Has anyone ever put Forestor suspension (springs/struts) on either your impreza or legacy for a nice lift? I know it can be done but I want to know what the ride was like and if you needed to do anything other than swapping out the top hats. I have my legacy lowered now, but I think i want to jack it up a little :)

Bumping this thread back to life. I'm interested in doing this to my 94 L. Does anyone have any info on this? I'd hopefully be using just the forester springs on the impreza struts. Which tophats will I need to use, and can I reuse the strut mounts? I don't want too much lift but an inch or two would be great. Can this be done? Please let me know.Thanks.

impreza/forester fronts are the same, the impreza rear tophats must be used on the rear struts of the impreza

Thanks for the info. Did you ever get around to trying this? Also, what about 95-99 legacy wagon springs into a 94 L sedan? Any more info about this would be excellent. Thanks all.

So I am guessing the GC strut will not fit the rear of an 03 Forester?
