I've been looking at a lot of old threads on these on other forums, but would like to know if anyone uses them here? Thoughts, on stock struts and aftermarket?

Also another question of bounce on lowering springs, wouldn't new struts fix that problem?

New struts would fix the problem until they blew again. If you can find some struts that are made for being that low then it would work. But those springs SLAM the car. This slut I once new had em on her RS coupe with stock struts and 17s with 40 series tires and they would rub when going over bumps or with one or more people in the back.

I'm actually dropping a 2001 Subaru Outback wagon, it rides to high and doesn't seem that stable at high speeds, I'm going to be using them with Koni Struts and shocks. I was told that it should drop the ride height around 1.5 inches all around.

On my 01 Subaru Outback, the front uses Struts and the Rear uses shocks, there is a difference between the two.

i can't believe that none of you fuckers that posted in here, that know i have the intrax mentioned me and or posted some pics...:) asshats.

gryffin, i've got agx and intrax on my 98L wagon. looks like so..






also, new struts will not fix the bounce. mine dont bounce unless i'm hobbling over speed bumps. i've got my AGX's at 2f/5r and it's stable as shit.

I have Intrax with gr2's and i don't get crazy bounce. I actually think the ride quality is way better than stock. I love the way my car handles. I've had this setup for over two years and have no problems. the drop is 2 inches all around but i love how it looks too.

Thanks guys for the replies, I feel a lot better about getting this setup, maybe the newer springs are a lot better.
