    Trying to lower my new forester 2 inch or so thought i was close with these br racing coilovers - 14-18 Subaru Forester that way it stiffens the ride as well but not sure what spring rate to get seeing as it will get lowered. Will that be a factor when choosing spring rate ,any help welcome.

    I just changed out my stock struts for a set of coilovers specifically for the 2002 JDM forester. As usual I took it for a little drive after installing the coilovers to see if everything was good, and I found that the rear suspension makes a fairly loud clunking sound on both sides whenever I...

    Are Godspeed mono SS coilovers any good? For almost 700 I would want to make sure before I buy them

    Just got some BC BR racing coilovers for my 2005 XT.... (6/5kg/mm) Fitting them tomorrow, but how much lower than stock height would you (or have you) set your coilovers to?! This is stock: 1 inch lower?.... 2 inches?.... I still wanna be able to go over humps at "normal" speed ;)😂 Let me...

    Just bought a 160k mile, blue, Forester L with a 5 speed for $2,500 as my daily. I'd like to lower it, do some exhaust work, and put some wheels on it, all on a relatively low budget. First, I would like to lower it, so I'm going to tackle that first. My budget is $500. I would like to lower it...

    SJ 2.5I and XT are the struts and springs swappable. From understanding the differences are 2.5bis a rubber mount and the the XT is a pillow mount and XT has a higher spring rate. The reason I ask I'm thinking about swapping to a coilover setup so I can add wider tires but the coilovers I've...

    Hey all, very recently upgraded to an 08 WRB EJ205 Fozzy that is on Racelands. I had a 6 hour drive home so I spent hours in my buddies driveway trying to adjust the coilovers to be higher but no matter what I couldn't get it to raise the car (Factory Raceland springs). So I decided to try and...
  9. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello all, This past week I installed coilovers and new calipers/pads/rotors all around. The coils are Megan Racing wrx wagon coils and I removed the sub frame spacers to fix the suspension geometry. I don't believe this to be the problem but I fell that its necessary to mention as I did not...

    So, how interchangeable are Subaru's varying car models and their parts within a corresponding year? I have a 2010 forester that I am looking to lower a bit but Id like to stay with Subaru parts for consistency. Can I just swap some 2010 WRX struts for my current struts? If so, what issues will...

    Hello, I got a 2015 FXT. So far I have installed CUSCO Front Strut Tower Bar (PT# 697 540 A). Now I plan to lower the Forester with Coils so that I can raise it back up if the time calls for it. But as far as this topic goes I got a question about Sway bars. I been considering doing 100% of...

    Hello everyone! I currently have my 2006 FXT lowered on a full set of 2002 WRX Stock Struts and Springs. One of the struts has gone bad, and being that this car is my winter daily, I don't want to go crazy with sinking a lot of money into it. That being said, I have a buddy who has an almost...

    I'm planning to lower my ride. I'm having a constant dilemma whether I will buy a set of coilovers vs. lowering spring w/ stock strut combo. I've read a lot of reviews regarding them but still choosing between those two. I wanted the ride to be as comfortable as stock or even better. Inputs /...
