Lightbulb legacy struts vs. impreza struts

has anybody ever had the two struts out of the car and side by side? are the impreza's shorter? are they as short as AGX's for a legacy(BD)? I have whitelines on my legacy and need shorter struts, I am wondering if the impreza struts will do the trick.

yes they'll fit...
and sure.. they should be a tick shorter... but...

*why not just get the AGX's?*
i had them on my GT... they worked fine...

the problem was my springs... H&R's...
too low for that set up... but the Impreza Part # KYB/AGX's
fit the Legacy GT perfectly... so should the Impreza struts...

but if you can get adjustable set up for $390...
www.p-s-t.com then why not just get the KYB's???


good luck

I normally agree with SubieGal, but not this time. I think the AGX's are absolute crap. Myself and 2 other people I knew blew out their rear AGX's in under a year. Id steer clear of them. I have the STi P1 struts now and they are much better. And these are basically the same as the Ver. 5 struts, so Id say get those if you can. They're cheaper than AGX's too, IIRC.
