03 2.5 XS
I have a 2003 forester 2.5xs and i want to drop it 1" and i want to know the cheapest way to safely do so.
Technically speaking, why couldn't you do this?Borrow your neighbors sawzall. Then just cut out one inch off the bottom of each spring. I do it by eye...while springs are still on the car. Spring compressors are for sissies. Then sell the sawzall on ebay.
Or get some used Swifts.
Good point, but are the stock Forester springs tapered? 2010?Most springs have a flat wind at the bottom to seat properly and also a taper shape to them, so you can't necessarily get away with it.
As for my [email protected]$$ answer, either the supersized bucket of chicken at KFC and gain 100 lbs, or buy 2 bags of sand and distribute in the vehicle.
