2010 Subaru Forester Xt

Hey I want to lower my SH forester what is the easiest way to do this?

 

Also what is the best turbo back exhaust to get installed? I currently have a catback exhaust installed that has a straight pipe, wondering if a turboback will be as loud and hopefully give the car more power.

 

Thanks in advance

Hey Matthat,

 

I don't have answers but I'm in the same position.

 

No. 1 on my list is to install stiffer sway bars. I'm thinking Whiteline 24mm front, 22mm rear.

 

No. 2 is lowering. In my case I don't want to slam it, only after a small amount of lowering, e.g. 1". I was thinking King springs but their website says "DUE TO A LACK OF SUSPENSION TRAVEL OF THE SHOCK ABSORBERS, WE CAN NOT MANUFACTURE A LOWERED NOR A RAISED HEIGHT FOR THIS VEHICLE"  so I need to research this some more. https://kingsprings.com.au/catalogue/vehicle/837/subaru-forester-sh-without-self-level-rear-3-2008-2013

 

No. 3 is exhaust. Mine is currently bog standard. I haven't done any research on this yet.

I have a straight pipe from my cat back, very loud, good rumble on it. I talked to mag and turbo and yes they said the same thing about the suspension. I was wondering if it's possible to bolt on wrx suspension and do it that way.

Pedders may do springs.

 

sway bars if you have the factory bar and mounts then look at the Sti from the 08-14 if the american forums can be trusted. A high vehicle and heavy bar would be pretty s***. 

the white line bars are very stiff even in the Sti they are overkill on the road. Even at 40kph on a tight 90 turn the car squats at the back enough to feel the balance shift. 
 

for shocks maybe the legacy would be closer in that it is higher than Impreza and could be same mounting.

A GR impreza crosstrek/xv whichever one it was at that point would probably be the closest since the forester chassis is usually closer to an impreza than a legacy
