Simple Question

Do struts from a 1992 Subaru Legacy fit in the 1991? Rears only.

KYB struts.


Thanks.

yes and no. the top hats are different, and if you use the rear top hats from the 91, they will knock like hell

You can use a washer assortment and some inginuity to get rid of the knocking. look at the strut shafts, and how they mount to the top hats and you shall see what I mean.

Could you use the top hat from the 92?

no. the top hat from the 92 shares the same top hat bolt pattern as 02 to 07 imprezas. the 90-91 legacy shares the top hat pattern as 93-01 impreza. You can use an 93-01 impreza rear top hat, if your spring is conical, just don't use the metal spring part, let the spring sit on the hat itself. Reuse the rubber strip from your old top hat.

that's how I am rolling agx's and 05 sti springs on my first gen coupe

So it sounds like if we use the top hats from an impreza and our old springs it will work?
