Default White line springs coming for '01+!

Just got a message from one of the cats @ whiteline and he says:
"We are getting asked about springs for the current series Legacy, which we
are planning on developing in the very early future. I would anticipate
these to be released in the first quarter of 2002.

He also mentioned that they are working out the problem that Jacob's having, so it shouldn't be an issue. It's about time, I've been waiting for springs for almost a year now.

Nitrohuffer:

Other than the fact that my rear springs are a bit too low, I have nothing but good things to say about the Whitelines. I am amazed at how good the ride quality is, even with such a significant drop. I am using the stock struts and the ride is great! I would also strongly suggest an upgraded rear sway bar. I have recently installed the Whiteline 20-22-24mm adjustable sway bar and it (combined with the springs) has completely changed my car's ride. My car stays almost completely durring high-speed cornering and I can finally bring the rear of my car around corners without plowing the front tires. My car went from a firm but cushy ride to an ultra sporty cart-like ride.

I would also highly recomend Brett Moncur from Renick Subau for all your Whiteline parts. His prices and service have been super.

Jacob,
Yeah man, I don't want any crap on my car so I'm waiting for the whitelines. Thats funny I have a 20-22-24 whiteline on it's way from Cobb Tuning! Dumb question for you. Are the outermost holes on the ends the 24 setting? I've never messed around with a adjustable bar before. I'm sure I'll figure it once I see it in person. I'm suprised at how on point they are with getting back to people. Too bad you live across the country I'd like to get a pic of our cars side by side once I get my springs and hood. It would look like a legacy ying/yang

<i>Nitro</i>: It's the other way around... The innermost holes are the stiffest setting... It's all in the leverage.

Default Back to Springs

What I hope is that they provide a good set of up-rated springs with mininal lowering (>3/4") and specific rates for Sedans/Wagons. Seems most people with Legacy's don't want to lower the car as much as improve the handling.

And speaking of springs I would still like to know what the Stock US Spec rates are for both BE/BH's. I find it hard to believe that people can make claim that their springs are xx% higher than stock but can't tell you what stock rates are!!!

I'm not so much interested in lowering as I am in improving handling. In fact a lowered car would be a negative to me. Yeah, they look better, but I have to drive this thing, every day, over some fairly gnarly roads. I just want the handling to be crisper. So I probably want performance struts instead of springs, and I'm not aware of any being available for the '00+ Legacy lineup yet.

Agree x 2

That is why I have been thinking about Fully-adjustable... there are times that I have wanted to go UP (mud, dirt, gravel, general off-road). But for day-to-day use, there is no reason for me to go lower. BUT, I would not mind a crisper handling characteristic.

I also wanted my car's handling to improve more than I wanted to lower the ride height. I am currently talking with Whiteline to try and figure out why their springs lowered my car 2 inches front and rear. You all may want to wait to order your Whiteline springs until I get final word as to whether or not all of their Legacy springs will lower as much as the ones I installed. I am sure Whiteline is interested in knowing exactly how their springs work on our U.S. spec cars, and would be willing to make any changes necessary. They definitely make a good product, just as long as their specifications are compatible with our applications.

I think I've got the wife talked into this mod for her 2002 Legacy to improve the looks. It's sporting WRX wheels and debadge all that could be. tinted windows and will soon have some custom fog lights mounted or an outback front bumper retro fitted and color matched. This springs are something I've been waiting for for quite some time. Hope the guys at whiteline make it happen.

So what was the issue that you had with the Whitelines... 1. Is the rear too low or 2. it is too low overall, or 3. both?

I was just about to order Whiteline springs for my GT... but I guess I'll wait until they get back to you! Could you keep me informed? Thanks alot!

Chris.

Yes, that is why they are a popular choice.

Agree X 3

One of the reasons they are designed to work with the stock struts are that there are NO aftermarket adjustable struts for our cars (as of yet). Accruit has offered a full replacement option, but I've not got the funding for that kind of swing.

Keep us posted when they are made available.

EDIT: ION Perf has springs available also. I dont recall the specs or the price off hand, but I would hope these will be competitively priced.

This is what I got from whiteline:

<HR>

Hi William,

Thanks for your interest in Whiteline products.
Unfortunately we offer performance lowering springs only in our range. However we can supply other brand standard height up-rated springs;

Dobinson Springs;
front std height part# DC19088
rear std height part# DC55031

Trust this helps.

Regards,

Wojtek Rogulski
wojtek@whiteline.com.au

Go flat out with Whiteline Automotive

<HR>

These are for a 97, will see how they work.

IIRC you can get JDM spec struts/shocks for the BH series that will be stiffer than the US market dampers. As for fit, no prob they are all FHI. Also unless my mind is failing me the B5 has a higher rate of struts than the base Legacy in Jap.
