Default Wrx Springs & Struts on Fozzy??

Hey Fellas,

I know this has been answered before, but im having a tough time locating it. Ill just get right down to it. Will my 07 Sedan Wrx springs and struts fit on an 08 Forester? If not, is there any minor modifications I can make to make them fit?

Thanks,
B

Yes it would fit. It will be overly low, but it'll fit.

Overly low? Will I be tucking or the wheel gap will just be gone? Sorry to bug, i just want to clarify before I take the time to do it.

Not tucking. But WRX struts with lowering springs will be 2.5-3+" lower, depending on springs used. Just WRX struts and springs will be around 1.5-2" lower right off the bat.

So a good mix could be King stiffer stock height springs with WRX struts.

Hey teiva, off topic a bit but do you know how much wrx springs on the foz struts will lower?

Op, you might want to put some wrx springs on your foz struts?

Actually they are installed and i just kept the wrx springs on the wrx struts and put them on the foz. The rear is a bit lower but over all i see a good 2inch drop.

You can get rear spacers of varying thicknesses from paranoid fabrications as well as longer studs from him too.
