Default WRX springs on an Outback Ltd Wagon?

Would the stock '02 wrx wagon springs work on an '01 outback ltd wagon?
Is there any significant difference between the spring rates of the two models?

Both are MT.

I'm thinking of putting the prodrive springs on the wrx and was wondering if the wrx springs could do some good on the wife's outback.

Thanks of any help.

The rear multilink suspension of the BE/BH Legacy does not use struts, so the springs from the WRX will not work on it. Also of note, the 3rd gen Legacy Outback weighs quite a bit more than the WRX, so I'm sure the spring rates are way out of spec.

Interesting; I didn't think the OB LTD came in MT. Cool.

Oh, well. Looks like a bit more metal to add to the collection in the garage...

FWIW, I believe the only subaru that only comes in AT form is the H6 outback.

Thanks for the reply.

Default Hey Rooster

How do those struts and springs work on your Outback? I wanna do the same. Is it worth it you think? How is ride quality, sorry for all the Q's. I'm just interested. Thanks
Russell
PS they are the wagon springs and struts right

I just want to clarify that the original inquiry was regarding a MY01 Outback.

Good to hear that someone has the swap on a BG, though. That's promising since there aren't too many aftermarket options. I might do the swap if I had the money. Not sure if I can live without the ride and tire height.

roosterpc27, I just noticed that you mentioned you have an 99 OBS in another thread. I was under the assumption that you had a Legacy-based OB as opposed to an Impreza-based OB. That would definitely explain the ease of which you swap WRX suspension into your OBS.
