Post GAB Suspension

I wanted to get the GAB Super HP. So who sells GAB? If not GAB then what do you recommend for shocks and springs for the legacy.

Cool

I am buying the Eibach springs from a member and ordering the KYB / AGX struts. I don't know about the GAB though.

Wings Corp USA is GAB's distributor I believe( WINGSGAB@aol.com ). They e-mailed me back last night to let me know the only struts they have for my 91 are $268 a piece. He did not mention which ones they were though. Also I think the 90 and 91 Legacys used different struts then the 92-94s, for instance, supposedly KYB doesn't make AGXs for the early Legacys, just the GR2s , and Eibach does not make springs for the early ones either, so maybe GAB offers more choices for you newer guys. Oh well, anything has got to be an improvement over my stock struts with 115,000 miles on them

For all of you in the suspension search I have a little info for you. All Legacy's share the same strut design. My '98 GT has KONI inserts from a '90 Legacy. All Legacy struts are the same!!
Now with the springs there's a little debate. In '93 Subaru changed the spring design in the rear. The early design went from a tapper spring to one that was more to a cylinder shape. ( / \ too I I )
I do believe that you can take the rear upper perches from a '93 Legacy (same body style) and use thes to install later model springs. -Sorry for the long post-

Timely topic on the struts as I have 130,956 on my OEM units! I will probably go the AGX/Eibach route just for the adjustment factor.

Hey Submerk, what is this "Turbo Legacy Club" all about?
