i'm assuming forester jdm pinks, forester swifts, and oem wrx.
if that's the case, in order from tallest to lowest is pinks, swifts, and then oem wrx.

i believe you would have to switch to the 04-08 type suspension, meaning the struts and tophats too. you should be able to find a cheap set of used SG forester suspension on here. after that, just assemble and it bolts right in.

if you have the wrx struts, springs, and tophat, i recommend you just use those or swap the spring with the wrx specific swifts or spt wrx springs. do NOT put forester springs on the wrx struts.

The plan is to use WRX struts with Swift FXT. I read that the Swift improve a lot the handling, even better than the Pinks.

Why mismatch struts and springs? If you're getting WRX struts, get the WRX specific Swifts with them. Forester Swifts were designed specifically to work with the stock struts.

You are right, i said that because i have a set of struts/springs from a WRX, and because i dont want to go that low i will be using a set of SWIFT instead, and now with all of the good advice i am geting here i will go with a set of struts for Forester, thank you very much guys for help me clarify all of that info, and save me a lot of time and money in wrong parts.

Are you selling your 04-08 wrx struts and springs and top hats?
