Ok I did it to my 97 legacy, outback struts and crossmember spacer, but will it work for a 92 loyale as well!! and one more question.... how hard is it to convert it from ea82 to ej22?

I'm not sure about the strut question. But for the swap, although I have not done it. It is a pretty straight forward swap, the most difficult part being the wiring.

There is a full DIY thread here: http://www.ultimates...ead.php?t=73676

and places like www.sjrlift.com make conversion pieces

the struts are entirely different in an ea82. the spring is smaller in diameter, and outback springs might be too big to shove into the ea82 strut.

the way around that is to swap in a whole legacy/impreza/xt6 knuckle and strut with the ea82 tophat.

the rear strut is all the way different and you would have to go the accord spring or miata coilover conversion for the back. numbchux would be the kuy to answer your questions in that regard
