I found this explanation of the Stablex design and how it improves the ride of the 2016 Legacy Limited. So, I guess this suspension system has been around a while. But, like you, I haven't figured out who makes it.
"The Legacy’s refined MacPherson front strut suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension ensure an excellent balance of handling agility and ride comfort. The Limited trims exclusively feature Stablex suspension, which employs larger front struts along with front and rear damping tuned for improved low-speed handling performance and enhanced ride comfort at higher speeds. An aluminum hood reduces weight over the front wheels, which helps enhance steering response. The Legacy 2.5i is equipped with standard 17-inch wheels, and the Limited trims feature 18-inch alloy wheels."
I'll keep looking! You piqued my curiosity on this one!
