Default legacy suspension

what are my options for improving the suspension on my 1991 legacy wagon?? Tried searching but found nothing. I want to lower it about an inch, and get better handling. I have a few questions.
1. I have heard the top spring buckets in rear are different than later legacies, Is this true?
2. If so, can mine be converted to the later style? Is it worth it?
3. can springs intended for a WRX or similar be used with said later top caps? I am looking for as little lowering as possible.
4. are there any stock subaru springs I can use that will give me a stiffer rate?
thanks for any info.

1) I don't know what they are officially called but I think we are talking about the same thing, but yeah the top mount rubber/plastic/urethane thing is different. The rear springs on 90-91 are tapered so the top mounts are different.
2) You can convert them by getting new top mounts, the Sti's are recomended as they are harder and so flex less. I think only the gc8 93-01 impreza style will fit that, not 100% sure on that though.
3) As long as you get the new topmounts you can use any non-tapered spring that will fit any bc/bf or gc8 impreza for sure. Others might fit but again I don't know for sure.

You really ought to check out bbs.legacycentral.org tons of info on the bc-bf legacy.
