The '03 Forester should be using same suspension setup as '04-'08 XT, so you should be good with those springs. You can't really build too much around the Forester Swifts since there aren't any strut options except for GR2s, but they are great springs. If you are really set on running the lift kit with them, that's fine, but it seems very few go that route.

If you were willing to go the route of Impreza-fitment stuff, there'd be more options, and you could still keep the height using the 1" lift kit. How are your stock struts, how many miles on them? If you are paying someone to do the work, may consider doing the struts at the same time.
