Default Whiteline Control Springs for BE/BH

So, I did some searching and I can't seem to find anywhere whether anyone has tried these or not. I have some on my BK and I love them. I'm in the market for new(but lowish cost) suspension for my gf's 2001 GT Limited Sedan. Right now it looks like the only "known" option are either the H&Rs or the iON springs. There are the JDM STi Pinks and the WL as other options, but I haven't seen any testimonials.

Anyone have any info on the Whitelines?

I ruled out the Whitelines pretty early on becuase I heard they sag. Haven't really heard that about the H&R's.

Has anyone installed the Whiteline springs on a BE/BH?

I have the WL Control springs on my BK wagon and they haven't sagged at all in 2 years, FYI. I've been really pleased with them.

Bump for any BE/BH owners with these springs...

I do, but there on an Outback, so you will be about 1" lower in the front (rear is that low due to stereo) than in the pictures here;

I have seen Baja struts, they are longer than our OEM Legacy, the distant between top hat and two screws mount on the spindle are longer. that's why it made Baja taller.

outbacks and baja's got longer struts to compensate for the increase in ground clearance.

Outback/Baja guys looking to use Legacy springs on their cars have to use Legacy struts because the springs are too short for their stock struts.

Does anyone make height adjustable coilover suspension for 2002 Legacy wagon (BH)? I had the H&R springs on my old 97 Legacy GT wagon and was very happy with them.

Yes, Prova makes one specifically. So does Tein. However, you can use BE coilovers; just order a slightly stiffer spring rate for the rear.

I've got Bilstein's with Whiteline's, couldn't use the OE struts as someone said above, the spring would have no compression on it and be flopping around....

Your car would be lower due to the frame spacers.
