Ok I am not a newb to Turbo Subbies and 02-07 Impreza suspension. I am however a total newb at this FXT.

Its for my sister and its just a DD, it will never see track and will spend its life in Downtown Toronto. She loves a good handling vehicle, it was hard for her to pick the fxt over the non-Turbo with Sport suspension.

I havent quite gotten the vehicle but a quick sweep underneath looked like it shares the suspension design from the new Impreza/Leggy/STi

What swaybars can I put on the truck and I am wondering what suspension parts swap over...the goal would be to lower it and run it @ wagon/sedan ride heights not trucklet ride heights. She doesnt need the clearence that it comes with, just the space, she would ideally have bought a LGT but she thinks they look fugly (I agree) Please dont ask me to drap it on Teins or BC or Stance etc. I will consider springs/struts and coilovers as options. Can LGT or Impreza coilovers/springs directly work?

What other upgrades are suggested to get just a tighter and sportier feel out of it? I droove it hard and it gets pretty nervous and unsettling over mid corner bumps, the rear almost hops sideways....the sporttech in that sense was much better.

TIA

Do the rear sway bar for any 2009 STI sway / endlink it will fit on the SH.

Swap the OEM coil to swifts coil is what alot of users have done it will reduce the clearance by +- 1 inch.

there is alot of information you can find surfing the forum it all depend what she will do with it.

But for a DD change to swift and rear sway bar will make a good upgrade.

protune stage 2 next?
