Default Raceland coilovers

I spoke with raceland about forester setup on the Impreza. They claim they are taller and more spring rate.

Iím not looking to really loose much height and honestly if I could get some height I would be happy.

Figure if I could get a set of budget coilovers vs my possibility 190k struts on the daily would be an ok upgrade.

Just not looking to drop the car much

Wast sure if anyone has done this setup in the past.

I did search FYI

I may be wrong but I think I've heard cheap coilovers are going to cost you more because they'll crap out faster and you'll have to replace them again way sooner than just going with stock

My thought process is that i might be able to get a small lift out of it. Not a ton of price friendly options, compared to King springs and buying new struts.

FCS manufacturers a good entire strut assembly, quick strut and they are a factory replica. They are very good and I've used them on a few different vehicles with good results. I'm real meticulous with automotive parts and I usually replace with factory or factory that comes inside of the manufacturers box with the factory stamp filed off. I purchased the FCS as a temporary replacement until the full set of 4 Sachs strut assemblies became available for our Volvo XC90 T6. We were so impressed by the ride quality of the FCS Assemblies that we kept them and that was about 2 years ago. They XC90 is driven frequently and on tough roads in NY.

Make sure to find a set of forester blocks for the front cradle and the tranny cradle (I don't know if the 4eat has the blocks on the tranny, may only be on the 5eat). These keep the driveline in the right geometry. If you just lift... You are gonna keep popping your axles out.
