Default B4 Bilsteins with Stock Springs?

Howdy everyone.

Just got my 2000 Legacy today, and love it. The previous owner installed the B4 Bilstein struts front and rear (with matching springs). Now, I'm not gonna complain about the strange stance, but the road I live on is rather ****ty and covered in pot holes. I'm taking off the 17's it came with and placing WRX wheels instead but I want the ride to be a bit higher and a bit softer. I know the Bilstein struts are way better than stock, just checking to see if OEM springs will fit in them OK (the seller gave me all his original suspension).

And a pic of my new baby!



Those wheels are for sale if anyone's interested (Advan AVS T6 17x8)

just remember to transfer the front top spring perches as well, as the springs tops are different on the USDM vs. international models.

Came with it. Why?

He has adjustable camber plates on the front, noltec, except I think they are set up wrong as his camber is the same and caster is way off.

Oh wait, perches, you mean the plate the spring sits in, then the bearing, then the mount?

i may be interested in the Advans... what tires are on them and how much tread is left. Interested in trade? I have oem subaru 16" Legacy 2.5GT wheels to offer... "Gold Snowflakes". Currently no tires mounted, so shipping would be relatively efficient. lmk

I have a set of WRX wheels I'm throwing on so no thanks, but throw me an offer if you want them still. Tires are Hankook Ventus evo v12 225/45-17, have about 7/32 tread or so. Pretty decent.
