Very cool! Looks well thought-out. My suggestions...if you are going to be keeping the STi struts/springs/tops for a while, a good-value upgrade are Prodrive or STi pink springs. Also, if it is anything like the Impreza, some chassis bracing can go a long way for better turn-in, especially when it comes to the front sub-frame area.

nice build

Sti Forester FTW! I don't usually subscribe to threads, but when I do it's a built Forester.
