If your looking for more sound out of it, id recommend a Nameless Performance axleback. The 08-10 Wrx sedan axleback will work. Unless the bumper design changes after the 2010's.

I have one on my 2010 FXT limited.

Rad video man. Do you ever struggle getting to some trail heads with the car being that low?

I would be interested to know all of the suspension modifications?
Did you go the distance and pull subframe spacers with a roll-center kit, or just a set of coils with uncorrected geometry?

More pictures wouldn't hurt either...

The coilovers were made using impreza struts and Honda civic sleeves and coils. I made new top hats for the rear to lower the car about another inch and a half and raised the strut mounts under the hood in the front to do the same. Sub frame spacers were removed to help with axel binding (which did wonders) but no roll-center kit yet so steering is a bit off geometry as far as caster angle. The whole car was lowered for about 60 dollars and rides quite well, though this method obviously destroys factory struts quickly. The rims are 16x10 et+25 and tires are 205/55/16 for a great stretch.


Pictures may be helpful in visualizing what I have just explained.

Very ingenious of you! I think it looks pretty good!

I'll have a Foz to show off here soon. Will be going the opposite direction though in terms of modding though. Plan on building an off-road rig.

Very creative approach, I must admit.

However, I hope you cut off the unused portion of the old lower spring perches from the Impreza struts before you installed them. Those ghastly perches really eat up a lot of wheel/tire clearance. Plus they look out of place with the sleeves installed. Just something left behind to collect dirt and debris.

Haven't posted here in a while but I'll just leave this in here. P.S. if you don't like Lowered Fozzys you won't like mine. But if you like a 2350lb, STi swapped, 450whp widebody with 275/40/17s, and the turbo in the headlight race Foz then this is the car for you...
