I have a 97 what newer model parts are interchangeable? Can I put 00 struts and shocks on a 97
I've bugged the parts counter guy in the past. The '80s Ford Thunderbird body is based on the Fox Body, as is their Mustang. I asked the parts counter to pull one strut for each car and did a side by side comparison on the counter. The two were the same in all the critical bolt on areas but the Mustang GT had the internal valving that I wanted. The same thing would apply to the Subaru. If it bolts up the same then you know the differences lie in the internals.
I have a 98 Outback Wagon I need to unload. A year ago the head gasket blew and I decided to move on. Thought I would get around to fixing it since I liked everything about it < 5 speed stick and all wheel drive> but still not getting started so willing to sell to a nearby enthusiast. Live in DFW metroplex.
