Talked to Jeff Perrin himself. They do not work on cars any longer due to liability. They just make parts for WRX, EVO, Neon, & Minis.

The hunt goes on.

Thanks for the recommendation. I just called and spoke with Sean.. Sounds knowledgable.
I booked in for the:
60K mile tune
SPO rear bar
GR-2s/Perrin springs all around

I will follow up with an evaluation of their work next week.

Cheers!

Rallitek says that they have been using the Impreza springs on the Legacys for awhile with great success. More progressive ride than the H&Rs. Fronts fit fine and rears only need a new/used top mount (junk yard special).

Carr Subaru service is very good - they're a little more expensive, since they're a dealer, but the work is always top notch. I think they might have a discount for i-club members, too, or at least they used to.

Carr Subaru is good...I can confirm. I've been going to those guys for the last 3 yrs and I've had no bad experience so far. It is indeed a bit more expensive. The do have the 10% discount for SPEC members too.

Knowing that I have a Legacy, someone asked last night if I was into that grass racing? They had seen a bunch of Subarus (Legacys) racing a grass course at Hillsboro Fairground two weekends ago.

We are everywhere!
