  1. Suspension and Handling
    Just trying to get confirmation that King Springs and Swift Springs would fit my ‘02 JDM X20. My buddy that has an XT said that they most likely would but I’m not totally sure, just looking for a second opinion.
  2. Offroad Suspension
    Just ordered a set of King Springs (standard height) from Primitive. Says there could be as much as a 1/2" lift. Wanted to hear from others who are running this combo, what did you end up seeing? Also wonder if I should add some minimal spacers. I think the spring/strut combo should help...
  3. Suspension and Handling
    The time has come to replace the struts on my 2007 Forester X. I'm looking to maintain stock height or a very slight lift. I almost exclusively drive on highway and rough FSRs, much of it in winter to get to backcountry spots. What are my options in Canada? …I suppose I could also pick up in the...

    Swapping in JDM SG9 STI shocks and springs - would that be a quick and effective way to lower my 06 X and improve the ride and do they bolt straight up to the standard X suspension?
  5. Offroad Suspension
    I'm looking to do a 1" lift with upgraded springs and have no idea what kit to go with or if one is better than the other. I'm planning to install stiffer standard height springs to get rid of the saggy butt and put some gear in the back for camping with the possibility of doing some light...

  7. Suspension and Handling
    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...
  8. Suspension and Handling
    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. Offroad Fozzies
    Hi fozzy family! I have a 2016 2.5i and I am looking to get some wheel spacers to get my tires to stick out more and I was wondering how much I can put on without having to change the lug nuts? Also I was wondering if anyone has had problems with wheel spacers on more of an off road set up...
  10. Australia / New Zealand
    Does anyone know if it's possible to get Forester spec Swifts form a stockist in OZ? The only way seems to be to get them sent from the States and I don't really want to do that at the moment with everything that's going on. Any solutions/leads would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  11. Lighting and Electrical
    I'm currently on Tein lowering springs, so about 30mm drop from stock. It seems like the lights are lower than usual. At night, I feel that the distance of the light is shorter compared to before. Do I need to adjust them or it's all in my mind? I Don't want to just adjust them right away (I...
  12. Suspension and Handling
    I'm planning to get a Tein H-Tech for my SJ paired with stock strut. any thoughts on this combo? is it good for daily driving? and how is the ride quality? any suggestions would be appreciated even with different lowering springs.
  13. Suspension and Handling
    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 /...
  14. Suspension and Handling
    Hey guys! I'm thinking of lowering my SH XT by dropping in some WRX springs, but I'm worried about the payload capacity after the swap. I like to go camping which often means I'm loading the back up with loads of gear and people. On the Forester springs I'm usually sagging a bit (could partly...
