Post Another suspension question for the class

Well two, actually. I anyone running KYB AGXs with the stock Legacy GT springs? I know these are stiff, but are they too stiff for the KYBs?

And what are opinions on Ground Controls?

Don't know about the AGX's but I'm running GR2's on the stock springs and they made a marked improvement over the stockers. They are very well dmapened and i have no complaints about the ride (quite stiff compaired to stock) I was running the H&R springs but they were to low (droped 2.3" frt & 2.3" rear)on my98 GT Wagon and that was just too low.
I am now going the The Drop Shop in Portland, OR and have them drop the front about 1.5" which will even the gap on the frt & rear wheel wells and give the car a slight rake to the front.

the thing with the GT is they use the same struts as the EJ22's so using anything stiffer will be a big improvement.

Ground Control's will work IF you change the springs (rates & lengths), they can help you with this. The rear top strut mount will need to be changed to Impreza 2-piece style to work with their system.

Thanks for the info, guys. The GCs I'm looking at are 8-inchers, which give anything from a stock to minus two-inch (won't be needing THAT setting) ride height, and are 250/300 spring rated. I'm told that this is a good match for the AGX, but will confirm all of that on the 'morrow.

How's your ride height, Scooby 2? Same as stock? More importantly, it sounds like the lateral stiffness has improved immensely.
