You’re the proud owner of a Subaru Forester. While you love your car, you wish some things were better.
Whether you are looking for Subaru Forester mods to boost performance or you want to take your vehicle on off-road adventures, it’s essential to know where to start.
The Forester is a compact SUV created in Japan.
It has a 4-cylinder engine, which is adequate for a daily driver. However, if you want to adventure offroad, you might want to make some modifications.
What to Do Before You Mod Your Subaru
Before you make a single change to your Forester, you need to take it in for maintenance. Make a full-service maintenance appointment—what most people call a tune-up.
Check and change all the fluids and filters. Check the plugs and plug wires, timing belt, brakes, rotors and callipers, wheel bearings, and other mechanical parts.
Another thing to do before considering Subaru Forester mods is to check it for rust.
Check the struts, the quarter panels, and the frame. Why check for rust? Because a rusted vehicle may not hold together for an offroad modification.
Suspension Is Important for Off-roading
Your suspension plays a role in both performance and comfort. If you want your off-roading experience to be a comfortable, safe one, a good suspension is something that you want to invest in.
Luckily, there are some quality aftermarket parts for your Subaru available.
Often, you’ll find that the self-leveling struts fail on older Foresters. That causes the struts to bottom out.
You’ll want to take care of that problem. You will want to invest in Heavy Duty springs if you carry gear routinely.
Do your research and choose springs that don’t provide too rough a ride while off-roading.
Boost your Subaru Forester’s performance and off-roading capabilities with quality aftermarket parts.
Before your Subaru Forester mod, get a good tune-up to ensure your car is ready for modification and check the frame, body, and other areas for rust.
Once those things are done, it’s time to turn your attention to the modification process.
