Robbie_06,

Please - more details, specs and pics on the white Forester. That thing looks great, I am very interested in 'what works' and 'what doesn't work' especially from a suspension stand point.

Thank you!

An SF.org member put the 08+ WRX suspension in his SH Forester, it all bolted up but he ran into problems with the upper rear control arm, I believe, hitting the body. If I remember correctly, the Forester one is straight and the Impreza one has a curve to clear the chassis.
As far as everything else in the STI swap, Rob's dad is on the new Subiesport DVD saying it's all basically plug and play.

How much do you guys think it would cost to get that STi swap into a SH forester? Or even a WRX or WRX265?

The builder was saying in the SubieSport DVD that someone wanting to do the same thing should expect to spend $40-45k. I think that included buying the new Forester too though.

If I opened my wallet enough, do you think they'd convert my SH forester too?

Haha, good question, you could try sending a PM to Robbie_06 since his father built it.

Is this one lowered at all? I want some tighter springs and a slightly lowered center of gravity.

Did swift ever release their springs for the 09/10 Forester.
