98 Forester 3.0R

Default 98 forester STI (Phase 1-SUSPENSION)-(Phase 2 EZ30R)


This can be my introduction to the forum. I picked up a 98 forester s back in september with the intent to do some serious suspension and power upgrades.
I started with a full suspension/brake swap from the 05-07 STI, here are some pics of that 3 week project that i will call phase 1.

This is what it looked like before

Sway bar goodies

Rear STI oem suspension pieces, svx axle

Front STI aluminum control arms

Here is the rear sway bar mounted, along with the rear aluminum control arms.

In order to fit all the STI suspension pieces, I swapped in the STI crossmember, and steering rack but cant seem to find the pics of that.

For the most part everything bolted in no issues. But I will try to show the issues I ran into next.

The stock forester front axles are the correct spline but the diameter was to small to fit the sti abs tone rings.

So I made some aluminum spacers to correctly locate the tone rings on the axle.

That took care of the front axle/hub mating issues.
