I thought about this.
Did you just buy this car? Someone else just mentioned getting a GT.
The cost of trading in that brighton for a outback, 97-99 wouldn't be all that expensive of a difference I would think. Since you want a taller suspension.
First of all you would get about 30 or 40 more horsepower? I think the brighton had 122 horsepower? You could get the H6 outback (harder to find) but then you would get what, another 80-90 horsepower?
You wouldn't have to spend the few $100 to change out the suspension.
You would get the thicker 18mm rear sway bar.
Depending on the options, you might get the nice leather package, heated seats, etc.
Just a thought.
