I'll bite.

Today (yesterday) we installed Espelir GT springs with KYB AGX up front and Koni Yellows in the rear, Group N top hats, and 3/8 Saggy Butt Spacers from Shane at Paranoid.. into my 1998 Legacy GT Wagon.

So far so good.

Bingo. My spring/strut take offs were from a 2004 sedan, so I used the 3/8" spacers to level out the fender gap on the wagon. They were about $30 for the pair, ordered directly from Shane at Paranoid Fabrications.

And to keep this thread going, right now I'm getting the torn steering rack boots replaced as well as an alignment.

Wicked exciting stuff.

What are you guys painting your calipers with? Standard caliper paint? How long does it last?

I used caliper paint - silver on my Mazda protege 5 . It's just a nice fresh look. Going to do the same to my legacy once I get a new motor. It lasts pretty long. Had some on my mustang for three years. But then sold it . It was fine when I sold it .

Bought my second Legacy! Then I polished the headlights with the 3M Headlight kit. Worked beautifully.
