Today I got my new JDM Forester STI springs in the mail, and my Carbotech Bobcat brake pads came yesterday. It's all going on tomorrow evening, getting aligned Friday after work, then getting put to the test on Sunday with a winter driving school by the BMW CCA. So I'll get to push em and see how it all works :)

Are you keeping the stock struts? I too have those springs, sitting in my basement, waiting for Spring to arrive.

Let me know how it turns out.

Techy,
Who did you purchase those springs from, and if you don't mind me asking, how much did they run you? I really would like them for my XT.

I got them from SubiGal http://www.subarugenuineparts.com


Just got them installed today. Ride is definetly more harsh, but thus far plenty bearable. It snowed tonight so I can't really take them out to see what hard cornering feels like, but I did take one or two of the more dry corners, and it definetly helps handling.

The Carbotech's also help braking a lot. I'll post up full reviews after I've had more than a 20 min highway drive on them.

At least for the moment I'm keeping the stock struts.
