2018 2.5i Manual
Are the mounts different on these or just the bushing. I think I am going to try out an STI rear bar on my 2010 XT and want to know if I need new mounts also.
How long have you had your Swifts? I feel like, since mine broke in, they are too soft...The mount is exactly the same. You only need the STI bushing to acomodate the larger bar. This is a noticable upgrade but I do still think something more is needed. I have a set of swift springs in mine and combined with the STI rear bar it is now perfect.
Now THAT is nice to know. Would love to find out immediately if the 19mm one fits because my parts guy told me he could hook me up with a really good price so for that cheap I'd easily swing thatThe cool thing is I asked for a 2010 STI bar. Turns out in 2010 there are two bars. One 18mm and one 19mm. 2008-2009 was the 18mm. Guess which one is coming :biggrin:
I also am told I drive like a grandma. :crazy:Frito - Don't buy it from a dealer. Troll Nasioc.com for a used on. I got mine for $40 with bushings, mount and bolts. No shipping involved as the guy was somewhat local but I wo9uld think you could get a similar deal.
Cuddles - I have had mine in for about 6 months. Perfect is subjective. To me they are a good setup because this is my winter and rainy day summer car. I have a Miata with Coilovers and a bunch of other stuff for sunny days and aggressive driving. So when driving my forester it is only to get me to and from somwhere. I may still be driving more aggressively than most but not too much so. I have actually been told that I drive my Foz like a grandpa (which I am).
I got a quote of $6 each for the bushings so I'll be definitely getting them. Ok, I'm going to email my guy now and see if he'll order it upEvery third part vendor lists their bars as 08+. Do it man c'mon be brave :biggrin: Do get the bushings. I opted to not do the links at this time.
mdgalv - Thanks for the tip. I have been trolling a bit but and I put out a WTB but I am trying to get everything done pretty fast...
I ordered the bar straight away this morning :woohoo: The bar was only $68 and the brackets bushings were around $6. I had other things coming from the dealer so shipping won't change much.
