Question KYB AGX and H&R Springs

Will this setup give me an level or close to level looking stance? I would really like the front to have the same tire to fender distance as the rear. I realize the front fenders have a larger arch, but I'm sure someone knows the right combination to making it look the same. Thanks for any help. Also, if I go with the AGX's, which I plan on, I've been searching the forum and I see to order 9x-01 Impreza AGX's, do I need to change any parts on my car to accustom these?

i just put agx's on with my eibach's and the car actually sits higher than it did before with the stock struts due to the spring seat heights. i will try and get some pics for you tomorrow. the car does not sit very low and has a nice, stiff ride. if you have not ordered the springs yet, would you consider ordering some whitelines and trading me for the eibach's? i love the springs but i want the car to sit a little lower.

we install H&R and KYB on my bosses Legacy and it looks awesome. Sorry no pics. It is very level, however the front fender gap is bigger than the rear.

I will be installing H&R's on my legacy Sunday, I'll let you know how it looks. Just slapped the WRX wheels on, looks awesome. It should make my car level because mine is FWD and isnt as heavy in the rear, so it wont lower it the full 1 inch. We'll see, I'll be sure to have pictures up as soon as my bumper gets back on.

Peace
Josh

Most of the pics of all the combos I have seen have the front still higher than the rear, I would suggest Ground Controls. The GC8 kit will work on our cars. Combine those and some AGX's and your Legacy will have a setup second to only Teins, cusco, JIC.

Sorry don't have the H&R's but this is the Eibach Pro Kit Drop and the AGX's.

what i meant was that the eibach's lowered the car farther than they advertised (1.7 or so inches) and the kyb's brought the car a little higher, but still significantly lower than stock. the h&r's will lower the car nicely and evenly with the kyb's but if you want the car really low, it probably won't satisfy you. the ground controls for the gc8 probably won't have a high enough spring rate for the legacy. the eibach/kyb setup lowers the car a little over an inch all around. if you can afford it get coilovers.

With the KYB AGX's you want to make sure you do not lower them a lot since they are really designed to run close to stock height. I have heard of some problems when using them in combo with springs that lower more than an inch.
