Question for you gurus in the subject. I want to lift my car and an opportunity present itself with a 08 Forester's suspension. Is it going to fit an 08 STI?

any parts store would have them. I just shopped for 95 legacy or maybe 98 outback camber kit.

Maybe SPC brand?

Sadly I think not. I think 08 was the new body and redesigned rear suspension. It's multi-link rear, double wishbone in the 08 right?
you'll need macphearson strut front AND rear to utilize the 08 fozzy stuff. . .

Na, forester has Mcstrut all the way around up until 09. Your car has Mcstrut front and shock rear suspension. Also the hole pattern is different on your shock towers then the studs on the Foz top mounts.

You'd need something off the 09+ foz. I'm not 100% that would work though either, only as I've not yet tried it.

Get yourself a set of King lift springs, done deal. If you want more clearance add spacers. You don't wanna give up your really good stock STi dampers for the Foz units.

Thank you. My car got an alignment last Tuesday and the tech didn't have to use a camber bolt kit of any kind. He was able to use my oem camber bolt to get a perfect alignment.

08 STI on king springs, the lift had some not so hot effects on the front camber that ultimately caused me to take the springs out. I may try spacers over camber plates.

my friend works at a shop that works primarily on subarus... they always have all sorts of junk and scrap subys hanging around so he always has different parts to play with.

here is his lifted legacy: great for the ever changing vermont cconditions, and pretty much anywhere else he wants to go...


he has another slightly lifted white one, that he uses as a plow vehicle in the winter. and he has a gc that has gone through a lot of changes, but I believe it has a ej22 turbo motor from a legacy in it now, that he uses as a daily and ice racer in the winter.

here's a quick video clip he put together of his rides in action:

Thats why you get an alignment after lifting and lowering. obs subframe spacers, trailing arms, and camber bolts.

Anyone have 09+ Forester struts side by side with 11+ wrx struts? Not 08-10, but 11+.

It is stock heaight for the 2004 baja turbo, and all 2005-2006 models. They sit 1 inch higher than the 03's.
My old 03 had a 1" subtle solutions lift that I put on.
I will soon be lifting this one as well.

The company that built my bar (Gorilla Offroad Company) also makes a 1" spacer. Same design concept as the subtle lift, but nearly half the price! I am ordering Gorilla's lift kit next week.
I HIGHLY recommend Gorilla, they are a great company with amazing customer service and very tough and reliable products.

Just in case any of you other 3rd gen guys need strut spacers, I have some up for sale in my "back to stock" thread. 1/4" Paranoid Fabrications (PF) rear, 3/8" PF rear, 1/2" PF front and rear, and 1" Subtle Solutions front and rear spacers. They're pairs or sets, not singles.
