1998 Legacy GT Wagon
Rear Strut Tower Bar Install
Just did the front CUSCO strut bar on my 98GT Wgn. I did 12ftlbs on all the
strut tower bolts. However, I took the strut tower bracket to the bar
bolt to about 25ftlbs...Tightened until the bar alone did not shake.
What do you guys think of that, is it O.K.? Drove it around the block
and did not really feel the difference....may be imagining if I did.
Probably be able to feel it on faster turns and freeway antics. But good
in a way cus that means that the legacy chassis is stiff enough to begin
Now the rear CUSCO bar is kind of tricky. I believe I need to cut into the
interior liner . Is this how it is supposed to be done? Also how should
the bar go on? I've narrowed it down to a few possibilities...but dont
want to cut the liner until I'm sure of the bars orientation. I know
there is a sticker on the bracket that I believe supposed to be pointing
to the front. But, there are 2 ways to make it point to the front. Also,
I figure that the strut mount surface of the bracket should be the
Thanks in Advance.

gee, ididn't know anyone made a rear tower bar for the Legacy. I'd be more interested in that than the front one. Does it cut-into your cargo area/pass through? I guess w/ a wagon that'd be kind of a bummer.

Cobb has them and i'm sure a few other places can get them.
This is the one i'd be really interested in as well, seeing as the Wagon is missing the rear deck and any support behind the rear seats.
