Post What Springs Do I Need To Get To Keep My Ride At Stock Height?

I currently have Ver. 5 Struts and H&R springs. I love the stiffness of the ride but this configuration lowers the car more than my liking. So I decided to buy a set of Ver 5 springs. Everyone was telling me that these springs have the same stiffness of the H&R but don't really lower the car. Well I got the ver 5 Springs and measured them and they are the same length as my H&Rs and they look thinner which would cause them to be a softer spring.

What I want to know is what springs have you used to stiffen your ride and not really lower it?

Someone had mentioned using coilover springs and adapting them to work with my ver 5 struts. Has anyone else done this?

Thanks
Brad

I think that Whiteline has about the least drop (3/4") that you're going to find out there. Coilovers obviously allow you to control your exact drop, but they're expensive.

Whiteline makes a stock height, ~20-25% stiffer springset for Legacys.

Straight from the horse's mouth (Whiteline):

Re coils.
Yes, we do have coils for the Legacy Wagon.
All our coils are about 25-30% stiffer than the original springs.

approx 1 1/2" Lower coils
Front 70357
Rear 70373

Standard height.
Front 70367
Rear 70385

Hope that helps,
Doug

Thanks a million guys. I will research the whitelines. It sounds like that is the overwhelming choice. . I think the stock height ones will be my choice.

Where is the best place to purchase a set of these and what is a good price?

Thanks
Brad
