    I am planning on building an overlanding setup in the back of my forester, and with all the extra added weight I am thinking that I may need to upgrade the suspension. Does anyone have any good suggestions for good but budget suspension for a 2004?
  2. Steering, Suspension and Handling
    Hello all, I’m new to this group so thank you for taking the time to read and post a response. Its that unfortunate time where my OEM struts, upper mounts, and lower control arms are on their last legs. It was crazy to see how much parts were from the dealership so I figured I’d finally look...

    Recently dropped my forester with the WRX Strut + Spring combo but it isn't low enough for my taste. Has anyone changed out the WRX springs for a set of aftermarket ones? If so, what spring would be the best and would there be any rubbing/bottoming out problems?

I’ve seen lots of things saying 04-07 Impreza wagon is a direct bolt on but I’ve also seen things saying it doesn’t fit or the top hat is different. Does anyone know if the 04-07...

    Hello, I have a 2006 red Forester X (2 l) on which I'm looking to do some work. A paintjob is coming up, but in the future I'd like to swap it to a turbo, maybe add some lowered wrx shocks and do a manual swap (I'm aware it could take a lot of time/money). As far as I've seen here, everyone...
