Default Bugeye Bump Stops etc...

So I'm changing my 2002 Bugeye WRX saloon shocks to KYB Excel G's.
My current setup is standard shocks and eibach springs.
As the springs are getting on I'm going to change them, had a price for PCA dynamics springs but still tempted to go for a new set of Eibach's.
My question is, does anyone know which bump stops I need or are standard ok, car has only done 45k miles but want to refresh whatever is needed to save doing it again. Would it be wise to change the top hats at that age/mileage or will they be ok?

Thanks in advance.

Ayde.

Yes they do but they are 2003 on so require different top hats and spacers so wasn't sure if the supplied bump stops will fit the 2002 shocks. Imagine they will because as far as I know it's just the springs that are slightly different?
Fitting the Eibachs would work out cheaper, just wondering if there's a better bump stop option for them?

You could buy only bump stops from PCA.

The worst part of standard Subaru suspension design is the sodding Bump Stops.

On ANY Subaru, any age, any condition, there is only one answer to the question of 'should I change my bump stops'....YES!

PCA ones are far far better with any spring combo than O.E. Peter's, O.E. Eilbach, Uncle Harry's Scrap yard specials, you name it.

Even Cutting down O.E. bumps is better than leaving the crappy things where they are.

Just saying...
