First of all, thank you very much for taking on something like this.

I got the Eibach numbers from GTEASER's post was a compilation of what people were stating.

I checked the WRX suspension information at:

2008 spring rates f/r 151/136
2009 spring rates f/r 216/209

But, I see on another forum where they have posted:
"STi spring rates are 217 front/194 rear. 09 WRX are 216 front, 193 rear
The 08 STi fronts are the same rate (+/- a couple lbs) as the 09 WRX stockers, but they have EXACTLY a 1/2" drop.
The 08 STi rears are exactly the same as the 09 WRX stockers in both rate and ride height."

Suffice it to say that MAYBE the WRX springs and struts give you a 1/2" drop while the STI springs will get you a 1" drop?!?!?!?!
STI struts WILL NOT fit.

I wish I had the 2013 legacy spring rates. We assume it is around 192F/204R because it is about 20% stiffer than 2012...but this is just a guess.

Someone please help.
