Hi. We race a 1998 Legacy AWD in ChumpCar. We did  4 events in our first season last year. We started with a totally stock car with 289,000 miles. As we destroyed parts, we upgraged and improved, learning as we went.We now have WRX brakes, and Legacy GT 16" wheels.  We need cheap upgrades for our stock suspension. We need the car lower and stiffer. I have searched and find conflicting information, depending on who you ask. Are 2002 WRX springs stiffer and or shorter than the stock Legacy springs? Are 2002 WRX struts shorter and or valved differently? What would be the best package for roadracing? As of now I am leaning toward new stockish KYB struts and H&R lowering springs. Any knowledgable help would be appreciated.


Thanks, Todd

After doing more research, we went with "cheap" coilovers off ebay for a WRX. Adjustable ride height with built in camber plates and pillow ball mounts.

I was gonna say cut the springs because that would get you lower and stiffer at the same time.
