Post back on how you like the handling! Ive got a set of WRX take-offs with cheap bouncy ebay springs on them (which is why the car is back at stock height), so i cant decide if i want to just get some stock WRX springs for cheap and go with the WRX suspension, or get some STI springs and put those on the WRX struts, or if its really worth it to get STI struts/springs together.

My SH rides fantastic with 2011 WRX suspension on it. Not quite as low/stiff as the STI suspension but it works perfect I think.

Might get some RCE Black springs for it down the road but otherwise I am really happy.

Added a Whiteline 22mm rear sway bar and sway bar mount supports and that really tightened everything up fantastically.

Hmm. But an SH is entirely different than an SG? And i know the 11 wrx has a totally different suspension design than the 02-07 wrx, which is what fits on SF and SG. Not sure if older WRX stuff would compare to the 2011.

Do you have rear camber adjustment bushings? I just put '10 wrx struts and springs on my '10 fxt. I got my alignment done and they recommended that I should get those bushings and camber bolts for the front.

After driving it for a week now we both agrees it handles great. Nothing compared to my sti on coilovers but nice and stiff and the drop looks great. Also it's easy to mod the fronts to fit. Just going to have to get the rear camber kit since its at about -2.

is this with the STI rear sway too? or running the stock sway? And i imagine an STI with coil-overs is very, very impressive handling beast.

Stock sway. Will be getting a STI one soon since my friend is upgrading. I personally don't think it will make that much of a difference. There isn't very much roll as is and it is a dd so don;t want it too stiff.

nice! how's she handle? and if you decide to change up springs like sti springs, you'll need to use the rear top-hats from your original forester suspension, or get 02-03 specific springs, cause the 02-03 wrx had wierd top hats in the rear. looks good though!
