Swift Sport Springs - Forester Specific

I just wanted to let people know that we will be getting Swift Sport Springs that are specifically for the Forester.

Below is a link to the image of what the springs look like on the Forester XT.
http://www.mann-engineering.com/foru...sp?photoid=133

We would like to thank Adam for helping us test these springs as we have been working quite awhile with Swift to get the springs out as an option.

Details are on the way. As far as drop, Adam has the drop posted in another thread, but the data that Swift has given me is that it is about a 40mm drop in the front and 30mm drop in the rear. Swift has always given a nice and level drop on all their Sport Springs. Anybody who knows Swift knows the kind of ride quality and handling improves that are expected of Swift. Adam has said that it rides and handles better than stock and still has very good ground clearance for those looking to still have height for those trips to the mountains. ;)

The rates and drop that we are looking at are below:
Front: 3.1kg/mm; -40mm
Rear: 3.2Kg/mm; -30mm

These are preliminary numbers that Swift has given me.

Price: 369USD MSRP
Our Price: 289USD Shipped
Initial Group Buy Kick off price(First 15 sets): PM us or email us at [email protected]

Price, spring rates and when I can I buy are my questions.

Right now, the only choices I seem to have for a +/- 2" drop are WRX springs (still a PITA to figure out all I need) or Tein S-Techs.

The springs are being made as we speak. I am going to start a list of those who would be interested these springs. If you would like more information about how the springs perform, you can definitely ask Adam of LIC Motorsports and I am sure he would be more than willing to provide feedback on them as he helped us test the springs.

See first post for the list. If interested, just let us know and we will put you down. :)

We will be doing a group buy price on the initial shipment of 15 sets and after that we will be going back to regular spring pricing of 289USD Shipped.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Gary

These springs are to be used with Forester struts?

Put me down for a set please. If there is a deposit to be made, let me know.

Also what is the ETA on the springs as well?

No deposits are required at the moment as we are waiting for an ETA from Swift. We estimate it at about 6-8weeks out because it takes about 4weeks to manufacture the springs, 1 week for shipping, and 1 week for customs and a couple of days for me to get the springs. The go ahead for production was placed a little over a week ago.

Thanks,
Gary

That'll be fine. With me ordering FXT specific Koni's, and getting some RCE camber plates, and rear STi top hats.. that should work out fine
