Here's what I want to do. I want to lower my '92 Legacy Turbo wagon approx 1 1/2" in the front and 1 1/8-1 1/4" in the rear. I am also looking at adding larger diameter bars and running 205/50R15 tires. I want a firm suspension that will still provide a comfortable ride. Basically, I want the cornering to improve.
So the question is where do I find these parts and what is recommended? Strut tops? Springs/struts? Swaybars? The tires and wheels are already covered.

Good things have also been said about Whiteline springs.

sedan/wagon springs should be swappable...
but i'm not 100% if the sedan springs bolt right up in the wagon..
try asking the gang on www.impreza.net in the legacy forum
they've done it all by now!
H&R springs will drop the car a bit..
but they're too springy...
lots of bouncing and when i had em on my Legacy
i rubbed in corners (stock tires) and over speed bumps etc.
Whiteline makes a nice 30mm (1-1.5") lowering spring
SPECIFICALLY for the wagon (or so they say!)
heck... we even have em in stock reg $225 per set
i can make you a smokin deal just shout if interested....
whiteline makes a nice adjustable rear bar
$125.95 - for a 18-22mm adjustable rear bar (includes new urethane bushings and a grease kit)
i'd also recommend STi heavy duty strut tops if you can find them for your car... easy to find the newer (2003 - on) but it's getting harder to get the older ones...
call me if you need help... mmmkay?
we have the sway bar and springs in stock
this would be an excellent start on your suspension woes
