I have a 2011 with Cusco zero 2 E's that i would rather keep then sell and I'm hoping to see if they fit or not.

i know the guy on here that put bc coils on his forester said there for the SJ but on his box pic it shows 2012+

tried to call b.c. but they couldn't confirm this.....




just want to know before i buy my forester from work and start stripping it down....

I have perrin sti rear sway
18x9.5 +35 rpf1 in SBC
sti exhaust
and a few other goodies ready to go

To our knowledge the front its a legacy strut, since the legacy strut bar is probably only one that fits.

Rear is all impreza/wrx

I'm not sure the past if legacy uses a different strut or not.


BC Racing coilovers in my thread have pictures of the bolt pattern if you want i can measure my stocks and compare it to your old ones.

I think the only concern is the front struts have not been confirmed.

hmm ok question for you. since the top hat rotates how far off is the fitment? as in if i rotated the top hate 180degrees would that work to get it to bolt in, & to keep the camber adjustments the same? ( as in being able to properly adjust them in the same directions)?

dod you have a pic of the lgt tower bar on your fxt to see how far off it was?

Cusco already has a strut tower bar out for the 2014 Forester...

I never tried a legacy bar they don't have one in stock. I'm trying to test fit something when the part is avaliable by gtspec.

Hmm the location of the bolts are the same and same length apart! Everything is leaning towards that it will fit.

Hrmm interesting. I'm not familiar with the front suspension in the previous forester. the BC Racing did say Forester +12 (figure japan year and models of the forester).
