are you running the stock wheels and tires?

if so, you might want to look at upgrading those, the front endlinks, and possibly the rear sway bar before going to a height-adjustable coilover system.

congrats on the legacy, too. my first car was a 1988 mercury topaz.

Get use to it. You don't own a Honda. Parts to upgrade our cars are more expensive, but they are better. First try to find a set of GT 16" rims. Get a larger anti-sway bar. Then go from there. You will notice a big difference in just those two mods. You can sometimes find GT rims for sale on this forum. They run anywhere from $350-$400. Look into getting Whiteline swaybar, springs, drop-links,etc. They make some quality stuff especially for Subaru.
