How in the world did you bend them? There's several Foresters here in NE OH local yards, but that'd be a huge drive from Beth. Try car-parts.com and search for cheapest within distance. Don't rely on a "yard's point grading" system either. I've found near new parts (like a reman starter for my Saab that must have been in the previous car for 3-6 months as the stickers were still on it and it had ZERO rust for $35) and other yards wanted 3-5 times as much. If it's pulled from car and on shelf, have them describe the bushing and overall condition. It'll save you a wasted trip. I believe the Forester is different (maybe someone else will confirm while this is at the top). Up to 99' the Legacy and Outback are the same though.

I'm on my cell or I'd confirm go to http://www.opposedforces.com and compare part numbers for outback and forester in your generation

Legacy up to 99


Impreza up to 07


Forrester up to 08


Watch out though early legacy ones have a different swaybar mount, or some have no swaybar mount but all those will fit, same length and size.
