curious as to why you dont just go with the 04 sti ones? They're just as expensive and are gaurenteed to fit, some WRX strut bars are designed to go over the WRX stock intercooler and therefore might interfere with the STI IC. So ... you'd probably just be as well off as getting the STI ones. Go to ebay... search sti strut (strut bars will come up) and get the sti replica ones. They work great, look great, and are about ~$100 shipped for both front and rear. Good luck!
