I have a quote for low milage JDM SG9 Forester STI Struts, springs and top hats. Is this a reasonable price?

Sounds reasonable if it includes the springs & tophats, IIRC. Is that from www.jdmpartstx.com ?? I saw that they had some coming in.

Yes, the JDMs are from JDMpartstx.com. John has been patiently answering all of my questions.

I can wait to get them mounted. My wife likes the aceleration of our new 06 XT, but is complaining about the handling (our last car was a 1999.5 Audi A4 Avant) I'm not going to tell her about the suspension, until she has driven it to see what she says.

upgrade your rear swaybar too... that makes a big difference. It's the one mod that my wife actually approved of.

If its a shipped price...

They had a set about two months back that they had offered for $775.00 to me shipped. I was looking for a lower ride height and opted to not go that route. I think its clearly a supply and demand deal with the SG9 FSTI suspensions, and considering it is nice barely used oe equipment its probably a decent deal.

I'm going to get a Cobb rear sway bar and end links and put them in at the same time as the Struts. The next change is going to be 225/55/16 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires. That will probably it for me, maybe a cobb front sway bar in the future. This is my wife's everday car.

Make sure you do something about the mounting on the lateral links tab. That tab has been known to snap off. Search around and you will see what I mean.
