Greetings,
Does anyone make strut brace for older Forester's (1997.1998 or 1999?).
Thank you!

You might want to keep an eye on ebay, I know that once and awhile on
there you can get lucky and score some good deals.

Sorry to sort of hi-jack this thread but am I right that a late classic Impreza strut bar will fit my 2000 S Turbo?

Thanks Ira but if I fit a rear brace then it could not swallow furniture from the blue and yellow shop in Warrington!!

They all come flat packed so they'll fit under the strutbar. Or you could do like Mike said:D

True... true... I forgot about that. My wife and I were just discussing how flat packed our kitchen chairs were. I think we got 5 or 6 chairs in the trunk of the wrx.

The closest blue & yellow beast for me is south of Boston. :( too far. I never had height issues loading up the forester, I had length issues... especially when trying to bring home things like the Billy Bookcase.

I can only speak from my standpoint of owning both an '01 Forester S and '01 Impreza (GC chasis). In my Forester, the rear top hat stud pattern is that of a '02+ GD Impreza. This makes any rear strut bar for a GC Impreza imcompatible with an '01 SF5 Forester... even one from a wagon will not work.

On an interesting note: I took off a Cusco rear strut bar from an '05 STi and it fit perfectly in my '01 Forester.
