assembling 4 new 96 0utback struts to put on a 90 air ride legacy so I have no parts { if I understand correctly 96-98 outback should work is any year better then the other I noticed some different part # } since ordering all new
ordering 2 front , 2 rear springs 2front kyb struts and mounts 2rear kyb struts and mounts, 4 bellows I believe they come with bumpers, top and bottom rubber gaskets for the spring perches then the Subaru parts for you diagram gets a little fuzzy can anybody think of any other parts I need , This stuff is gonna cost almost as much as i paid for the car. But I couldn’t off it sitting like it is for nothing so I guess it is what it is thanks bill

You will need rear tophats that fit your 90 Legacy.

Tophats from a 95+ won't fit without drilling new holes in the body, which can be hard to do and keep them centered and not throw off camber.

good luck.....I';ve never seen anyone use OB struts with functioning air ride setup.

It comes with everything you need, even the mount nuts. Just reuse the two strut bolts and nuts that are already on there.
