Default Suspension Questions for the 2000 Legacy

I got a 2000 Legacy GT Limited, would the following items work for my car? Also, i know how to install the front strut tower brace, but how do i do the rear one? Should I get an anti sway bar as well?

I was looking at possibly getting the first 3 items on that page, later on, getting sport springs...

From experience, I don't believe the front strut brace does a lot. The rear definitely seems to have an impact on my 2k Legacy wagon, though. I definitely advise getting a swaybar for the rear, but you won't find one at COBB. They've had troubles sourcing a good bushing, and refuse to sell the bars in stock with bushings they don't feel are quality, even if it means customers buy bars elsewhere!

just to save you the ehartache and toruble..... anything marked for use on the wagon as far as springs go WILL NOT WORK ON YOUR CAR.. WAGON PARTS ONLY WORK ON THE WAGON...

when you get ready to buy the springs, let me know and i will dig up the part numbers form whiteline

Keep in mind.. Sedans don't have rear strut towers.. shocks are bolted right onto the body floor.. you can check it yourself.. just remove covers in the corners (the side wall ones) just behind the back seats and you will see 2 bolts and plastic round cover on the floor..

If you want to stiff en up your car get the rear swaybar.. or even KYB-GR2 shocks and some new springs..

I recently replaced all my stock shocks with GR2s and there is huge difference.. I'm still using stock springs..

I had luck with japanese springs on Legacy GT sedan.
You will need to change the front spring plate to Impreza one though since US version has a larger diameter plate.

I used Tein, kg/mm and both work just fine.

I do recommend performance strut though.
