I have recently changed from stock Fozz suspension to WRX wagon suspension.I must say the wagon suspension gives abetter ride ,softer and handles alot better.
 
I have also driven my friends Fozz with BCs and the BCs deliveres a similar ride quality to to OEM Fozz XT suspension

Guess it all depends what you set them to. But if that was set to the softest setting then I would be very happy!

I had a set of lowest cost BCs fitted to my 04 XT last year. Quality product.
Ride was much harder and could maybe even be described as as bouncy, like a pogo stick, especially over speed bumps.  Must be because they were much stiffer than the stock suspension.  Or I just need to fiddle with spring pretension and ride height...

I had been running then on softest setting many weeks for comfort.  
On track day I had to adjust to hardest to improve handling.

Hi Steve
Tried to find these models on the BC Racing site but they only have the 4 main categories. i.e. BR, RM, ER and V1
The ones you offer are from the V1 and BR ranges, right?
What is the difference in the model in each range?
I'm looking for something that will improve the handling of the car to match with a Slight engine upgrade. Also being able to lower the ride height by about 1-2 inches would suit me greatly.
Thanks
Chris

X coils and springs or wrx spring and shocks if using car on road only.

Wrx setup is about 1500 to 3000 depending on km on the car it comes off.

Has anyone fitted BC to a SH XT? I am not impressed with the SLS on the rear.
Another option, Subaru non SLS and change springs.
Another option is springs and KYB at R1K per shock.
On tarred bumpy roads at 60KM/h, the backside is bouncing up and down.
At 120KM/H in a corner and a bump is encountered, it does not feel safe.

The SG XT handles muuuuuch better than the SH XT on the same road (same tyres).
My ex Chev Orlando (similar shape and size) handled much better than the Forester SH XT.

I just want to improve handling as I do not feel safe in the vehicle, The power is wasted if you do not feel confident.

Recently fitted the BC's to the STI and I must confess that its a totally new car. The STI setup was very hard and bouncy. This is turned all the way down (softest) and drives like WRX.

I removed the 3 month old sls and replaced with Subaru springs and kyb shocks. It is a massive improvement.
It could however still be stiffer.
