I need some help deciding which replacement struts to use on my 90 legacy AWD LS. The ones I have on now are leaking bad and I get a little tire rub in the back on some bumps LOL. I have read a lot about KYB. But I was looking for adjustables but I don't think they make them for this year. If anyone has sugestions I'd be really thankful.

They do make adjustable KYB's for your car, they're called AGX's. The non-adjustables (what I'm getting this summer) are GR2's.

They will be a night-and-day difference. I have 2-year-old Monroes on my Legacy and they're complete garbage. I expect a big difference just by switching to GR2's. Others have reported similar results.

Bought my 91 Legacy in 96 with 116,000 miles on it. Put KYBs on it within 1 month. Now have 247,000 miles on it and they're still working great!

My '91 wagon had KYB's non-adjustables and I couldn't complain one bit!

Once you get them, legacycentral.org has a great write-up of installation with planey of pics.

My rears were so bad I couldn't drive the car anymore. It was a total pogo stick in the rear. I replaced with non-sdjust KYB. Awesome.
