Can someone tell me if these are wagon-specific or if they will work on a BE too? I imagine the rear spring rates are high for the wagon but I just want to make sure.

They're awesome springs. Mix 'em up with GR-2's and you'll think you're in a different car.

The H&R website is equally confusing.

Listing the only springs available as "wagon type" but then following that with "BE/BA". ????

They are sure they wont work on Outbacks though.

I know, that's what has been throwing me off I'm thinking that it won't work and would cause the back end of my car to sit pretty high. But at the same time i find it odd that H&R would make springs for the 3rd gen wagon and not the sedan Someone on here has to know the answer to this. Tora?

Logic would suggest you would need different springs for the rear like you say. Subaru uses different springs for the rear oem.

I got H & R's number, I'm just going to call them in a few when I get out of work and ask them about it. If they fit I'm buying them as soon as I get home. I'll let you guys know what I find out.

wrx_driver_2002 sold a set to Staar a while back. Thats the P/N he had too. Both of them had sedans, so i'm guessing they'll work. I think you may need Impreza group N tophats though....

To the best of my knowledge, the wagon and sedan springs are different. You will need Impreza tophats (they sit on top of the springs, if it helps clarify what you need to the parts man) for the front, although they don't really need to be Group N. I used the stockers, and they work fine.

They worked on Staar's sedan just fine (At least I think that's what she said). They weren't for my car at all. I've got a BD Legacy. THe only reason I had them s=is because they were left over from another customer who bought them for his BD, and they ended up sending springs for a BE/BH, which wouldn't work on his 1999 BD.

Just an update on this. I spoke through email to subaruparts.com and they said they would fit but I would need to change out my front struts. I am assuming he meant strut mounts. Anyway, I'm going to buy them, if they don't work I'll sell them to one of the BH guys on here for more of a discount. Thanks for all the input guys.

I wish that made sense, but it doesnt AFAIK. Not what you wrote, but either option above. Cant see any reason for changing front mounts or tops for a BE versus BH. They use identical front struts unless I am mistaken.

As above, you'll need Impreza spring toppers. They're something like $13 each at the dealer.

x4 or whatever we are up to

The BE and BH (USA) are not different but most of the springs come from overseas and the top hats, spring peach, or whatever you want to call it they use for the BH/BE (non-USA) are different there so they make them for that application. You will need Impreza tophats (just the crappy metal Chinaman hat looking thing) Like LIS said you can get them new for like 13 or at a yard for even less.

You will understand once you take your strut/spring assembly out.

Disclaimer: Now that I type up the whole USA/overseas story I am thinking I may be full of crap. But either way you need the Chinaman hat from an impreza.
