I've had the megans on my car for over a year and 20k miles. NYC miles on top of it. I love them. I got them on ebay. There is one company that has them for a great price on there. I paid under 900 shipped

I had some Megan Racing coilovers for a while but went back to stock. Mine were very 'bouncy'. I'd come to a stop no matter how soft or how hard and I felt like I was on spring pads or something. Nothing seemed to help so I ended up selling them and going back to stock.

Not really coilover related, Are all the suspension parts compatable from the B4? I know thw platform is the same or similar but what about height difference? Are the struts long enough to work on the Baja. I would love to buy the B4 STI springs with KYB struts but will it work..........Sorry for the hyjacking.

ksport recommended a starting point on the threaded part of the strut. this was close to regular outback/baja ride height. i forget which was slightly shorter, front or back, but there is enough height adjustment that u should be able to maintan a decent "high" ride height on the baja if that is what u want. the legacy/outback/baja use the same upper strut mounts so u r fine. mine bolted up perfectly, then we adjusted the height for what i wanted.

the front control arms on the B4 are aluminum and the rear has a different type of control arm that is not compatible with the US legacy. otherwise, the main pieces fit.

not sure about the sti springs with kyb struts.
