Default Re: Looking for performance struts for the 97 Outback

Also won't it lower my car?
Hey rallysquirrel,

Here is the deal on Outbacks. There are no aftermarket struts that will clear the stock 205/70-15 tires. Any currently available strut (other than stock replacements) will also lower the car about an inch. You can keep your wheels and switch to something like 205/60-15 tires (about the same size as Legacy Gt 16" tires). In theory these will make your speedo read fast, but I am currently running Impreza RS 16" wheels and tires and I have not noticed anything. I suspect that Subaru didn't do anything to correct the speedo on Outbacks.
