Default 99 legacy wagon strut tower brace?

Anyone know of any strut tower brace other than whiteline that fits a 99 legacy wagon? And if anyone here has the whiteline brand on their 99 legacy, do you like it? Thanks for any input!

theres probably a cusco one...I've got a cusco rear strut tower brace and a whiteline front tower brace...but these are both MY00-04 bars...

These mods didnt provide as much of a difference as the anti-sway bar...but supposidly they help a lot if you do coilovers or springs/struts etc. If you haven't done the sway bars, I'd suggest spend your money there first.

I've got a Cusco on my 98 Wagon and felt it noticeably improved front-end stiffness and eliminated some rattles. I know that sounds contradictory, but the car definitely felt, and still does 18 months later, more of one piece in the front. I have a Symms bar in the rear as well.

I have the aluminum Cusco front STB and the CF Cusco rear STB.

Been on the car a couple of years, look and work nice. The rear STB is a must for wagons.

I'd listen to fibuz on this one...
do you already have a RSB? If not, skip the tower bars and go for the RSB.
I did and love the result!

Excuse me, he has a wagon, a wagon could really use front and rear STB's before ANYTHING else.

I am VERY neutral with just this mod.

Decent tires are also a must, but that goes for ANY suby compared to the OEM tires.

I got one off ebay for my buddy's 98GT for about $30.00.
It was for an impreza, and in fit 100%, you just have to get one that is curved or it will hit the intake.

I would think it would but I have not tried it yet. I'm waiting untill I find one for a good price to try it. I will be trying to fit the GC8 rear lower brace to a Legacy and a SVX hopfuly next week.

The Cusco bar in my wagon was meant to fit the BF5 and SF5, which means the 1G Legacy and 1G Forester. Huge difference after install.
