I am thinking about buying a 93 Subaru Legacy with electronic suspension. The rear struts are shot. From what I understand, the parts are dealer only $$$$$. Can I remove the electronic suspension in just the rear and instal cheaper combo of springs and struts? If I switch the rear to non electronic suspension, do I have to switch the front too? Thanks.
From what I was told, the suspension computer monitors all 4 struts. If they are not at the right height, it runs the compressor until they are. If it doesn't get the correct height signal within 10 minutes or so, it creates a fault, turns the warning light on the dash on and turns the compressor off. I would assume if 2 of the struts were missing it would never get the signal it wants and would always create a fault.
It might work but you might also just find the 2 remaining air struts defalting all the time.
On mine, I just picked up a couple used air struts from the junkyard.

Just replace all the air struts with conventional struts and springs.
