Post Legacy-Impreza Compatibility

There has been some chat within the suspension threads recently about Legacy and Impreza compatibility of struts...at least for later model Legacy's

I noticed when I purchased my KYB GR-2's a couple months back, the struts (for 93-94 Leg.) shared the same part number with the Impreza units. Anybody want to confirm if current suspension packages (KYB, Tein, Bilstein, LEDA struts with Eibach, Groundcontrol, H&R springs) designed for the Impreza will work for an earlier model Legacy (granted I chose an appropriate spring rate)?

Also, I'm assuming an RS tranny would drop right in should and when my current transmission goes...correct? Or should I then consider a new car....(RS)?

we've touched on the suspension topic before...
for sure.. the KYB/AGX part #s for the impreza/legacy are the same... same... same... so i imagine MOST (key word) of the suspension parts are compatible. you will find a lot of the part numbers are the same.

both of the later model cars have the same 2.5 engine...

I guess I am going nuts...I interpreted the last compatibility conversation between the Impreza and the 95-99 Legacy...I unfortunately have a 94 Legacy and the struts from later model Leg's are not compatible. Right? Or are the different part numbers claimed by KYB actually referring to the same part?

Regardless of the 2.5L shared between the Impreza and the later model Legacy's, I am going to assume from your statement that any Impreza tranny will bolt right into a 94 Legacy...

(I'm playing dumb here because it has been a pain in the butt to find anything for this MY let alone anyone who knows the right info...)

ok... well...

if you want KYB's.. i can get you the part #'s... the #'s for the Impreza should be the ones you want... i called KYB myself and talked to their techs and have them installed on my car right now so i know they work!!!


as for the engine... i am not for certain that it WILL indeed fit in a 94 - but 97-00 are swappable... someone will have the answer for you though... i don't want to mis lead you...

Thanks...all's good.
BTW, I know the engine will match up without a problem, but I'm wondering about the tranny mounts...

Somebody...anybody...(sigh)
