Default 2008 Sti springs in a 2011 legacy gt

Hi,

I am thinking of upgrading my regular guys springs in my 08 sti to something a little lower. I have already swapped by stock sti strut and spring into the rear of my 11 legacy and it seems to lower it a bit and did not really feel all that much stiffer. Are the fronts interchangeable as well? Would sti stuff i the front of the legacy raise or lower it?

Thanks for any feedback

i would think the spring should work and would be lower as well...just measure the perch vs the sti spring diameter to verify...

^^ What he said ^^

I just tried to do '11 LGT springs and struts on my Outback and noticed the front top seats are different sizes than mine (I know LGT and my car are different weights and that the springs might not have a stiff enough rate). It might be worth looking into. Now I have to source the smaller top seats.
