Got an 03 Impreza sti.

Came to your site because I have a knocking noise from the one of the rear wheels.
Seems to be a common problem with the shock absorbers and about 900 from the dealer to fit.
i will contact Subaru UK to see if they can do anything for me about the cost, but would appreciate any advice on how common this fault is.

It looks like it's a common problem.

very common fault.......................back sockers go for fun, we normally replace with KYB aftermarket ones which appear far more resilient
