Recommended shocks/tires for '99 Outback wagon?

S

So the wear bars are showing and the ride's getting a little bouncy.
Looks like it's time for new shoes and shocks. Current tires are
Michelin M+S, and I've gotten over 50K out of 'em, but they're mighty
noisy.

any help?

Try KYB for the struts. (maybe www.boxer4racing.com online or ?)
Among the better on-line tire resources is www.tirerack.com though a
local shop like Discount Tire can often match (or get close) to TR's prices.

Don't discount the possibility that worn tires are causing some
vibration. You did say 'bouncy' so likely the struts ARE worn if that is
indeed the symptom you feel.

Tires: Toyo Proxes TPT, very good for dry and wet driving, no snow in
FL. Make sure the alignment is properly done.

Good luck!

Thanks for the ideas, guys. Think I'm gonna go with the Yoko AVID for
now and see if the ride changes any. Have had these on my old SAAB for
the past 12 years and have been really happy with them as far as
noise, ride and handling go. Then I think I'll be better able to judge
the struts.
