You can run WRX suspension as long as you use the WRX tophats, IIRC.

True, but I do believe it will lower you more than what the springs are rated for on a WRX.

do a search for russell rogers' car. His outback is dropped on WRX springs, as are a couple of others here. Drop Russell a PM. He's pretty knowledgeable, and I'm sure he'd be happy to help you.

If you have a normal non Outback Legacy look at eibach, H&R, and B+G suspension. Those copmpanies all make stuff for a regular BD Legacy.
