    Hello everyone! I own a 1999 Legacy OB with 248k miles on it. It has driven strong and well for the 6 months that I’ve owned it so far and I’ve been keeping up with regular maintance. I just had someone replace my worn out OEM struts and springs with 2008 Forester struts and springs. The car...

    Hey all... I have a 2006 Outback 6 cyl. 93k miles. I am the original owner. Other than routine maintenance (oil, brakes, tires) I haven't done much (though wheel bearings were replaced about 20k ago). As my daughter is nearing driving age, I'm thinking of giving it a once-over. A few things...

    Hi, I have a 2009 outback with rally springs from king springs and a 1" rear strut spacer. Loved the way the car handled when I first installed it, but after a few thousand miles of daily use on dirt roads and atv tracks the dampening power of the struts is nonexistent. It has become a very...

    Hello, First-time poster, I've been hoovering here quite a lot for advice. Alaskan roads are rough on struts, and I need to replace the struts on my Legacy Wagon 98. 7 years ago, I did a coil-over when replacing the rear struts.
