Anybody tried KYB struts?

This means that the Subaru Forester is next in line to get its mushy struts replaced and a bit of brakework.
KYB seems to have a strut that is about 15% harder.
What I really would like to do is change the struts and springs from say a 2003 WRX but I hear the fronts won't fit.

FYI, KYB is the manufacturer of Subaru's stock struts.

Ought to keep me busy for a while.

I was kind of tempted by the AGXs but figured for Home Depot runs the 15% stiffer shocks should be fine.
If a bird lands on my hood now the car bounces for a half hour so anything has to be better.
My other car being a small sports roadster that rides like a truck (wife hates it) means I should keep the Forester somewhat civilized.

There was a sparrow on the top of a car (doesn't really matter what car and where, I don't remember anyway), and it was like this, no exagerration: every time the sparrow hopped, the car's alarm system said "honk!". After 7 or 8 hops the sparrow got bored or frustrated and left the car. One nice example of stupidly adjusted car alarm -- the bird only weighs a couple ounces, and it triggers the alarm?!
Or maybe the owner disliked birds.
(Sorry again for this interruption, -- please go ahead with the main topic).

Anybody done them on a Forester? any thing odd to look out for?
Was checking my Subaru manual last night which is one of the useless universal ones and it does not look that hard.
