It would be really helpful to get hard data in the form of measurements to compare these, and not just ride height, measurements on the struts/shocks too. You can spend all day mixing and matching, and until you know the specs on the mechanicals you are working with, it will always be a shot in the dark and you could go through 10 iterations without really knowing what you are comparing.

One of the critical measurements is spring perch to upright bolt hole (front) and spring perch to LCA mounting eye (rear). If those are the same between Legacy and WRX, then the springs are what is controlling the ride height, not the strut assembly.
