1998 Subaru Forester
List has been updated!
Not without modification, unfortunately. The issue with the SH gen brackets was with the OEM anchoring hardware (SOA 902060019 Welding Nut) for the square holes in the front bumper. Subaru's metal welding nuts were great in that they snapped directly into the backside of the SH bumper holes and were threaded to accept M6 type screws. But for us that meant that the SH brackets had to be re-spec'd for the screws with a different countersink angle and mounting hole diameter than the rest of the batch (SF, SG, and SJ brackets all share the same specs and narrower mounting holes).do these work AT ALL on 09-13 forester? or no way.
I don't have any personal experience with the product so I can't answer the question with authority, but I think it would depend on what you intend to do with the bar. If it's only for looks/cosmetics, then bolting it to the plate bracket would certainly be sufficient to hold it in place. BUT, if you're thinking of adding lights, keep in mind that the plate bracket (and thus, the light bar) only attaches to the plastic bumper cover, which is flexible by nature - not the metal bumper beam behind it. In my personal experience lights should always be attached to a solid, supported metal surface like the bumper beam or radiator support beam, or you will likely get very annoying shake/vibration in the projected light beam.
