I know an easy upgrade is replacing the rear swaybar with one from an Outback, but what are the options for the struts/shocks/springs? Is it possible to use the suspension components intended for a Legacy GT? Any idea how much this could cost me?? Thanks.

As for aftermarket, there is plenty out there. I put KYB GR-2 shocks in my car (still on stock springs) and this made a world of difference in handling without making the ride too stiff. (~$250/set). Take a look around, and I am sure you will find some options. PDM racing has a few on their site here, but there are other vendors as well.

bump. Surely someone has worked on their Legacy L's suspension...?
I put KYB GR2's on a 90 leg wagon that originally had air. I was very pleased. Required going to a yard and getting the upper bearing mounts and springs + the new struts from tire rack. $150 from the yard. OEMs where too high for me.
On my current ride (99 Leg GT wagon) I put the KYB GR2's. Again very pleased. I would guess that the KYB's would be good on yours. Then maybe look at larger sway bar. I dont really know what the difference is with the GT vs L suspension. I can check the diameters of the sway bar if you are interested.
