Default suspension questions

well..... i was screwing around with some friends on a dirt road yesterday and got too sideways and skimmed a ditch. long story short, i need a new control arm, inner tie rod, sway bar link and strut. any opinions on struts? i don't really want to pay $110 for one oem strut but don't know if its worth the $1000 for the megan racing setup. any opinions on a mid-range set? or is the megan racing setup really worth it? i don't take it to any autocross events or anything. just looking to do a bit of an upgrade. i have an 05 turbo and i saw a set of kyb gr-2's for $250 but they were for 03-04 and i understand that they increased the ride height in 05 but that should just be taller springs right? any info would be greatly appreciated!

You can get the Megan set for less than a grand. Shop around. BC might make a set too. Good luck

the legacy and outback from 2000-2004 and baja from 2003-2006 all have the same suspension setup. there is a body spacer on the outback (maybe baja too) that adds most of the height. i have the ksport gt pro coilovers on my car and love how it feels. they do have the kontrol pro set which is cheaper. there are 36 levels of adjustment on these.

i also have my old suspension set that will fit ur baja of ur interested.

I picked up my megans on ebay. Paid under $750 shipped. Use the make a offer most of them listed for a baja sit there for a long time. Not many of us buying them. You could proberbly get it cheaper
