    I am looking to lift the subie 1.5-2" but my suspension is about ready to be replaced too. So I was wondering if there are any suspension options that are 1.5-2" over stock, instead of putting spacers. Thanks in advance!
  2. Offroad Fozzies
    Hi All! Been lurking the forum for a while doing some research and think I have a potential setup + path in mind to get my Forester off-road ready but would love some feedback given the wealth of knowledge here and to make sure I don't do anything unnecessary or stupid as this is my first go at...
  3. Suspension and Handling
    Just recently got a 2003 Forester XS and am looking to lower it by about 2-3 inches. I've seen posts about replacing the struts in it with stock struts from a WRX. I went on RockAuto and couldn't find a WRX model, only Impreza. I would imagine that the struts are the same but I'm a bit new to...

    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...

    Hi all, In January I bought a 2003 Forester XS. There was oil underneath it when I bought it. My gullible self believed the seller when he said it was just a loose oil filter. His dad was apparently a mechanic who had done the head gasket at 172k, the car was at 217k when I bought it. I'm...

    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...

    Hey guys 😊, just got my hands on a 2007 Forester x model & she needs some work. struts need replacement so I figured I’d lower it with some from a wrx. She also needs an exhaust and I was wondering if the Spec D wrx N1 would fit on it? Looking forward to your responses & I hope I can be of...

    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...

    Hi folks - first post here and fiance and i are new owners of a 2016 Forester 2.5i w/ 67k miles. Love the car but we've both (especially the fiance) started to notice the ride is quite a bit more bumpy than we're used to and driving some of us crazy :). It seems that every little bump, crease...

    Hello, my name is fox and I’m new to this forum. I have a 2007 Subaru Forester L.L. Bean. My rear shocks are original SLS shocks and I’m looking to replace them non-sls and also looking to do the work myself as getting them done anywhere is quite expensive. My question is can I replace the...
