As long as the springs are designed for Forester struts (and these seem to be), there should be no problem.

If you follow the threads on this forum, you occasionally find someone wanting to match Forester struts with WRX springs (or vice versa) or some other oddball spring-strut matching. These mis-matchings may not lead to a happy ending. The struts don't necessarily 'blow' but they may wear prematurely and you may have other issues as well.

Step back a bit from your specific question. Automobile struts and shocks are designed to properly dampen the vibrations of specific springs under specific loading. That is the sole function of a strut. Struts last longer and perform better when used as designed.
