Was trying to see if he was on the 04 Sti strut spring combo or something like it . I daily drive the forester and I'm in illinois. Salt will kill coilovers

I'm 99% sure he was on coilovers. You can of course get springs but it won't sit exactly like that, you'll sag more in the rear. You can get saggy butt spacers and get it to sit more correctly but you won't have the wheels sitting right at the fender. It'll sit a little higher.

I love the look of older foresters lowered. Recently got a 2018 fxt and might lower it.

Anybody have a source on a SG9 Sports bumper in SGM color? I think it's called SGM, haven't figured out the exact color code.

I know I can go to the dealership and order an unpainted one but I'd like to try to find one already painted.

Pic of someone else's car for color reference.

SGM "steel gray metallic" is color code 26d
It was a MY2006 offered color.
