So first modifications after much searching around and comparison of similar manufacture products.
I ALWAYs do Brakes and Suspension First! This is my third Forester. My two prior both made off road excursions. My 99s surprised many a jeep when I would be coming off of one of "their" trails. So plan was to lower the vehicle but no more than an inch so I could at least have as much ground clearance as the my 1st and 3rd Gen. Foresters. Body roll especially in the rear has always been a problem with the Foz so I knew I would be upgrading the rear sway bar. The also key thing since the 1st gen has been the brake master cylinder flex problem under hard braking so I wanted to address that fairly quickly. I'm usually fine with the stock mud guards but the SJ version are a total joke so I knew some Rally Armors where going to be needed as well as dumping the stock duelers....
Start off suspension mods:
20mm rear Subaru factory swaybar/bushings/mounts
Kartboy F+R swaybar mounts
Mann-Engineering SJ specific lowering springs. (worth every penny and work well with the stock dampers)
Cuscu front strut tower brace.
Perring steering lock out kit.
Proper professional alignment.
Cusco Brake master cylinder brace.
R1 Concepts premium front slotted rotors, New stock rears for now.
Hawk HPS pads F+R
Mann-Engineering Stainless steel brake lines
ATE RBF 200 complete brake system flush and replacement
Michelin Premier A/S 235/55/18 all four corners
