I have come across a set of struts from a 2005 sti with tein s-tech springs for a decent price. also come with the stock springs.
said to have 30k on the struts.

will these be a direct bolt on for my 03 forester?
how much would just stock sti suspension lower it?
the specs on these say 1.6/1.9 FR/RR DROP, will this make my car too low?

any information would be very helpful.

thanks.

how much would just stock sti suspension lower it? ~3"

any information would be very helpful.

thanks.
answers are highlighted. what are you looking to do w/ the car? itll help us recommend the best suspension for ya. ie: is the car your daily driver? do you do track events? auto-x? off-road?

AND if they've already been riding on s-techs, chances are those struts won't last much longer!
