Post RE: New here

Hello! I'm kinda new to this forum, so I figured I'd introduce myself here too, since I've got a '95 Legacy L Sedan. (And an SVX too)
Love the car: it has ALWAYS gotten me out of trouble in the snow, and has hauled many, many things.

So, quick question: what kind of mods have you guys put on your Legacy? I'm looking for some improvement in handling, and maybe some more pep. Does anyone make a strut tower brace for our cars?

Thanks,
-Z.

Primitive Racing makes 'em.
http://www.get-primitive.com or email pauleklund@aol.com

I for one am mostly stock, i've got a k&n filter and a borla muffler (for that deep rice tone). You want more pep, get a turbo. You want more handling, get some new struts, better tyres, and larger rims (to an extent).

welcome. we met at the palisades mall auto-x a few weeks ago. i've got the silver legacy gt. let me know if you want to meet up sometime and see/test out what's on my car.

companies like primitive, syms, cusco, prova, mine's, and zero make strut tower bars for our cars.

Could I interest you in a set of used H&R springs for the Legacy? I'm upgrading to coilovers. I will be selling them as soon as my coilovers are on.

The H&R springs lower the car a little (1.3" front and 1" in the rear). You can read more about them hereif you are interested: http://www.cobbtuning.com/legacy/sus...n-springs.html

The springs have a little over 10K miles on them and have been installed on the car for a little over a year.

If you are interested I could make sure I let you know when they go up for sale.

Thanks
Brad

Z-man,

Why not take a look at Whiteline ALK, swaybar end-links and an adjustable rear swaybar. Everyone seems to rave about them as a relatively cheap and effective upgrade.

Not handling related, but why not take a look at some steel brakelines, too - can help the middle pedal feel hugely. Natch, some pads will go another step - esp. nice when loaded up!

Cheers.

if you want a CHEAP susp upgrade, get an Outback wagon rear sway bar (18") from a junkyard. biggest bang for the buck.
