Hey I'm starting this as me and a few fozzie owner are having trouble finding good second hand parts apart from eBay we are hitting a wall. I'm after a set of lowering springs for a forester s turbo and my pal is after a set of wheels to fit his forester if anyone can help I'm in the Watford area and he's near marlow

Be careful lowering foresters as if on SLS rear struts you will need change them as well.

Most people swap to impreza struts-springs as cheap used part option so find what works with you forester version & go hunting.

Is a few specialist breakers but they are never the cheapest & subaru used parts hold good value due to demand & low number of subaru vehicles in the dismantling networks.

change struts to standard non SLS.

If SLS faulty & got saggy rear then worth mucking with but if in good order I would leave alone & spend money on checking all suspension bushes are in good order & buying quality tyres/wheels perhaps

Lowered foresters tend to be a worthless job unless done well.

We done a 2.5XT & rather than lowering we used KYB struts to replace worn SLS & fitted custom rated standard height springs all round to give firmer ride & little less body roll.

Problem with impreza suspension swap is you need do some homework so use a good donor option plus you need buy good used 100% standard rather than half dead & fitted with unknown non standard springs, buying suspension used is a risky game.
