I don't think they are any different than 08-10 because most applications say 08-12. There is something on the STI version that is different and those are the ones that are not compatible.

Those spring rates are still stiffer than stock. With a coilover that doesn't have too many adjustment settings you don't want to be bouncing all over the place because the shocks cannot damp the aggressive spring rate. Through my research I did see that Tanabe uses KYB struts for their coilovers. As far as the KW's go it's a spring rate that they spec'd when they designed them and I can't remember what it is.

Honestly though I think the Tanabe's would be a much better choice than Megan's or even BC's but that's just me. Someone has to take the guinea pig leap.
