rear struts impreza/forester?

hi hoping can get some info about this. Rear offside spring pan has collapsed and fouling tyre on my impreza gx 2002 wagon. so will require new strut.
now i have been told that i could use forester struts (which would be great as know where i can pick some up for next to nothing) but is this right enough can i use them on my car with no problems? i would have thought i would have size and camber probs doing this??

Also would be grateful if anyone could tell me what struts from any other models would fit. need to get this sorted asap and on a budget!

Re: rear struts impreza/forester?

I heard the same thing, i would think that the struts for the forester would be longer then the ones on the impreza. i was lookin to do the same swap but with the springs too so i could lift my 95 impreza. did you try junk yards or craigslist for struts, thats where i'd go for cheap parts.
