I have came upon a set of KYB GR2's with stock springs out of a 93 Impreza. I'm fairly sure they will fit in my 97 Legacy?? Should I use the Legacy springs or just leave the Imp springs in place?

If the car drops and firms up a little, I'll be fine with that:brow: But I have a feeling that the Imp springs are a little light for the extra weight of the Leg...

Any tips? Other Ideas?

This all depends on the trim level of impreza you have - base models are softer than the legacy, while RS front springs are stiffer. Rear sedan springs are way too soft for the rear wagon suspension, and the impreza rear wagon springs are a bit soft for a rear legacy wagon.

It will however all bolt up, provided you have the front upper spring seats for the impreza to put on the legacy (tapered springs I believe), and washers to fit the rear.

Check out more info here.
