FYI, front springs from '98+ may work on your '08 OBS (depending on what spring rate you're after), but the rears will have to be from an '09 Forester to match up with your multilink rear suspension. Full spring/strut combos would be a good idea to be sure you don't max out the travel on your stock OBS struts when putting taller springs on.

Thanks for the info, will the 08 forester setup work the same as an 09?

No, '08 Forester rear suspension was still Macpherson strut style. '09 was the switch to multilink.
