yes but I was under the impression that the whiteline alk was modeled after the forester link. So the only thing you would be getting is a stiffer bushing.

MPJ,

There is no particular benefit in fitting the Whiteline ALK to a Forrester as the housing that supports the bush is very similar shape to that of the ALK, therefore there will be no anti-lift benefits provided by the ALK, only caster increase.
The bush used in the Whiteline ALK is specially designed with the bore having a particular angle designed in it to accommodate the re-aligned control arm in order to prevent premature bush wear. This feature of the ALK bush is of no use on the Forrester as the control arm will not be re-aligned therefore creating extra load on specific area's of the bush, creating premature wear.
It is for this reason we have developed bush part # KCA375, a low compliance polyurethane bush that provides an additional 0.5 degree's of static caster increase, to be installed into the original bush housing.

I hope this help you.
Cheers
Wayne C
