help me lower the rear

Post by Bigbird1971 »

ok, So I've tried to read as much as I can on this.
I have a 1990 Wagon, AWD.
When I replaced the struts with KYBs about 2 years ago, I didn't want the lifted front look people were getting. I ordered 90-91 front struts and 92-94 rear struts.
The issue is now my rear is too high by 1-1.5".
I want to drop it a little in the rear to match.
From what I can tell I have 3 options.
A. get 92-94 springs and top hats
B. use some MY00 2.5RS rear springs I have at home + 92-94 legacy rear top hats, or 93-03 Impreza rear top hats
C. get 04-07 Impreza (WRX or STI) rear springs and keep everything else I currently have.

As far as option C goes, how much lower will the WRX or STI springs make the car?
