Would an H Brace for a 06 Impreza fit a 08 Forester?

No Turbo here, but why would it fit on a Turbo, but not on a n/a?

Since they are both based on the same platform
and no major changes have been done in those model years.

It should fit.

Might want to peek at the sway bar mounts and sizes.

The turbo model is different than the NA version.

if the brace is for the 06 impreza 2.5i, then it will fit.

but if its listed as 06 WRX/STi then it will not fit. different exhaust placement for the turbo makes it fit.

I think it all depends on what brand it is...I have seen universal ones that will fit both turbo and n/a models...

i got one for my 96 impreza outback, ebay brand, cusco, then a Mine's, none fit, they all hit my exhaust. same thing with a friend on his 03 2.5rs.

you can get the control arm brace which is the bar that goes between the control arms, but not a H-brace.

ya that is a sub frame brace, like a sub-frame connectors for third gen camaro/firebird and foxbody mustangs. that is not a replacement for your oem parts, just adds to it.
