Once and for all, i am about to purchase struts soon(monday?) for my 1995 impreza. I planned on using 1995 legacy outback struts with forester springs and my stock impreza strut tops. Will this work? Or should i just get forester strut and springs with my impreza tops. I am afraid the spring won't sit right in the outbak spring perch.

I don't think anyone has ever tried that combo.... ever....
I'd just play it safe and get an ENTIRE suspension from one car...
How many miles are on the car? you may want to replace the caps.. depending on how beat up they are.

i went ahead and just got forester struts and will order the springs when i get the funds. Its a 95 with 111,000 miles, The tops look good from what i can see. Not really worried.

Now if mudrat will only ship my bumper, i will almost have my subaru trail setup for some serious offroadin.

95 outbacks weren't lifted... 96 was the first year for the lift. 95 was basically a stock l wagon with visual upgrades...
