Long time no posts! i just want to chime in since my last suspension post when i blew up my second so-called bullet proof stock 4eat Trans last Sept2015 That one caused me to miss 2 more Subaru shoot outs, making it 3 straight that i couldn't run in. i think i have a solution to it all though. it took me a while but i saved up my money for an IPT performance transmission. Should have done this after the first blown trans, it would have saved me $2500. i sent it to: IPT Performance Transmissions | Performance Parts | Torque Converters Oct 19 2016 i will post when i get it back. i miss my 4eat toaster.

Anyone in the NW burbs with Swifts or WRX suspension, available to let me ride in your Forester?

I'm stuck between Swifts+GR2s and STI+WRX Struts

Trans is swapped and @ 200miles. It pulls strong. Haven't tried out the torque converter yet. But it seems like the wheels want to spin if there is any hard throttle. It may need a tune now. Definately more transmission torque power than HP.
I lowered the suspension, now the tires are rubbing on turns. Wantta buy some 18inch Enkies?

While waiting for 4EATME, I hear a distinctive rumble in the parking lot. My wife sees another black Forester drive by and comments "it's just like yours except nicer"



After driving your car, I have realized I should have went 4EAT.

Very nice and very clean

^Thanks^. Show pics of the 16inch wheels you got.

I finally got the 18 inch wheels off and pictures. They're Enkei RS+M Racing prototype. 7.5x18 -48mm offset.
No curb rash!
The tires are All season Goodyear Eagle LS2 225 50 18. Used 6months in winter seasons, normal wear nothing strange. Good tread
sold together picked up $675. split up $550 wheels and $250 tires. Pm me.
