Default Suspension question!

Hello fellow subie owners.
I'm looking to get some increased handling performance. What would be a few good suspension upgrades I could do to my 1998 legacy outback?

How much moneys you got?
Struts, springs, swaybars.....go read the stickies in the suspension section. Your question is too broad, you need to educate yourself.

Ask a moderator to move this to Brakes, Steering and Suspension.

Wrong forum.

Sway bars, coils with stiffer spring rates, a good set of tires, etc there's tons of stuff depends how far you want to go and what you want to do with the car

Start by replacing every single bushing in your car.

Then when your wallet refills, replace your blown struts/springs.

Then swaybars. Usually sways come before struts/springs, but since you have a 98 with God knows how many miles and when they were replaced last, start there.
