Hi,

We have gotten our early development springs from our spring manufacturer and are developing lowering springs for the new 2014+ SJ Chassis'. We are looking for the following three vehicles. We would prefer the car to be completely stock and unmodified.

1. Vehicle Found

2. 2014+ Forester (SJ) Non-Turbo, CVT

3. Vehicle Found

If you are in the area and are willing to do some testing, please send us a PM or email us at [email protected].

Thanks!

Thank you to those who have offered for the Turbo Model. We have an owner scheduled in for testing and are in contact with. If it does not go through then we will let the other owners on our list know.

We are still looking for the first two vehicles locally for testing.

Thanks!

Interested in this, what time frame from testing to actual production?
We have started testing the springs and are waiting on a little more feedback from the car we are testing on. Once we are satisfied, production can begin as soon as we tell our manufacturer.

Thanks!

can you speak to what the drop will be compared to stock since they're on a vehicle now?
Sorry for the delayed response as we were out on a business trip this past week. The drop we are aiming for is a 1-inch(25mm) drop from the stock ride height.

We are still looking for non-turbo versions locally.

Thanks!

Are both the XT and non-turbo Forester springs going on sale at the same time? Surprised no responses how many chances are you going to get to have a set of lowering springs installed on your vehicle for free.

Release of the springs would determine how long it would take for us to get the necessary test vehicles. If we are finished up with our testing of one sooner than the other, then we will release the one that is completed first.

As far as testing goes, we would ultimately give the customer who offered their vehicle for testing a free set of springs when everything is done.

Thanks,
Mann Engineering Team

Any updates?
We are still finalizing up some specifications for the XT Lowering Springs. Please check back with us in about 2-3weeks for more information. We will make a formal announcement when we are ready to release the springs.

Thanks!
