V8 WRX STRUTS FIT SG9 FORESTER STI??


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, just wondering if anyone knows if the v8 wrx  struts fit the 2005 STI forester?

 

 i have been informed that they run the same suspension set up as the v8 sti wrx but just want to be 100 percent sure before I buy some BC gold suspension for the forester.

Yes they do fit. If what you are getting is height adjustable, then you'll have no issues.

 

The only real consideration when getting suspension from a WRX, is the height in the rear is different between Sedan and Wagon, the sedan being lower, and requires spacers to sit at the right height.

 

There is a local guy in Wellington who has just installed BC Golds into his SG9 Forester and aside from issues getting the cert, he hasn't had any issues in the actual fitment / install of them.

When you swap the suspension over.. you put this over the top of the top-mount, then install it into the car. So basically, it is sandwiched between the top-mount and the car's chassis. They are 10mm thick so it should still give more than enough thread to bolt your nuts onto.

 

Send me a PM and we'll sort out the $ and postage
