you mean you could not answer it lol -a normal suspension kit for the impreza comes with either 4 coilovers or struts with seperate springs-not that this impresses me but i managed it, konis comes as inserts where you cut the std struts above the spring seat removing all innards and fluid, drill the base of the original strut drop the koni insert in then bolt through base of original strut to hold it secure, theres sleeves you get with it to make the insert fit snug at the top of the strut where youve cut it,then drop spring bk over top re assemble as complete struts job done. Were me only real option coz of the ride height /18`s and money i had available at the time, think they were 500 quid which aint bad for top adjustables an 40mm lower could have got some cheap coilovers but really rate koni`s-just waiting for em to do a coilover kit for the impreza an im there.


to help ya better understand it check this pic where its been cut all that inside part goes in the bin





then these inserts drop down into the strut housing-see the threaded bases where they bolt through the base of original strut(know they aint scooby inserts but same principal)
