Hey! I recently became the owner of a very sexy, 2nd gen wagon. (I'll introduce myself in the right section in a bit.
) but for now--the previous owner had the bright idea of removing the spring coils on the vehicle, as if the struts (shock absorber part) wasn't already worn out enough. It bumps like crazy enough to where the seller's (owners' friend) kids dubbed it the Rollercoaster. Anyways, I read the suspension sticky and it doesnt really provide the information I seek, albeit it was very useful info that I may use later on. I've never really been good at searching forums for specific threads-- i had some luck but not a clear answer so I'm forced to make this post;
When searching for the front pair strut assembly for a '95 leg wagon, I can only ever come across the strut shock, and never the full assy that would include a spring coil. I can't seem to find spring coils for sale at all for the wagon. I'd love to just get a set off a junkyard car, but Juneau AK has no junkyards (which reallllllllly sucks). However, when searching for a strut assy. For the '98 model year legacy wagon, they come up like nothing. Why is that? Is there any difference amongst these parts that warrants this result? Or can I just buy the strut assy. For the '98 and directly install it onto my '95? Mind you my '95 has no ABS.
If thats unable to happen, is there any impreza set that I can buy? As of now I'm just trying to get it to run smoothly, and $1,000 coilovers are out of the question, unless you have a $300 front pair that is worth buying.
Thanks a bunch! I hope to be part of the Suby community.
