Any recomendations and websites for BE/BH strut tops/mounts?

I know the BG/BD has a few opinions but havent found any BE/BH's.

They're the same thing. So are the mounts from the Impreza. subarugenuineparts dot com.

front tophats from imprezas work. you're on your own with the rear (nothing will crossover).

if your rears are worn out, replace them with KYB tops. There may be an elusive, "Group N" rear top, but I have a feeling that there is not much give in the stock tops, so there isn't much point in upgrading.

ok. so if i read right there really isnt any diff in the stock rear BE mounts and the Group N's? or is it that there is no option for the rear top mount on a BE?

there may be something in japanland for upgraded rear tophats, but no one has found anything outside of coilovers thus far.

You can use whatever options are available for wrx's and imprezas in the fronts however.

fronts yes, if all else fails you can buy Tein camber plates for the front... rears I dont think so, my Flex series didn't even come with top camber plates.

Any impreza/WRX camber plate will work on the front. I like the Noltecs because they adjust both camber and caster, and they use the stock bolts instead of little allen bolts to secure the camber setting like on some other plates.

Know that any camber plate you run will increase your ride height by 1/8-1/4". The only way around it is to buy the "lowering" camber plates like RRE or something that moves the strut top above the hole on unibody to compensate; they cost around $300-400 though.

The rear suspension on the BE's dont really need camber plates...the design itself increases negative camber and toes in the rear wheels on compression. That's why all the new subaru's use a similar setup in the rear.
