yep, forester specific, and the drop is about 2" in front and 1" in the rear. it's a very subtle drop, but it makes a huge difference. both visually and handling-wise. i'm very happy with them

Stock struts with F-STI pink springs in both pics above; currently I'm running the Forester-specific Swift springs instead of the pinks. The drop is similar. Here's a pic with the Swifts on:

Can you give me a quick review of the Swifts vs Pinks?

I know you said the drop is similar, but how was the "feel" of the two? Is one more stiff than the other, etc...

Initially the feel was very similar (hubby tried to swap my pinks out for the Swifts without me knowing), but the Swifts are less harsh over bumps and rough pavement than the FSTI pinks. At the same time they provide better control and induce less body roll in corners, and they allow for the suspension to re-set itself quicker after being unsettled, IMO.

My only gripe (if you could call it that) would be that at high speeds on undulating roads they can make things feel a little light and "floaty" at times, but I think that would be the case with any suspension setup that utilizes the long stroke of the stock FXT struts.
