Default Legacy struts

I will be strut shopping for my de-Outbacked Outback soon. I know that KYB has the GR2 for Legacys. I also know that folks run the AGXs and FHI V5 struts on Legacys even though they are Impreza parts. What else (no coilovers etc.) is available for these cars? I don't think Koni, Bilstein, Boge etc. make anything for them.

What do you do with the plastic sleeves and stuff that go on struts when you run an inverted strut like a V5? Do they come with everything you need?

I would like to hear from anybody running V5s on a Legacy. What would you pick between V5 and GR2 since both go for similar amounts?

Thanks, Doug

There are tons of legacy specific parts. GAB, penske, fighter-x, whiteline parts just to start. As for the dust boot, you can put it over the strut housing per normal. Not sure if it will help all that much .

Smile Huh?

It sounds to me like it is V5s or KYBs (GR2s or AGXs) from the well known brands that don't cost a fortune. Price-wise it goes like this: GR2 (~$260-280), V5 (~$300), AGX (~$390). As far as I know, the AGX is only available for Imprezas and first generation Legacys but will work. Anything else in the sub-$500 range?

Doug

Edit: spelling
