Default FS: barely used Forester XT suspension

Complete suspension including tophats, springs, and struts for all 4 corners!! Direct swap for most WRXs so you guys can go rallying/off-roading!

Used for ~10K on MY05 Forester XT; swapped out for 04 STI takeoffs when she was still pretty young. Suspension has NEVER been taken apart!

$225 picked up in the ChicagoLand area; not willing to ship. PM if interested.

Thanks.

Sonny

Most likely not... the rear upper mounts on the 04+ are different IIRC.

I wouldn't think it would work.. oh well. If you find out theres a magical bracket or random reason why it will fit, shoot me a PM. I've been toying with the idea of a "monster" wrx for a while..

I think all you need is a MY04-05 top hat in the rear to make this work. I'd double check that but pretty sure this is the only hitch in the swap.

I'm also pretty sure that the tophat MY just has to match the strut MY, not the chassis... these should bolt right in and offer about a 2" lift.

The tophat has to match the spring, which is all included in the set; if the tophat matches the 02-03 chassis, you bugeye guys are golden.

Glad to see that you are still running the STi spring/strut combo.

Bump for a great seller.

Hey Mr. R... thanks for the bump.

I'm considering selling the 04 STI suspension (currently on the car) since it's taking me so long to sell the FXT suspension. Which do you think is worth more:

- 05 FXT takeoffs with 10K miles?
- 04 STI takeoffs with 40K miles?
