I would like to lower my forester at least 2 inches. I have read that wrx parts will fit on a forester. Does anyone know if the swift springs for a wrx (4f903) will fit my forester? I dont think that the standard part number (4f904) will lower the vehicle as much as the wrx. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum from Niagara Falls!
The WRX spec springs will require the shorter WRX struts in order to ride properly. Technically they'll fit on your Forester struts, but you'd be on the bump stops for sure almost all of the time.

*I'm not sure which generation those springs are for, so I'm not 100% sure on the accuracy of my response. If they're 04-07 WRX spec and you've got an 03-08 Forester, then my response is accurate*

rule of thumb, match sti/wrx springs w/ sti/wrx struts or you will prematurely wear out your struts. btw fill out your profile, what year is your forester????
