Default Would 2015 -2016 STI stock suspension fit 2008-2014 STI?

Hi guys,I am wondering if the new STI stock suspension will fit into 2008 - 2014 STI or not. I've been reading a lot of thread and seems like coilovers for 2014 will fit 2015 + STI, if that is the case I would assume the stock suspension can be swapped.
Can someone help me confirm if stock 2015 sti suspension will fit into 2014 STI?

Thanks!

Nope and yes. The 2015+ iirc is one inch shorter, they do mount right so it might be a lowering option. Correct me if I'm wrong, been doing too much forum reading on suspension recently.

Im curious to see the benefits of this over say a set of BC Coilovers?

I am considering this route as well, maybe even put on some 2015-2016 RCE springs for added performance.

but no used 2015-2016 struts are in the market. atleast not at the price where i can chose them over a set of used coilovers.

This is what RaceComp said in Nasioc post, it will lower the car by 25mm

RaceComp Engineering:

"I have had BOTH GR STI shocks next to 2015 STI shocks and if you put 15 shocks on your 2008 + you would be lowered by about 25mm ! We haven't tried it, but with the new dampers being significantly better than the previous generation, if the lowering was even front to rear you would have a SOLID set up.

EDIT: 2015 SHOCKS are a FULL INCH SHORTER assembled on the bench than 2008-2014 STI.

With that said it goes without saying that putting 08+ on the 2015 would result in raising the front at least and possibly the rear. "

Bilstein just recently announced full line up for 2015 WRX STI. B6, B8, B12 and B16.

That means if the 2015 shocks is ok, maybe one can combine the B6 + 2015 OEM spring. Or if you want it even lower, go for B8 with up to 50mm drop spring, or just go for B12 pro-kit or B12 Sportline.
