Recommended Posts

You're going to have to put the whole strut assembly in there, springs, keepers, damper, the whole thing. I think the control arm and rear knuckle are different too. Maybe not, since I've seen people put GT suspensions into Outbacks fairly simply, generating an "Outback GT."

 

Another thing to think about is the fact that your 14" wheels are going to look a bit goofy in there. You may want to think about picking up some 15" wheels and some 205/70R15's like a real Outback has. How you deal with the speedometer reading low is up to you in that case.
