Default Forester/STI suspension parts from SPT?

I'm about to get a new FXT 5MT, and I have an urgent question (because of time constraints to take advantage of Subaru rebates before Monday!):

I think as part of the deal the dealer will let me buy some accessories/parts at dealer cost. I just looked on Subaru's SPT site and found the following listed for Foresters:



*
Part Number
*
Description (Click to View Details)
MSRP*


B0220FE010

STI BUSHING REAR TRAILING LINK (R) (2 REQ'D)
$24.95

B0220FE020

STI BUSHING REAR LATERAL LINK (F,R) OUT (4 REQ'D)
$13.95

B0220FE030

STI BUSHING REAR LATERAL LINK (F) IN (2 REQ'D)
$19.95

B0220FE040

STI BUSHING REAR LATERAL LINK (R) IN (2 REQ'D)
$19.95

B0250SA000

STI LATERAL LINK SET
$489.95

B0310FE000

STI STRUT MOUNT F (2 REQ'D)
$72.9

I assume those are the retail prices. Question is, would these be a good buy at cost? How would they affect ride/handling?

Thanks!

what you should ask yourself...


is how much is it going to cost to get the lateral links and trailing arms removed,
taken to a press, and press those bushings in/out....

any stiffened suspension bits will help with overall feel and handling
it's best to make a plan, and do the mods which correspond with your goals.

All of the above listed parts are "good" Group N bits and will have a nice overall effect on the car, but I'm just not sure you'd NOTICE any of them without
a new suspension, new tires, etc.
