This often leads to a mushy feeling in the brake pedal. One way to combat this is to use a brake master cylinder brace. This minimizes movement and increases brake pedal feel.
NOTE: We also sell the official 2014+ Forester master cylinder brace, however this updated product is easier to install.

Purchased a 17 Forester manual, and was like, these brakes are crap! Did some research and came upon the Cusco brake brace. After watching install videos between, Perrin and Cusco, I went with Cusco because the ease of the install.
I couldn't be happier, you felt the difference right away! Car stop more confidently with less pressure. Although this part surely is much heavier than the Perrin I'm sure because it's made of steel.
Really like the pedal feel, and goes well with strut tower bars and rear sway bar
Really helps stiffens up the brake feel and feels like it helps with the other suspension upgrades that I've done. Honestly, there really isn't a downside to this - I don't know why it isn't factory.
Getting the bolts on the underside were a bit of a pain, but man was it well worth it. That spongy squish feeling was gone immediately. Plus, the Cusco blue is a nice accent to the engine bay.
Easy install, immediate effect!
This was super simple to install. Was a little tight, but not bad. The brake feels loads better than before. Highly Recommend!
Why isn't this stock?
Yes its a pain to install, grease up your hand so you don't get it stuck lol. The brake peddle goes from smoosh to solid and smooth in 30 mins with this piece that should have been stock.
One of the essential mods
Easily installed on the 2.5i 2017 Forester. Greatly improved pedal feedback. Very solid and durable bracket!
took all of 15 minutes to install, better feel from brake pedal solid construction, highly recommend, the difference is noticeable when you brake.
Solid construction in brilliant Cusco blue. Probably the easiest install you can do for a performance gain. Better feel from the brake pedal. The difference isn't extreme, but it was enough for me to notice. I noticed performance to be better on my 2015 than with the brace for my 2004.
Should Come Stock on Vehicle
This was the 1st mod done to the car. It was waiting at home before my wife bought her car. She bought the car on a Saturday afternoon and I installed it on Sunday. It helps to bring the stock pedal feel to a close to acceptable level cheaply and quickly. Quality part and easy install.
