14 SJ Forester BC Racing Suspension / BR Type

Hey guys my friends at Ravspec Raceworks in Deer Park, NY.
Got me a set for the 2014 Forester.

They are BR Type with 6k springs front and back. I'm going to update this thread on how they run.

I am also local to Queens/Long Island NY if anyone is interested in sitting in the car to see how ride comfort is.





I'm not sure how groupbuy works on here, but I will also be trying to setup one with everyone. For now I'm going probably have the car install next week to the week after, depending on my damage on the front end by a hit and run cab.

Group buys are not permitted through non-supporting vendors.
In this case Rav-Spec would require vendor status on sf.org

Okay Thanks for the information. Am I allowed to leave the contact info from ravspec? if people would like to contact them. If not I will remove the information.

You are welcome to leave their contact information just as long as it isn't in solicitation for a group buy.

so there is about 6 inches on the coil and the rear strut is about 22 inches
front is about 17 inches from the gold plate to the end

I will compare stock once they are out.

Thanks I'm hoping I can help shed some light. My friends and I are going to see how low it goes and see what is a suitable height from experience.

They also told me 6k should be pretty good if the valving of the coils are right.

After watching some videos from Foresterlive I kind of want to see how durable the stock suspension is.

Sweet! H&R is suppose to get back to me in October about fitting my car (as the test car). I doubt they will do coilovers but if they do it would be sweet.

No. But maybe we will find out before the end of the year.
