1991 Legacy wagon
silver (sorta)

Default Are 90-91 Legacy air struts different form 92-94?

I picked up a used air strut for my 91 Legacy wagon from a local wrecking yard that specilizes in Subarus. The trouble is it isn't the same as the one on my car. The rigid portion below the half shield is 2 to 3 inches longer then the one on my 91. Also the air line on my car enters through the top of the strut mount while the replacement one is bundled with the electical connectors and enters through the side. The "motor" on the top also appears different , mine being larger in diameter and completely round while the replacement has a smaller diameter and a protusion on the side.The reciept says it's from a 93 and the guy at the yard says he has never heard of a difference between them. He says I should just go ahead and install it but I don't see how.

Anyone know anything about the differences and what years are compatible with a 91?

I read your post, but don't have an answer.
