So I'm lifting my car on Forester XT suspension and I have 2 Koni Yellow Inserts and was wondering whether if installing them would yield more handling performance benefits if I placed the pair in the rear or front. Or if it would be worth it to buy another two. Also would there be any cons or weird handling characteristics with these set ups?

My car had a puck lift and it made it super twitchy and it really had exaggerated body roll.

If you get camber plates and adjustable control arms you should be able to tweak out a lot of that though. Also remember everything will be at an increased angle so anything that's worn will wear to failure faster.

I think there is a picture of my car lifted in my thread. You can see the wheels are off center of the wells and the camber is wonky

I'm expecting the advanced rate of wear. Would an upgraded rear sway and the yellow inserts in the rear compensate for some of the body roll and possibly eliminate some understeer? I know I have to invest in trailing arm brackets as well as camber bolts to sort out camber and the centering of the rear wheels following the lift just have to order some still.
