    Hi. New to this forum and Subaru's in general. I was given a 2000 wagon in really good running order and general shape. The problem is I'm an older man w/bad knees and the car is a bit low for me to enter/exit. Kid in a WRX suggested different struts/springs to raise the car a little. Can anyone tell me what struts will do this? Even gaining a couple of inches would help.

    Be careful spring rate can affect tide quality. Adjustable struts are the way to go but be careful
    to lube threads on strut so the don.t get seized up . The length of the spring affects the height
    of the car . Contact you supplier and ask about struts and what different spring height and rates
    are available with the strut . Talk to a recommended dealer !
