Default 2001 Outback suspension setup in a 93 Legacy Wagon ?

Hi*

I might be able to pick up a full setup (Shocks, spriongs, topplates) from a 2001 Outback for cheap.

I need to change my suspension, but I am wondering if it would fit. I do think so, but just in case, anyone with experience ?

Thanks


JFD

93 Legacy Wagon
Non turbo, 5 speed

hmmm, the 3rd gens have a multilink susupension. I don't know much about it, but I don't believe the stuff is compatible.

1) Stiffer suspension
2) Higher clearance ?

well, if you wanna raise it up then go with some outback struts and springs. the outback gains it height from the longer struts.. they are about 2" longer that stock legacy struts, as well as taller springs.

there are also spacers between the body/crossmembers that give the OB more height.
