Default a new spin on uber worn out question

are there ANY springs that DO NOT make the ass of a legacy wagon sag?

H&R does
Eibach does...

king springs.

Huffer has a good link for them...they're stiffer than stock at stock ride height, and they offer sedan and wagon springs.

The only catch is that they have to be shipped from Auzzieland, although the price difference somewhat makes up for that (American dollar > Australian Dollar)

Whitelines are the only ones I know of that make springs specifically for the wagon. Good luck getting 'em in tho. I started the project in January and come March I decided to give up (Also decided I didn't want to invest the $250 in it).

David, the Whiteline springs are going to be the way to go. Unfortunately,
neither set that is offered for your car is available. I can special order
a set in, but it could take up to 3 months to get via sea freight. If we
have them shipped via air, the shipping is going to be fairly expensive
(typically $100-$150 additional).

Thank you for your request.

So none of these springs mentioned cause sagging issues in the rear of the sedans?

It could be that the fenders are cut differently too. Has anyone measured the car to see if it's actually lower on a wagon? I can't imagine that a wagon is THAT much heavier.

well, my wagon does give the illusion that it sags, but I don't believe the fenders are actually cut different from the sedan. When we talk about sag, we're talking about major sag from using springs not rated for the extra weight of a wagon.

also the weight distrbution is different with the wagon, due to its length. i fixed my issues with a combo of wrx s-techs up front and stock wrx wagon springs in the rear.

How's the handling on that set up? Does it cause tremendous understear or are the front springs pretty close to the stiffness in the rear?

well, the giant rear sway helps with the understeer... and the stiffer front springs help.. I wish the rear springs were a little stiffer, but I cranked up the sway bar another notch and that helped with the softer rear springs.. and the GR-2's are stiffer than stock so again it helps. but over all I like the ride height a lot! i wish i could get ahold of some legacy GT wagon springs to compare. no you can get this spring setup for $100 so its hella cheap. you can get used s-techs for $50 and stock wrx wagon springs for about the same.. or a set of legacy GT springs for $180.
