    1995 Subaru Legacy AWD
  1. Suspension on my '95 Legacy is pretty shot (well at the least the rear for sure) I keep hearing that Outback struts will bolt right up and lift the car about 1.5 to 2 inches. I think this is a great idea. But I feel like there is more to it? Do I need outback springs? spacers? anything like that. If anyone can give me any leads/video's/info on this swap. That'd be Great. thanks- travis
  2. Hey Everyone. I have a '95 Legacy LS. I'm pretty sure it's about time to change the struts. I believe they are original parts on a legacy with 350k on it. I was thinking about putting some outback struts on it, hopefully giving it 1 to 1-1/2 inch lift. Just enough room for a slightly more aggressive tire. I'm not sure if I can just swap the struts out or do I need to swap other parts out in addition to make it all compatible. Thanks for any input you have Travis.

  4. Brought my alternator to O'Rileys, it tested bad... Got a new one, cars running fine again
  5. The oil at temp light comes on, the RPM's drop to zero, lights all die. everything points to a bad alternator. I would hate to spend $140 and there be a bad connection somewhere. Just wondering if it is common for a connection problem to cause this, or if advanced auto parts is just a dumb as they seemed. ( watched two people go to the back to get themselves food before someone actually asked me sitting there with an alternator on the counter if i needed help)
  6. So here's my quick update. My room mate gave me jump to get home. recommended I disconnect the battery. So I went to go see if it would start again, and it did. I revved it up and the RPM's passed 3k the battery light went off? I'm pretty stumped. .. ..
  7. I have a 95 Subaru Legacy, Starting to feel like my parents gave me a money pit. But I'm hoping to come out with a Money pit worth having. Did the wheel bearing myself, Car doesn't have reverse (Got transmission, going to get it swapped) The transmission sets me a little over 1000 for used transmission and trans swap. Just recently I got a battery light, car died while driving. I took the alternator out and the battery to the parts store, they tested both of them and determined my alternator was good, but the battery was bad. I bought a $125 battery for it, and here I am two days later battery light on earlier today and car dies while driving tonight. Some how "my alternator is good" but my battery is not getting charged. Anyone have this problem, Where do I start?? Thanks for all the help here ya'll. I got some great info when I originally posted about my transmission which led me to finding a decent deal on a used transmission. Travis-
  8. Thank you everyone. I suppose a pick and pull yard will be my best bet. I have a friend that has swapped a few transmissions and is going to help me out. For now I just drive and park strategically so there is no backing up.. HAHA..
  9. Hello, I just got a 1995 Legacy. I had to take this poor car away from my parents, I just could not see her sit around and be a pile of junk as my parents tend to do with cars with minor problems. I fixed the wheel bearing last night. Now I am working on the transmission. It does not currently go into reverse, It is an automatic transmission. First, anyone else come by this problem. and second, does anyone know a good online dealer, or dealer in general of transmissions, I would like to not spend over 1000 on a transmission for it. Thats if it is not fixable for about the same price.
