Nice! Depending... Add some front negative camber and possible add a little more tire pressure up front. Looks like a bit too much tire sidewall roll over. Doesnt look consistent to probably turning on small bumps vs a long smooth sweeping turn. As long as you have a really good alignment "0 toe" . You wont have any funky camber wear.


Car looks great!

Thank you and the tires are Federal RSR 265/35/18 the side wall is thinner than most. My wheels are 18x10 so 265 fits flush with the wheel so I donít have any stretch.

These are the numbers for after the install vs after alignment.

Alignment done at Cornerspeed Tuning in Huntington Beach, CA

Specs look ok. If you adjusted front camber to the 1.5-1.75 range. It would wake up the front end.

I actually like Federal tires. Ive run big name tires for years and still do. We also have some sets of 595, and 595RR's for years. I also put WS2's snowtires on my younger brothers 2010 forester, and SUV's on moms 2015 forester. All well worth the price and then some. A very over look brand from the main stream scene.

WOW!!!!!!!! Unbelievable! Not joke you can FEAL the difference and the handle so well. The response to turns and braking dipping into turns is amazing. Went for a canyon run and took it out to a Ruthless Racing AutoX and I can say I am 100% satisfied with the purchase

I have nothing but positive things to say about my Feal 441's. They work phenomenally for my purposes. I got the Race Valved 12k Front and 14K Rears for my 2016 and love how well they plant the car and tame down the weight of the car.

I am also trying to decide between the Fortune and Feal. Do the Feal's use a radial bearing? Also, how do the Feal springs compare with Swift?

We do offer radial bearings as an option.

If you were to compare the springs under normal street driving purposes you would likely not feel any sort of difference in ride quality. The Swift springs really shine on the track as they are lighter with thinner coils, allowing them to react faster and save on unsprung weight. That being said, the Feal springs with handle spirited and light track use fairly well also.
