I've had the Pedders springs on stock struts for a few years now. I've not noticed any bounce at all. Sounds like you may have a shot strut?

Hi guys! I want to ask for your help. I want to improve the suspension of my FXT SH '10 and I found that Tein HighTech + KYB could be my best alternative (mine has SLS), since it's the cheapest one that I found because I live in Chile and everything I want must be imported. But I read in this and other forums that I could have some issues when loading the back of the car due to the lower values in spring rates mainly compared to Pedders and Swifts. These other options are much more expensive when shipping them to Chile. Did some of you try this alternative and checked it when loading the car and/or having 5 passangers? Please help me!

Do you know some shops for buying Pedders or Swifts for cheap, and a moderate internacional shipping costs?

Thanks in advance!

No, they aren't blown. Car only has 32k on it, pedders have been on since 15k. I've been under there. no leaking or anything. Just feels like the struts themselves could use more dampening force. It really only shows itself at highway speed.

Currently running STI struts and springs.
Would like the foz to sit a little lower (10-15mm)
What's a good spring option or am I better of paying the extra $$ and going with mca coilovers?

Cmac,
is this the first post here to mention MCA coilovers?

Please anyone using MCA coilovers on their SH Foresters give us a review? The good the bad and the ugly! We can take it!
