

why spend lots of money to use a whatever suspension when u can just buy a good spring strut combo.

there are better options than the oem sti strut and springs.


just drop the idea.
