  1. Suspension and Handling
    Hi, Just fitted some 2015+ VA STI/WRX ('18 STI in this case) control arms to my MY09 SH Forester XT and want ed to do a lengthy boring write-up for anyone that wants to follow. The short version: Why: Because my old bushes were stuffed and for the price of the bushes I could get a pair of arms...
  2. Suspension and Handling
    I know there is a lot of information on this forum going over this but I haven't seen many photos or walkthrough of exactly how to fit these STi control arms on an SJ Forester so I winged it and took some photos along the way. This was done on a 2015 Forester XT. I bought these 2016 STi lower...
  3. Brakes
    wondering if anyone on here has done the 2018 sti 6 piston front brembos on their 2014+ forester? i found one person who has done them and what i took away is that they bolt right up with no adapter and you ust need the dual drilled rotors for the 2018+ sti from dba or faction fab etc, and to...
  4. Suspension and Handling
    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. Lighting and Electrical
    Trying to understand how the SG9 facelift HID leveling system works with a view to swapping it into my X. I've seen posts referring to leveling components on the suspension, small leveling motors for the lights and also a dash switch with 5 manual settings on it. Wondering then is the system...
  6. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Hello all, first post here. I recently bought a 2009 Forester XT from a dealership and about three weeks after owning it the turbo went, taking the cats out with it. The 3rd party warranty from the dealer covers the turbo replacement, but not the cats. I have found a used STI exhaust of the same...

    Re MY06, do XS & XT headlights fit properly with an STi front bumper? What about STi headlights, do they fit properly with an XS or XT fog light front bumper? Also do XT headlights fit XS bumpers, and vice versa? Any tips or insights will be appreciated👍🏻
  8. Suspension and Handling
    hey fellow forester owners, I've found a good condition set of complete 2002 wrx sti wagon struts and was considering buying them to use to lower my 2004 forester x. they are the wagon ones so i shouldnt need saggy butt spacers? will these struts bolt directly in or will i have to change the...
  9. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Hey everyone, I recently bought a JDM Version 7 STi TMIC. I know theres a thread that’s supposed to have all my answers but I already looked every page over. After trying to install the intercooler I was successful but not happy. The driver side bracket was off by a .25” to .5” and it was...
  10. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Weird unique case here: I have a 2006 Forester XT, that has a a 2018 STI EJ257 engine swapped into it - yes, you heard that right... I am trying to find the best fit/largest splitter that will provide the most airflow to the stock 2018 TMIC. The 2018 TMIC is a fair bit larger compared to the...

    Hi All, I have been looking for a replacement front bumper for my 2007 XT as it has an STI bumper right now damaged I am looking for another one. Anyone have any suggestions on what websites either worldwide or in Australia where I can buy one of these STI style front bumpers or any other front...
  13. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Hey everybody, I have a question that maybe someone can answer. Why don't STi TMIC mount on the passenger side for our Foresters? The part numbers for the brackets are the exact same for the WRX and STi. So why don't they actually mount to the bracket if they're the same part. Is there...

  18. Engine and Exhaust
    Hi Subros, I am new to the Forester modification world. I have a 2015 Forester XT and planning on doing some mods. I want to upgrade the catback and want to know if a wrx exhaust of the similar year is an exact swap. Also, what WRX/STI parts fit in this year model. All input is appreciated and...

    Ok, is there anyway the sway bar in these pics is from an 04 STI? The "C" endlinks say to me that it's from a WRX and being 20mm of the 02/03 era. Is there anyway this could be an 04 STi but somehow with different end links. I've just purchased this thinking it was an STi for my 06 Forester XT...
