Is there a difference between springs and shocks/struts between the Outback and the GT?

Will the GT stuff fit on the Outback?
Will there be an appreciable benefit?

The outback struts are longer the springs maybe longer too. If you put GT stuff in, you would lower your ride height. If you are looking for better struts, KYB makes some for the Outback. I'm not sure about better springs. Also look into a bigger rear swaybar. The outback has the largest stock ones so you would need to go aftermarket to get a bigger one.

ya the outback has a 18mm rear sway bar stock, the plain-jane legacies only have 14mm stock in the rear, help counteract the merciless understeer that awd gives us. as far as struts and springs, the outback i believe does have like 2'' longer strut/spring combo, and might be a bit stiffer too.
