GTeaser, I beg to differ. I am not mixing and matching different OEM springs with different OEM dampers. I see it as they were well matched from the factory.
What was more important was the fitment check, rather it was a bolt-on or not. And how the setup rode, and how much drop they provided.
With the Swifts on, the WRX strut body was about half an inch shorter than the 2013 Legacy unit. The rear shock assembly was about identical.
