After much research and advice from other Forester and Subaru enthusiasts, I've made some of my first semi-extensive mods to the FXT. This weekend Ellen (as I like to call her) received Konis, JDM STI Pink wagon springs, Rota G-Forces, and BF Goodrich rubber. I've promised photos, so here they are.

I'd like to especially thank Stan for his extensive communication on the subject and help all along the way. He was my inspiration. Michael, aka WickedSubies, over at awdpirates was who helped with the install. It was a pleasure working with him and would recommend him to anyone in the Denver/Ft. Collins/Boulder area.

Thanks all for the kind words. I must admit, I was starting to wonder if I was going to like the color when it when on the car after staring at the wheels stacked up on the porch for a couple weeks prior to install. Now it simply puts a big grin on my face whenever I look at it. The drive puts a similar smile on my face. I can't be more happier with how it rides and handles. It's firm, which I like, but not too firm and handles like a champ.

Just wait until I hang a giant 24k gold dollar sign necklace from the rear view mirror.
