tempo= any front springs-when i put them under my ej swapped EA82 wagon, I cut a full coil out and it STILL lifted the front end an inch...
I got my springs from a second gen ford tempo 1988-1994 with a v6. ... The springs are actually about 1/2" smaller in diameter than subaru stuff, but they will still seat just fine. ... So I went to the junkyard and found a tempo with a v6 (2nd gen, the yard didn't have any 1st gens, not that I knew what a first gen tempo even looked like) and grabbed its front springs. took them home and was amazed to see that they would work. just a little tall. I had to remove a coil just to fit them on the struts.
... But the tempo springs seem to be holding up just fine. Even tho they aren't as wide. They don't shift at all.

idk about you guys, but I'd rather just save some $$ and get some King springs from australia. Yeah they are $400 for a set but thats only 2x what tempo stuff is. And you KNOW the king ones will work and are actually made for the cars and made to lift them. I'm all for "making stuff work" It just seems like it'd be better to just go with the sure thing.

I knew about those King Springs for the EA82 body since Long time ago, but $ 400.ºº for a Pair, plus Shipping and Handling from Australia... Well, is too expensive for me; also I don't see them listed on their website anymore...
