Default 99 legacy wagon suspension woes.....

I'm sick and tired of messing around with impreza stuff on my legacy.. after instaling my new GR-2's and pro-kits.. i end up with a raised front end and a really saggy butt end worse than when i was using stock wrx sedan springs.. i dont know what the hell is going on.. sooooo.. i need some legacy wagon springs, dont really care what i just need them soon.


ok, so the setup i "had" was....

02/03 wrx sedan struts
02/03 tein s-tech springs
Bent rear subframe. but the car looked like this..

sat fairly level.. and aside from the rear wheels being pushed to one side about an inch no issues.

So I decided to upgrade to this setup..

legacy GR-2's front/rear
02/03 wrx Eibach pro-kit springs
new subframe from a GC-8 and this is what i got....

front gap

Rear Gap

saggin hard core in the rear.. and i'm sure i got the right struts, KYB doesnt show a different model # for wagons vs sedans.

the eibach springs were taller than my S-techs but compressed way more when underload. grrrr.... so i lucked out and found a set of GT springs for $75 so unless someone local wants to swap straight accross i'll tearing my suspension apart again over the weekend. I like the Tein gap in the front, i just wanted to raise the back end up about an inch... sigh....
