Post Boosters didn't work...stock springs on AGXs anyone?

I tried the Pep Boys spring booster solution, and it worked great in the ride height department. I got just over 3/4" front and back. But handling-wise, I lost that feeling of solidity at the corners, which we speculate is because you have a 1.5", squirmy rubber donut in the dance all of a sudden. The rear never did settle in right.

So, I'm going back to the stock springs with the AGXs for now, pending someone coming out with a spring kit for our cars that gives a legitimate 3/4-1" drop for my '98 GT wagon. Dale Teague has a set of Whiteline springs that he's checking out, so I'll see. Someone else mentioned GABs, but the problem enters with the greater weight of the wagon, apparently.

Ah, well. What can I expect from stock springs and AGXs, anyone?

Should be a decent ride.

Mine has stock springs and GR2s but i wish i had the AGX' adjustability for the auto-x.

Then again, i wish my car were lower and stiffer as well.

I also taked to mr Teague and hope that those springs are a ~1" drop with good characteristics.

I just received an e-mail from Dale Teague. You guys have been in touch with him, so you might have gotten the same information.

According to his initial driving impression, it seems that the Whiteline springs are very promising with the minimal drop that you're looking for.

He still doesn't know if they make it for the 2000 Legacy though.

The Whiteline news is good.... I wonder if that will handle the slighly heavier weight of the wagon? I know that Whiteline stuff is first-rate.

I have a '98 wagon, so I'll be good to go.

I've got the slightly lighter 93 Turbo Wagon, so i'd need some robust ones as well.

Is Teague the only Whiteline source in the US?

IIRC, Teague's is the source in the east and ISR is the source in the west. You can also get them from Mofugas.com, who is the Whiteline ditributor.

Kevin, I'm pretty sure that there are separate spring kits for wagons and sedans...at least the ones that I've looked into.

he GTGuy, I think I e-mailed you about my AGX/Stock spring experiences. Not a bad combo, esp. if you're in a city and concerned about height/bottomming etc. But certainly a compromise on handling.

Are the Whiteline springs for wagon or sedan? I have to think the wagon is heavier (maybe by 100 lbs?) in back than the sedan and putting the same spring as a sedan in back would droop.
