I bought used JDM Bilstein struts which are for an 00-04 Lancaster (aka Outback). I am now selling the FRONTS ONLY. They didn't help me lower my 07 Outback as I wanted. I'm just curious if anyone with an older Baja or Outback might want to buy these. They are superior to KYB GR2's IMHO. They rode great, but actually raised the ride height on the 07 by ~ 0.5 inch.

I have replaced these with front Legacy Bilstein HD's, which give me the lower ride height I was looking for. I'm sorry, but am not going to sell the rear Bilsteins that match these Lancaster struts. I think you could use Legacy Bilstein rear shocks with some spacers or some GR2's to get the appropriate Outback ride height.

$200. FRONTS ONLY. These are inverted Bilstein Monotube dampers. Professionally done by someone in Japan who markets (or marketed) them (for BP9 version see Again, these work / ride great!!!

Upper spring perches & tophats are also available....the tophat bearings are reasonable but not new. FYI, they use standard USDM tophats and upper perches...They do not require JDM tophats like the Bilsteins for 05+ Legacy's.

Fixed to everyone's satisfaction???

Bump. I think they might fit 00-04 better, though they do bolt right up to 05-09. You would probably want a shorter (lower) spring for an 05+...unless you are trying to raise ride height. Zero real rust; just some surface coloration.

Come on! These are definitely usable. I think they might be perfect for 00-04 Outback or any 05-06 Baja. On 05-09 Outback, they might raise ride height unless countered with a "shorter" spring. Of course, some of you want to raise ride height. Again, they have KYB lowers from 00-02?? But were stuffed with true "made in Germany" inverted Bilstein monotube. Lowers don't affect performance, only providing the "geometry." Done professionally in Japan. I mounted / drove with them for awhile, felt they were a definite improvement over OB KYB, but didn't like ride height increase. Just speculating, but if someone wanted to put these on a Baja or 00-04 OB with 05-06 Baja springs, it might be a great combo.

BTW, the $200 includes paypal /shipment to lower 48.

Tophats gone, but struts and upper perches (for 00-04, or Baja, or Forrester) still available. The $200 includes shipping to lower 48, and perches, if you ask nicely :lol:

Shame it's not for all four, I need a full replacement set.
