Default Quick suspension question

I was lucky enough to come across some sprints and struts from a 2.5RS Here is my question will these fit a 99 legacy? Because what I would like to do is get a set of stiffer springs and just be able to swap back and forth. I know it is more then a 20 min job but at least I would not have to pull each strut apart???

cool13b - the struts will work, springs in the rear will work, however the fronts won't work. You'll notice w/ the RS springs your ride will be MUCH softer.

Since you want to swap back and forth, just get a set of AGX's and STi front upper mounts + OE rear mounts with a set of H&R's or Eibachs and you'll be fine.

Sean, if you can find out some info as to what the spring rates and damping ratio that would be helpful.

Physically they will bolt in, however IMO you're wasting your money/time trying to swap back and forth. it's more then a 20 minute job, and you'd need an alignment every time you swap stuff.......not the best approach.

Are you looking for something stiffer on the track/auto-x and normal ride during the daily commute?
