so, I'm in the process of buying an XT6. it's got working air suspension, and I'd like to keep it that way while it works. I would like to convert to EJ front knuckles/brakes. If I got my hands on a pair of working Legacy front air struts, would they work with the XT6 system?

Just reuse the XT6 strut.

The XT6 knuckle, where the strut mounts to, is actually thicker by about an 1/8" than the Legacy k nuckle. If you enlarge the top mounting hole you can even use the Legacy camber bolt.

I am...yep.


I forgot the XT6 strut works with the legacy knuckle pretty easily....I suppose I'll just do that.
