Cool GF just bought Legacy L Wagon.

Hi all,

MY GF just bought a silver 95 Legacy L wagon w/ 50k miles and perfect condition. What kind of things should we look at upgrading right off. The suspesnion seems very soft now (Compared to my RS w/ STi RA v.6), what is avalaible? (i ordered a 18mm rear bar already). I know the AGX's are avaliable, but what about a matched set like my STi's?

The dealership just did the timing belts and all the major tuneup stuff, but is there anything else we should look out for?

I might try and get her a new exhaust (quiet and low key ) and intake or Maybe just a pipercross drop in filter... MMMM.. new project...

Give me some ideas on this project guys. Keep in mind she won;t be auto-x'ing, this is a daily driver and the mods need to be affordable. The RS already sucked up the budget..

don't think there's a reasonably priced matched set of struts and springs for the legacy. most people seem to be using the ver. 5s or agx's and aftermarket springs like h&r, eibach, whiteline, or tein.

what about pulling the intake silencer from the fender? new tires or front brake pads? an aluminum shift knob?

I'll get my broken record out and suggest adding some good swaybar endlinks to tighten things up to get the best out of the rear bar. If load space is not a daily issue, a rear tower bar can help, too (when you need the full space, a few minutes to remove it is all it takes).

Good pads and rubber comes next. Some stiffening under the front end to locate the strut ends more securely will help with steering feedback, but NVH may suffer. ALKs are reccomended by many, but I have yet to install mine.

Cheers.(a former bg5 owner, too)
