Default bushing kit

just wondering if anyone knows a company that I can buy from that sell a full bushing kit for a 98 legacy GT. I've seached some on the internet and all I find is for WRX's and STI's. I just wish it was easy finding parts for a later year model legacy. They have plenty for 2005 and 2006. Thanks for the help. Later.

I think Whiteline (Australia) does a full suspension bushing kit, as well as end-links and Anti-sway bar bushings and a set of bushings for the steering rack. How much money are you planning on spending ?

I"m looking for a company that sells all the bushing for the Legacy. Oh by the way I looked at Whiteline and they sell old school WRX and STI stuff and something for a Subaru liberty. Is that what they call a Legacy in Aus.? That's the only three things I could find at whiteline. I would really like to have all Whitleline products cause I've already have the whiteline 3 way adjustable rear swaybar and end links to match. You know keep'n it in the familiy so to speak. Thanks for the help though guys. Later.

Aaron.

Call a Whiteline vendor, I bet you Whiteline makes it; most just don't list every Whiteline product on their websites.

Yes, the Liberty is the OZ version of the Legacy. Everything will swap over as long as the model years are the same. As far as bushings, I'd suggest either Whiteline or Kartboy, like everyone else has said. Call up www.boxer4racing.com and see if they can get the full set in. That's where I got all my whiteline parts.

sweet Jon. Which do they sell Whiteline or Kartboy. All I found on that web stie for kartboy was bushing for the short throw and endlinks. I didn't find anything for the chassie. Oh and Jon. Can you give me some info on how I'd order from them. I see the order form thing at the top of the screen but how did you pay for your stuff? What kind of front strut bar will I need to get. I got the wrong one last time even though it said it would work on wrx and legacys. It was made for the fact that there was a TMIC I need the one for just the 2.5 nonturbo. Know what I mean?

For boxer4racing.com, call them up. I've ordered stuff from them before and found the website as useless as you did - better to call them and they seem really knowledgable and will get you the right thing, from my experience.

Unfortunatley I didn't have the same experience. I ordered superpro control arm bushings from them for my legacy and they sent me stuff for a wrx that did not fit. I think that since alot of the rear suspension bushings are the same between the models they assumed the fronts interchange as well. I would double check the part numbers against the manufacturers website for fitment before you buy. Subydude.com also carries superpro bushings, were very helpful and double checked fitment for me.

B4R sells both, but I'd recommend the Whiteline bits. Call them up, and order over the phone. As fars a strut bar goes, don't waste your money. You won't see a performance difference. Unless you're going to be tracking this thing, you don't need coilovers. Here's what I'd suggest for your car.

KYB AGX adjustable shocks
some sort of good progressive spring that won't kill you during daily driving. I'd suggest iON performance.
rear sway bar
anti-lift kit
sticky tires.

That's really all ya need, man.

Yo, call Tom at Kartboy. He will sell you all the correct bits.
