I bought wrx top hats from a cool dude, but I bought them thinking I needed them to lower my impreza outback.

And I just read a post saying I didnt need them, and I infact need top hats from an older leggy. could someone help me.

Help you with what? You didn't really ask a question, so I don't really know what advice you're looking for.

As for the tophats...why not just buy GC tophats? There shouldn't really be any reason (that comes to mind) for why you would need GD or legacy tophats.

It all depends on what springs you are using. If you are using GC/GF springs, then use GC/GF top hats. If you are going to use GD springs, then you need the rear Leggy turbo top hats.

Ah, I gotcha.

Well, from what little I know of using GD tophats on GC's, I believe that the front ones require you to drill at least one hole for the tophat bolts to stick through?

But I'm not really sure...that whole situation is kind of confusing for me too.

I did read something about the rear tophats for the older legacys working though.

GD/WRX top hats 3 studs are farther apart about 1/4 inch more than GC top hats, you have to drilled/slotted from original holes to fit if you want to use GD top hats/springs/struts.
