  1. 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.
  2. Well I finally manned up and got my impreza lifted! I've got a set of MEATY 215/70/15 snow tires on it now. I have enough clearance around the rear to not need the outback link brackets so I'm going to save those for a car that might pass another inspection instead of this poor thing. I also think I'll run it without the rear swaybar because my family completely dominates my time and it was almost all I could do to get just the struts swapped. I painted the car with an HVLP gun and some slightly thinned hardware store rust paint. The colour didn't turn out quite as OD as it was supposed to but again I don't have time to re-do it all again so it's close enough. Here's a picture for everyone's enjoyment/mockery: Thanks to everyone around here for inspiring and educating me so I could tackle this myself!
  3. Hello to all, I have a 2003 Baja and would like to give it a slight no too stressful lift. Has anyone here used struts and springs from a later year or from a outback or impreza to lift their vehicle? If so, do I need to replace driveshafts too? Arms? Any help and guidance would be really appreciated. Please no flaming.....
  4. So I have decided rather than putting strut lift blocks on my 1990 legacy to get a cheap 2in lift, I would rather switch out struts from an outback or Forrester. How much lift am I looking for each? What about camber issues?
