I have the Whiteline caster bushing kit on and a STi owner is interested in my stock mounts to press the Whiteline bushings into. Same mounts?

Anyone?

I think the Forester mount has a small amount of spacer built into it making it different than the STI mount. That's the reasoning behind Whiteline not making a Forester specific ALK and some thrifty Impreza owners buying Forester mounts to get more caster in their cars.

So not an upgrade with Whiteline bushings and better off with a True ALK?

On a Forester, an full ALK is a waste of money since you get the same effect by adding the cheaper bushing into the stock housing.
On an Impreza, the Forester housing will get you a small increase in caster but not as much as an full ALK.
