Subaru debuted the Forester in 1997 as one of the first crossover SUV’s and an entire new automotive market was born, car like styling with enough ground clearance to clear pretty much anything in its path. While that is all well and good, everyone at Air Lift Performance seems to have a phobia of wheel gap and vehicles that just seem to sit way too high. With it’s truck like stance and less than stellar handling capabilities, the Forester definitely does not strike you as the ultimate vehicle to have scraping pavement. So with that in mind and a nervous twitch the ALP engineers went to work on designing the best air suspension possible for the Forester.
Any old strut up front would simply not do to cure the Forester’s ride height issue. So we took our 30 level adjustable, monotube threaded body struts and topped it off with a smooth riding double bellow air spring for the ultimate in drop and ride comfort. To help you get the most out of your suspension we included adjustable camber plates made from T6061 aluminum and anodized in a rich red color to match the end caps of the air springs. All of this adds up to a 6.2″ drop from standard height in the front!
To drop the rear 5.9″ we used the same style threaded body, monotube strut was used in conjunction with a smooth ride progressive rate sleeve style air spring. To help with alignment and handling we have integrated an adjustable camber plate made of T6061 red anodized aluminum with high quality spherical bearings to mirror the front suspension. All of this coupled with 30 different levels of damping adjustment really allow you to fine tune your ride quality and handling performance.
Now you can convert your Forester from utilitarian to show stopper literally with the push of a button. With this much height adjustability the possibilities are endless to what you can do with your crossover. Add the fact that you can change the handling performance with the twist of the knob and you have the ultimate in crossover vehicles. Lowered stance, improved ride quality and amazing handling, that’s a crossover that will restore our engineering staff’s sanity!
