need help geting the right struts.
I just got my 2002 legacy back from the subaru dealership and the rear camber is way negative. thay told me it was cause some one before i owned it had installed wagon struts in the rear only. and that putting the right ones in would fix this.
They checked all the bushings, links, arms and sub frame and saw no problems with them. I also did my own inspection and found nothing wrong there.
the driver side rear is at -2.5 and the passenger rear is at -2.6.

so my question is this. I have looked up on different sits struts for my ride but none of them specific if they are for a wagon or sedan.

these are the ones I'm thinking of getting, but are they right?

use the search tool, this topic has been discussed several of times

thanks for the suggestion, but when search this forum for strut topics almost all of them talk about upgrading the springs or a swap.
Am I searching for the wrong key words? :confused:
I would just like some help to know if this struts I'v picked are going to be correct. the site dos not list what body codes its for, just that it fits the European models.

I talked to the site people and they just said that all the info thay have is listed with the part.

KYB would be the OEM direct fit.
