This is after adjusting the rear perch height: lengthened one notch: ~ 10mm. raised rear just a bit.

Rides a bit firmer in back, but still eats speedbumps. Looks better, although if looks alone were the goal, I might have left the rears where they were, and figured out how to drop the front to match.

In picture of shocks: shortest is stock Legacy wagon, longest os 04 KYB with OBXT, and mid is Bilstein with LGT wagon set at middle setting (3rd of 5), up one 10mm notch from before.

Looks pretty normal...almost stock. But rides (and handles) soooo much better. Much better ride than I had with KYB's as well. Remember, I never load this thing up, so you pack rats may have different tastes. And roads here are aggravating; or maybe I'm just getting old enough to appreciate a Buick...naw

Sorry to steal someone else's pic's, but here is stock...I can tell a difference:
