Not sure on the suspension specs coil overs of some sort, but im sure if ya sent them a email they might tell ys hey..I think its a great effort and the Forester runs a Auto trans and standard size brakes hey, looks like its running 15in wheels as well..

Hears a pic of front suspension



And also looks pretty stock under the bonnet

Rob is an absolute gentleman and either he or his son Dean will more than likely answer the phone, I'm sure if you don't piss in his pocket too much and explain you are over east he'll happily tell you but I doubt they are the type of shock/spring combination that will give you much change out of $3 -4,000 and were possibly changed/re-built more than once, they would be rally spec as that's what they build as a mainstay for the business.

Tyres would more than likely be rally spec 205/60-15 but 16's are pretty rare.

Looking at photos on the australasian safari website the tyres are pirelli scorpion atr's. can't zoom the pics enough to get tyre sizes though. it's odd most photos of the car on their site show it with bfg ko t/a tyres.
