The Addlestone Forester

Hey Guys,

I'm Andy from Addlestone - bought my first (98)Forester back in October '17, and loving it!

First time I've felt compelled to buy axle stands and get under a car since owning a veedub camper back in the early '80s!

My '98 Forester is a manual petrol non-turbo, with 78K on the clock.

I use it for work, and to keep costs down, want to do as much work on it as I can before phoning the local mechanic.

As you may notice from the pic, we have a sagging butt, and that is with coil assistors fitted, so next major purchase will be some ezyfit suspension units.

Good to be here.

Easy job if drop link bolts not rusted mess and brake lines separate and reusable .

Will make huge difference to ride and handling as yours totally collapsed .

looks tidy for a 98, have fun with your classic station wagon  ...
