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:
Description (Click to View Details)
STI BUSHING REAR TRAILING LINK (R) (2 REQ'D)
STI BUSHING REAR LATERAL LINK (F,R) OUT (4 REQ'D)
STI BUSHING REAR LATERAL LINK (F) IN (2 REQ'D)
STI BUSHING REAR LATERAL LINK (R) IN (2 REQ'D)
STI LATERAL LINK SET
STI STRUT MOUNT F (2 REQ'D)
I assume those are the retail prices. Question is, would these be a good buy at cost? How would they affect ride/handling?
(feel free to email/copy to me at email@example.com)

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.
