Hey everyone,

I figured I would throw up a thread and introduce myself. I have a 1997 Subaru Legacy GT. It is equipped with a 2.5L engine and a 4EAT. I bought the car about a year ago, and it is my first subaru. I love it haha.

When first purchased it had a damaged hood (fly up), broken front windshield, and needed brakes. Talked the guy down in price, and bought it. Shortly after buying it I did the brakes, new windshield, oil change, and air filter. it felt funny so took it to Subaru for a inspection and it checked out good...minus a bad front diff and trans. Long story short that's replaced, new c solenoid and front axles. Just need a rear diff fluid exchange. It has been a journey so far.

Well onto the good stuff I guess

Well folks here she is. 80mm front, and 105 mm rear. This is measured from between lock rings. The springs are all left at factory presets *and they are all equal)

Sway bar, mounts, bushings, links, 6 pc rear links kit, and coil overs, and stainless steel lines are all installed.

Please let me know what you think
