Yes they went to the self levellers on the SG5 model which where shite. The shockers not the car. 

Pedders do a direct replacement which are good especially if going off road. 

Have heard of people using discovery springs which new shocks.

Have just bought a forester xt. It will be my second forester. Will be beefing up the rear suspension with disco springs I think. Cheaper than buying pedders again

Rear ends high but hit a 5 inch pot hole at 30  mph it feels like you hit a kurb good if you put 2 lads in back 3-4 dogs then you dont get that boaty feeling i may be put pedders on or iron man lift kit on rear
