Default GF8 Eibach Lowering springs

***DELETE***I have a set of Eibach's that are brand new and will fit any GC sedan or coup. I bought them thinking they would fit on my wagon and to say the least i was wrong and i couldnt ship them back because it was after 30 days before they were attempted at being in stalled so they are brand new. they are the Pro-Kit lowering springs that are said to drop 1.2in. asking $200. i said willing to trade because i would be willing to trade for an GF8 parts that would fit on 1997 impreza L wagon. so let me know what you've got or if you've got cash. thanks!

Let me guess, the rear of the wagon was dragging like a dog scooching on the carpet?

I put STi sedan springs under my OBS and had to run spacers in the rear. Food for thought.

Gf8 lowering springs shouldn't be the title if they don't work on a gf.

FYI all the springs are the same. Any spring from a subaru will fit another subaru. Springs are pretty universal, you just probably have to compress them and make sure they are seated right

Yes it is. Look it up. Tophats have nothing to do with the springs. We are talking about the springs here, not struts.

The Eibach's are not wagon specific. They are made for a sedan/coupe but fit wagons exactly the same (you might just want spacers since it will sag in the rear)

Makes no difference. P/Ns are the same across the board for coupe, sedan, and wagon struts.

I followed the guide that someone on rs25 used to put 04 STi springs on their GC sedan, and everything bolted in just fine on my GF wagon.

And I've had local "professionals" tell me that 2.2 heads wont bolt to a 2.5 block, that I couldn't fit STi springs on my GF, that an rs2.5 clutch won't work on my 2.2, and that a UEL header would throw a CEL... So grain of salt with what people say.
