Default 04 WRX springs fit 90-91 Legacies

This has been discussed for a bit, but now it can be confirmed. 04+ WRX springs (which are tapered in the rear) will fit 90-91 Legacies (which are also tapered in the rear).

Here's what she looked like right after the wheel bearing project. Up in the air!!!


The WRX springs are on the left, originals on the right:

The WRX springs on the right, originals on the left:


Here's what she looked like after the springs, MUCH better:


And just today with the XT6 wheels and Yoko Avid H4's:


Here are the corresponding part numbers:

The springs themselves (04 WRX)
20330FE861 for the fronts
20380FE830 left rear
20380FE820 right rear

Front top hats (04 WRX)-
20323FA000

Front upper rubber spring seats (04 WRX)-
20325AA000

The numbers following this are not confirmed to be NECESSARY, but I got them anyway.

Front washers (04 WRX)-
20326AA000

Rear lower rubber spring seats (04 WRX)-
20375FC001

Rear upper rubber spring seats (91 Legacy)-
20375AA011

The car handles 150% better. Crisper turn-in, less body roll, more grip. The ride is somewhat stiff, but bearable. I highly recommend it!!

username skycop has a set of 03 wrx spring with 20k miles on them he was trying to give awawy, but hes not willing to ship i guess. if anyone wants them for this swap, PM him maybe he's cchanged him mind.
if he's still not willing to ship PM me and maybe we can work something out where i'd ship them for you (he's kinda local to me) provided my costs are covered.

By the way, here's the list prices for those parts:
20330FE861 $75.73 apiece
20380FE830 $75.73
20380FE820 $75.73
20323FA000 $13.68 apiece
20325AA001 $13.68 apiece
20326AA000 $3.87 apiece
20375FC001 $7.97 apiece
20375AA011 $13.68 apiece

02-03 springs might work on 92-94 Legacies, I can't confirm that. They will NOT work on 90-91 Legacies though, because the rear springs on 90-91's are tapered. The 04 WRX springs are too, that's why they work.

They don't fit, not without having to do some modding to the tophats and also the camber bolts.
There have been people saying that it's tough to align the car after installing them because of the negative camber it creates.

that should do it, the camber can be fixed with a camber bolt kit from napa.
