    Just need some help here.I've seen some Subaru Impreza Sti pink rear strut brace in the parts catalogue. But apparently there are 3 different types. One for the GF and two for the Gc. My question is which one will fit the Gc8 version 5? Do you guys have any pictures of the difference. Thanks

    The two different ones I found. The 2 looks different at the shock bracket end.

    Also the one parts catalogue said there are 2 different types. One for version 5/6 and one for earlier models.

    Later cars had more clearance at the rear of the i/cooler - bulkhead area so routing was different

    I bought this one although it had no version on the advert but looked tempting :D but I do have another one coming that is allegedly from a Version 5 so will post up a photo of that when it turns up.

    I would guess that all saloon/coupe versions would fit all the GC8 models they just changed the design of the end brackets over the years.
