Post IL: V7 STi Suspension With Swift WRX Wagon Springs

Fully assembled suspension that makes a suspension swap a breeze on either a WRX Wagon or Forester. Provides a modest drop on a WRX from what Swift claims, but on the Forester I got nothing but compliments on how it looked with the suspension on the car. The struts have about 20,000 miles on them and the springs have 8,000 miles on them.

Unfortunately I lost the photos of the suspension on the car, but it is a drop comparable with the drop of WRX suspension on a Forester or STi springs on a WRX.

SOLD!

Would these fit a 07 wagon? How was the daily driving feel? Would you need anything else to go with?

I'm not 100% sure. I had this suspension on an 07 Forester XT, and for some reason I think that the 07 WRX Wagon might have had different tophats in the rear. I have been out of the WRX world since the newer models came out.

As for needing anything else, nope. These are direct bolt on replacements for the strut assembly. 3 bolts on top, 2 on the bottom and the clips and bolts for the brake lines. As installs go, one of the easiest for the biggest change in handling.

Re: daily driving - it is a stiffer ride. I felt that these handled much better than my stock suspension with Eibach springs on my 02 WRX. If you want to get rid of body roll this is a huge step in that direction - but you do feel the road at all times, I won't lie and say it's cushy or comfortable, but it certainly isn't bad either. Firm is the best way to describe it.

Im fine with a firmer ride. I told my self I wouldnt do coil overs, but if the price is right I dont see why not. Ill start checking into it more, an if they aint gone by the time I decide Ill be sure to let you know .

RexTexWagon,
These aren't coilovers - they are just a firmer strut & spring combination. It's really going to look the same as what you take off, but a stiffer ride. I liked these better because they could remain on all year in the northern states vs. swapping the coilovers for the winter months.

Maybe that helps?
