Parts from other models/years that fit our 5th gen.
 
I've stumbled across a couple posts saying they had success installing parts onto a 5th gen that are labeled for other Subaru models. I was hoping there was a FAQ on this but I can't find it if it even exists.

I read that someone was able to fit a swaybar from a wrx, a trunk lip/spoiler designed for another model that fit perfectly, etc...

Does anyone know what other parts will fit a 5th gen Legacy even if they are marketed to work on another year/model subaru?

So does this mean a wrx is as wide as a legacy?

Who knows the suspension components that will work? Was it the 08 WRX coilovers that worked but they just needed a diff top hat?

Thanks

If anybody has info on springs let me know... want to drop it an inch but can't afford the $1,000.00 coil overs... way out of my budget... .

I also want springs but i want to drop my car at least 2 1/2 inches. I know ill have to modify a bunch of other things but i want my car to be "low". Im just going to wait until they have parts that actually fit our cars. I think H&R have springs for our car if im not mistaken.

Here's a post stating that exhausts are interchangeable between a few other models as well... http://legacygt.com/forums/../images/smilies/smile.gif:)

But do some research cause AVO stated their Axle Back Exhaust for our LGT will fit Several other Subaru Models. You might be able to get a different Companys Exhaust and spend less $$$... THe AVO is like $700.00 bucks alone... If you can grab something for $300.00 you can get your Fogs Too...

Impreza WRX 4-door: 2008+ [2.5-liter turbocharged]
Impreza 2.5i 4-door: 2008+ [2.5-liter naturally aspirated]
Forester 2.5XT: 2009+ [2.5-liter turbocharged]
Forester 2.5X: 2009+ [2.5-liter naturally aspirated]
Legacy GT Sedan: 2010+ [2.5 Turbocharged]

I had confirmation from AVO in an email stating that they do fit other models... See below...



This is correct, it's the same part and fitment between the 2010 Legacy Sedan and the 2008+ Impreza Sedan models.

To Whom it may concern,

I noticed on your product page that this item fits several different model Subarus.
I would like to confirm this as I currently have this part#2C07K3HA002 on a 2008 WRX and will be moving it to a 2010 Legacy GT.

Thanks,

Phil

I bought an 09 WRX rear sway for my 2.5i impreza before I totaled it. Would this be a worthwhile swap for the legacy one?

I wonder why fram and purolator all have different part numbers from previous generations and the 2010. I am coming up on 6k miles and would like to change my air filter out.

We'll see how long before these actually hit the market. They've had them listed since January (or earlier), but everytime I call them, they tell me it'll be a good 6-8 weeks. A couple months go by and I call again, only to get the same response.
