I got my new springs but i was thinking is there anything else i have to replace like shocks or some bolt or anything? I live in Mexico and am going to texas to get my springs so i need to know if there is anything else i need while i am there. If i need shocks, what kind, what size, model numbers maybe??

Thanks, Ben

I just installed Scorpions on my Baja, they also fit the Forester. I did not need taller shocks, but I did look for some. Never found them.

The only thing you will not notice is the decrease in down travel. But, I have not noticed it at all.

So, judge for yourself. As I said, I didn't find any taller strut inserts or shocks to replace the stocks with. If you know of any let me know.

As far as I know you just swap out the springs. Nothing else needed.
