According to cars101, the 08 and 09 have same overall height (58.1") and ground clearance (6.1")
wait to get some take-offs from an 09 when someone puts coilovers on. the ride height is the same, but the suspension is my favorite change on the 09's. It isn't super stiff, but it's not soft either. it is perfect for me.
That's crazy!!! I bought 09 WRX shocks and struts from Subaru Genuine Parts for ~0.
That does not sound right dude? 0 for subaru shocks AND struts?
Yep - that's for the shocks and struts. I'm still waiting on them to arrive. As for springs, the factory units are too high for me. I've got some 08+ STI Eibach's that I'm going to install.I think those are just for the struts. The springs were not listed along with the STi top hats and other misc. hardware.
