Default KYB AGX or GR-2 struts

I'm in the process of coverting my OB to a GT, and was wondering what struts would be better. Would the AGX stand up to the rallyx. They look a little flimsier than the GR-2's, and the GR-2 are way cheaper, yet they don't have the adjustablility (which I don't know how much I'd use).

Also what springs would drop my car the least (I've still got a Legacy Outback as far as this is concerned) I have a feeling the whitelines for wagons would be best? No?

Thanks

The AGX should do just fine, and they do have the same lifetime warranty. They should hold up well, they're a very popular autocross strut, but i wouldn't be suprised if they're used on some rally-x cars too.

The Whiteline Wagon springs are probably your best choice for the least lowering and best balance.

Thanks

I have 1 set of Legacy GT springs from my 98 GT. They were on the car for 30K Miles and they are in great shape (except for a bit of dirt). I would be happy to sell them to you for just a bit over the cost of shipping. These springs will lower your car less than the Whitelines and they will give your car the exact ride height of a Legacy GT. Please let email me and let me know if you are interested, and I will find out how much shipping would cost.

The AGXs work pretty well with the stock GT springs, too. Take it from a guy who's tried it.

FYI rallysquirrel...the OB i think is 1 inch higher than the GT. So if you put the GT springs in you will drop 1 inch...if you go with the whiteline you are going to drop about 2 inches, maybe 2.2.

I am pretty sure about this anybody want to confirm it.

As far as the struts I have heard good things about the AGX but I dont know much about the GR-2's.

good luck,

bryan

I've got the GR2's now, and honestly I am quite impressed with their handling. They're not too rough, and firm enough for handling.

I'm going to probably be upgrading to the whiteline springs, and when I do that, I may get a set of AGX's. The springs are goin to be firmer, and in turn will need a stiffer spring to control the compression and rebound of it. The AGX would allow me to do that.

If you're goin to autoX and stuff....the AGX's would probably work better, but like I said the GR2's are good struts too.
