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!

Hey gang sorry to bring up an old thread, but I have a set of 2011 WRX sedan struts and springs that I will be fitting to my Foz in the near future. Besides wheel alignment, would I need buy any extra bolts or bits and pieces to make sure that it's sitting properly? I don't drive it hard so I just want it to be relatively straight to not unnecessarily wear out the tyres.

I put 2008 STi struts/springs into my SH and was able to reuse all nuts & bolts. I believe the WRX front struts are a direct swap with no modification whereas the STi struts needed elongated holes.

Alignment will be mandatory but you have that covered. The only issue I had was getting negative camber on the front. It was sitting at +0.70 from memory and even after adding some whiteline Com C hats, I've only just been able to get about -0.6deg camber. My rears are -2.1deg with no adjustment. You may have better luck with the WRX pieces.
