Yoyo, first time poster.

I have a FWD XT. I want to stiffen the ride without lowering it, or lower it minimally (already can barely fit my head under the thing). I have four new KYB-Gr2's already. Does anybody have any recommendations for a set of springs for me? Im thinking some adjustable Honda springs might work?

might be worth seeing how much new Subaru OEM front springs are.  sometimes you get lucky and they're  not as expensive as you'd think.  those would probably work great.


are you a member of subaruxt.com?   a few members have experimented with various springs and commented on them there.

Fwd ea82 wagon springs should be stiffer, there is a oem spring rate chart out there if you search deep enough.

jeszek has some great posts regarding springs from other makes.

I have tried to register with subaruxt.com but it would never work.

Thanks for pointing me to Jeszek, I'm going to go with the 89 prlude front springs to replace the rear springs.
