Strut/spring options for 97 Impreza

Recommended Posts

Friend has a 97 Impreza Sedan looking to get him new strut assemblies.

 

What rear strut options are there to lift it a little?

 

Are 95-99 Outback and Forester strut assemblies about the same in terms of how much they would lift it?

Forester will be the same as Outback till '02 I think. '03 has a taller spring perch. 

 

King makes lift springs also. 

 

GD

this is a little misleading.

 

Fronts = 95-99 outback or 98-2002 forrester fronts are the same.

 

rears = 95-99 outback struts are the tallest.  Followed closely by 98-02 forrester

 

or 03-08 forester but those have different brake line clips.

 

2000+ outback rears will not fit.

 

for this OP I would recommend 99 Outback struts for all 4 corners, and perhaps the rear tophats from 03-08 Forester for a 1/2" more height in the rear.
