Will this work? My fronts are taking a dump and no rockauto doesnt carry any for the Loyale.

No. Much too large.

Get springs from a yard or the dealer.

...a yard or the dealer.


If i hadn't tried both, I would say that'd be feasable.

Except they told me the car and its parts are "obsolete, phased out", and gave me a hard time asking for anything.

Regardless of what your dealer says the parts are availible. The springs run about $60 each on the front from Subaru. Call a dealer that doesn't employ morons.

Try $90 a piece from a Westchester dealership.

I'm not all knowing, so how should I know where to call without a recommendation?

I think 2.7 Loyale used them, but with 4Runner (IIRC) struts? But I believe the ride height was much higher..

What about when you do the 5-lug imp/lego swaps? with the impreza struts, don't you use the imp springs and EA hats? or did I read that wrong?

It includes front & Rear suspension ideas... mainly for rude use / offroading.

I Hope that will be Useful.

Caboobaroo said 93-2001 Impreza ones will fit on an XT6 which is 5 lug and on an RX which I would think is the same as a Loyale? Unless his RX is 5 lug and I missed that detail somewhere haha.

the RX and the XT6 use completely different suspension. XT6 = Impreza suspension RX = EA82 suspension.

The RX most likely had a 5 lug swap done if they used impreza springs

Cool, really appreciate the info on all this, guys.

I'm going to order the parts from my upstate dealership. They have stock still and even though the prices are higher, since they're new, unused parts.

Am I reading correctly that wagon springs are accepted by the sedans? I know I read up about them being "stiffer" for the rear, but what about the fronts?

Again, thanks a lot, guys.
