What are some springs that would fit on the front of an EA82 that would life the front end 1 1/2-2"?I could make spacers to space the bottom of the strut away from where it mounts to arm But this is something to be temporary...

Ya do know that you can get adjustable struts for those. They come with a natural 1 and 1/2 inch of lift. . . Camber suffers though.

'85 and '86 4WD models. hard to find replacements for though...

RX springs have a higher spring rate, and will yield a bit of lift in the front as well.

I think I will try to find an 85-86 4wd then,RX's are hard to find...Although if I could find a 85-86 4wd RX then I would be set.I could have a winch/bumper and not have sagging springs..

some one once said front springs from a ford tempo gave 1.5in lift plus a softer ride. still waiting for one to come through my local jy to see if its true.

when i checked ( a year ago) you could still get new factory kyb"s with the adjustable lower spring perchs from subaru, roughly around 150-175 per strut. unfortunately you can't buy them from anywhere else that way, kyb is contracted by subaru to make those struts for them. i got info straight from the tech department at kyb when i ordered some from kyb and came through with the fixed perchs.

Yes it works....this is what I have on the rear of my EA81

Has to be Legacy rear axle inner joint DOJs so they will be 23 spline.

Also, EA82 front axle DOJ and rear inners DOJ will also work for the same, although they aren't quite as deep as the Legacy ones.
