Default 09 FXT questions...

New with the Forester scene and was just wondering if I'd be able to put STI springs on the stock Forester sturts.?.? I've heard of older FXT's using stock WRX suspension, but just wanted to check.

i dont have a definate answer, except for the fact that you can not (well, should not) put STI springs on stock FXT struts even if they fit. STI springs are way too stiff/high spring rate for the stock struts, it would handle like poo and blow in no time. You shouldn't even use regular wrx springs on FXT struts. Whatever springs you go with, you should really upgrade your struts as well, except maybe with the FXT-specific swift springs.

What you should be asking is if STI struts fit on the '09 FXT.
